When it comes to comfort, it only takes one ride down a cobbled street for your sit bones to get the rude awakening that your saddle just doesn't have what it takes in the cushion department. Fortunately, companies like Selle SMP have a deep understanding of the punishment that rough roads can put on the body, which is why they craft the Plus Saddle for Men with a little extra cushion to take away the sting. This saddle combines sleek, hand-stretched leather and Lorica uppers with a generous 159mm width to keep you supported through the long miles. At first glance, the Plus Saddle might cause some confusion with its overpronounced downturned nose, but we assure you that there's a purpose to this well designed (albeit unusual) appearance. Selle's downturned saddle nose offers significant benefits to your ride. First, it combines with the wide center channel to reduce pressure on your most sensitive anatomy, but secondly it offers a perch to balance on when you're out of the saddle and crushing steep grades, but need to put just a little extra torque down.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
