While a bit strange looking, the Infinity saddle is far from the most bizarre saddle we’ve seen. Resembling a typical saddle in its silhouette, the Infinity stands out not for what is visible, but by what is missing. Namely, the center of the saddle.
What may seem like a bizarre take on the traditional bike saddle has proven itself through successful Kickstarter, and further refinements to become the N-Series and L-Series saddles that are available today. If the full cutout N-Series is a bit intimidating, the L-Series might be more to your liking…
So just what is going on with this crazy thing? Well, as it was explained to us at Press Camp, the idea is to take the pressure off the pelvic bones. This causes the Glutes to take up more of the brunt of support, but more importantly distributing the pressure more evenly to reduce pressure points. Infinity promises comfort without a break in period as well as a flexible saddle that works with most body types while being fairly light weight.
As the most minimalistic, the N-Series is also the least expensive Infinity saddle at $170. That may seem like a lot for a completely untested (by you) saddle design, but the company offers a 30 day guarantee for comfort and performance. Weighing in at 210g, the N-Series uses injection molded nylon for the seat and includes steel rails in black chrome, gold, chrome, or copper.
Using basically the same design as the N-Series, the L-Series adds a covering of top grain cowhide leather to add a bit of padding and a touch of support in the cutout area. If you can’t get over the looks of the N-Series, this might be the winner. Again available with multiple rail colors, the L-Series is available with tan, black, white, red, or blue leather covers for $240. As a little extra incentive to try it out Infinity is offering $25 off any order at checkout with the code “XMAS25” until the end of the year.
