I was thinking the same thing when I saw the Bike Snob review these things yesterday.

'Biomechanical'?

It's somewhat of the antithesis of the Selle SMP.

It is rumored that this a subtle way to drop TT times of riders like me with broken tailbones. Theory being that this would be so uncomfortable that the rider would do his utmost to get off the d*** thing as soon as possible perhaps setting new personal bests in the process.

I see a split in reactions to this saddle.

Well, on this shot, it appears that the "ridge" is made of a soft material, so it should compress somewhat when sitting on it. But still......hurts to even think about it.

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Maybe they should change the E in ESSAX to an A.

"Shark prototypes are in the position of the technical committee of the UCI, which soon will give its verdict on their use in competition."

Andy will be the first to own one. Or is this another one of those Brailsford incremental gains?
