Typically riders will find there is a 1-2 week period before your body will adapt to the change in position and saddle surface.
WHICH WIDTH DO YOU NEED AND HOW DOES IT MATCH UP WITH YOUR CURRENT SADDLE? (REPRESENTED NOSE WIDTHS OF OUR SADDLES BY THE STAGE.9 AND STRIKE.9. THE TRI.7, STAGE.9, AND TT.9 WIDTHS ARE THE SAME)

HOW THE SIT ZONES MATCH UP WITH A TRADITIONAL SADDLE SHAPE.
(Shaded areas represent where your sit-bones should be located across the range)
STAGE.9 - Similar to the TT.9 and the Tri.7, the Stage.9's sit zone is very forward to accommodate an aggressive aero position.
STRIKE.9 - The Strike.9's sit zone is more suited to an upright position while still being accommodating to an aero position.
SLATE.7 - The Slate.7 has a more traditional sit zone that supports an upright position while maintaining perineal relief.
HOW TO SETUP YOUR SADDLE.
The proper setup range for a saddle (Stage.9 shown) is typically angled nose down at 1-3° based off the overall surface and not the rails.
