Here at Speedhub we love The Speed and Comfort Range of Saddles for their Comfort and reliability, here’s what John Cobb has to say about them:
The Jcob Type R is a redesign of the classic Cobb Randee Saddle. The Type R saddle is designed for long hours on the road. It was designed for you Randonneuring riders that log a thousand miles over a long weekend. It was also designed for the Police Department bikes that ride in all conditions.
The Type R has a short nose section to aid with nerve pressure relief, a deep relief channel, and an air directional vane to help direct cooling air toward the rider’s crotch. Designed for a less aggressive bike setup, the rear is 148mm wide with a long broad curve for easier hip rotation. We found that for the Police officers, their gun belts “hung up” on standard saddles while dismounting, we solved that. And for you Gravel riders, we increased the seat rail height for more clearance. This seat is the King on those gravel roads giving an added suspension to your bike.
If you’re a larger rider, this saddle gives you a lot of room and for riders that have no drop or a +rise setup on the aero bars, this is your seat whether it be for a Sprint or an Ironman, you will like this.
