Terry bicycle saddles are known for their ergonomic and dynamic fit. The anatomical form is adjusted for every type of riding style to keep pressure from causing pain. A key to spending time cycling is being comfortable and Terry is an important part of that comfort.

Terry Arteria Race Saddles

The new Arteria has become a standard in the world of MTB and Road racing. With men’s and women’s specific versions as well as various gel thicknesses, Terry offers a saddle for everyone. The saddle widths of the Terry Arteria series are available at 9-12 cm in the standard and 12-15 in the max versions.

Terry Exera Sport Saddles

Based on the legendary Fly and Butterfly, the Exera is the new standard in sport saddles. If you find race saddles to uncomfortable and fitness saddles to plushy, then the Exera is right for you. The Exera series is offered in 9-12 cm standard and 12-15 max widths.

Terry Figura Fitness Saddles

The Figura is a crossover between Terry touring and sport saddles and is great on bikes used for fitness. The increased width and 3-zone comfort principle are the best way to relive pressure in the genital area. The narrow shape offers plenty of space for movement as well. The Figura series is offered in 9-12 cm standard and 12-15 max widths.

Terry Fisio Touring Saddles

The Fisio is the perfect saddle for going the distance on long tours. The larger width is ideal for the touring position and the 3-zone comfort principle keeps everything super comfortable. The Fisio series is offered in 9-12 cm standard and 12-15 max widths.

Terry Anatomica Saddles

Using a large width, modern foam and the 3-zone comfort principle, Terry’s city saddles are great at offering comfort on short to long tours as well as urban adventures. Depending on the model, some include gel inlays to increase the amount of comfort. Use the Anatomica saddle on your city bike to get the most out of riding.

Saddle Discomfort

"Discomfort can be prevented with the right saddle."

Sascha, Marketing

The majority of body weight rests on the saddle while cycling. This can lead to numbness and pain in the seat bones, genital or soft areas. It can also lead to discomfort from friction.

Where?

Mostly an incorrect saddle position on longer rides can increase discomfort. The saddle can sometimes cause numbness or pain around the pelvic region. The Nervus pundendus nerve is often responsible for this.

Prevention

The most important thing is to spread out body weight correctly across the saddle. This can best be done by using a proper saddle that matches your seat bone distance. This allows for a large enough space to properly distribute weight.

How does a saddle stem discomfort?

Pressure on arteries and nerves usually cause pain and discomfort. A cut out in the middle of the saddle can usually help here. The cut out needs to be made specifically for both male and female anatomy. High-quality foams and gels can also help relieve discomfort and friction while riding.

The difference in seat bone distance and genital shape by men and women makes gender specific saddles a must and require a certain ergonomic shape:

  1. Cut out is shaped based on genital region
  2. Smooth transition from cut out to rest of saddle prevents pressure points
  3. Pressure is best distributed for all riding types
