Cobb Fifty Five
Cobb The Fifty-Five is the first saddle using our exclusive JOF or ‘Just Off Front’ geometry by John Cobb. This saddle was specifically designed to address certain needs within the Triathlon and road market.
Our continuing saddle research, using pressure mapping systems that show the critical contact pressure points for both men and women, have led us to recognize the need for a new and different saddle design allowing us to serve all types of riders with our full-line of saddles. Our traditional saddle designs generally provide great airflow and pressure control but occasionally there is a need for a more unobtrusive area for the front end of the saddles. As the line of saddles name implies, your soft tissue or genitals are ‘Just Off the Front’ when riding this saddle properly. The JOF line will be made up of short-nosed saddles, which can help with cooling and numbness.
The sides of the new Fifty-Five saddle are specifically shaped to not interfere with upper hamstrings and to allow for multiple riding positions. No saddle should be limited to just one position, the Fifty-Five will offer the rider many options in positions for increased comfort.
The Fifty-Five is also compatible with our patent-pending rear hydration mount, which mounts to the base of the saddle and not the rails, allowing for a broader range of adjustment and usage.
NARROW SHORT-NOSE SADDLE
The Fifty Five is one of the narrowest short-nose saddles on the market to help relieve inner leg chafing.
MULTI RIDING POSITIONS
With a short front-end and larger rear, you can stay comfortable while low in aero position or sitting up.
Back pain can easily be caused by hamstring interference. The Fifty Five is designed to resolve this issue.
FORMULATED MEMORY FOAM
With the right amount of padding the need for a thick chamois is eliminated for a more comfortable long distance ride.
LONGER SEAT RAILS
Most saddles have 65mm of rail adjustment range. Our Fifty Five has 105mm adjustment range allowing you to tune your position for better performance.
The nose design of the Fifty Five saddle allows for soft tissue or crotch relief by addressing numbness for both men and women.
The Fifty Five’s split nose and extended deep relief channel allows for superior airflow to help keep the chamois area dry.
MORE POWERFUL RIDING POSITION
The Fifty Five provides the option to ride more aggressively in aero position while delivering more power.
