Big air, Sick style – the DJ/BMX sport saddle uses the same technology developed for the DH saddle, but with steel rails, stealth black graphics. The story behind the design of the DH saddle is one of legend. It was developed specifically to conquer the most demanding World Cup Downhill tracks on the planet. As mountain bike geometry design progresses, saddle design must also keep pace. Our partnership with the UR Team and legendary riders such as Mick and Tracey Hannah has helped us do just that. Smanie DJ/BMX sport saddle: used by Pro downhill and enduro mountain bikers from the NS-Bikes – UR Team and dirt jump rider Alec Eklöw.
Cash is king
The DJ/BMX sport saddle uses the same tried and true design as our DH series saddles, but comes in at a price that won’t break the bank. But, we didn’t skimp on features, the DJ/BMX saddle uses the same high-end microfiber cover as our premium saddles, so you keep money in your pocket and steez on your ride.
Extra Padding for Extra Comfort
The Smanie DJ/BMX sport saddle comes with ample padding on the sides and the nose of the saddle to protect those who live to send it.
It is at Smanie’s core to always be pushing the limits as to what we can do to make our saddles more environmentally friendly. We start by producing all of our products from recycled materials. That includes our covers, foam, bases, rails, and even our packaging.
A shell that is soft, but not too soft
Getting the shell of the saddle just right is crucial; a shell that flexes too much will cause your saddle to wear out prematurely or break, too-stiff, and it will be a very rough ride and cause undesirable pressure issues in some positions. The DH shell uses a modified version of the tried and true GP series shell, which is light enough for a World Tour road race, yet strong enough to win the World Cup DH overall title.
Riding Posture: Medium/Endurance
Note: The DJ/BMX sport saddle uses a two-rail system, not pivotal.
