Når var siste gangen du så et sete som var funksjonelt og som hadde et stilig design?Av: Mona Forsnes

Brit Brother er gjengen bak designet av setet og dette ser ut til å være et seriøst forslag på å tenke på det rompa vår har tenkt lenge: Deilig med et underlag som faktisk er behagelig å sitte på samtidig at den gir kroppen muligheter til å rulle over i stedet for å løfte den (miste kontakten med sykkelen) for å bytte stilling og! som også hjelper deg hvis du får en high-side!

Designet er bygd på en serie med ruller som er satt sammen med et system av tannhjul og aksler. Dette gjør at du ikke bare får muligheten til å rulle over i en ny stilling men den også demper plutselige forandringer som oppstår i en high-side. I tillegg kommer også muligheten for systemet til å balansere eksakt innstilling og interesse for hver enkelt fører.

Presse Release fra Brit Brothers:

For almost a century the motorcycle seat has seen little advance in either its design or function. And yetthe modern rider experiences more movement across this area of the bike than any other. The result is a compromise, where each rider must learn to overcome its shortfalls by sacrificing aerodynamics and energy. To address this issue, the Brit Brothers have developed the Chicane Saddle A motorcycle racing seat designed to harmonize rider with machine. The innovative design incorporates toothed belts and tapered rollers which rotate under the riders weight. Combine this with inbuilt recoil and friction controls and you have a racing seat which can be individually tuned to the riders needs. The result allows the rider to achieve a smooth, arc-like, motion through corners and chicanes.

Aerodynamics:
When cornering on a fixed seat bike the rider is forced to rise up, and out of the aerodynamic bubble. This can slow down and unbalance the bike. Although modern riders train themselves to overcome this shortfall, it is, nonetheless, a shortfall. Our intention with the Chicane saddle is to allow the rider to remain in contact with the seat for longer periods, remaining inside the bikes aerodynamic bubble.

Rider Energy:
During the course of a race the rider uses valuable energy to shift their body weight through corners. Consequently the rider becomes increasingly tired and fatigued. By employing recoil and specifically placed rollers, the Chicane Saddle aids the transfer of body weight through corners by up to 20%. This leaves the rider stronger and prolongs endurance.

The High-Side:
A High-Side is when the bikes rear wheel regains traction after spinning. The result can catapult the rider off of the bike. Because the Chicane Saddle allows longitudinal movement across the saddles surface it absorbs some of the aggressive sideways motion which occurs during a High-Side. We believe this might be the difference between the rider being able to catch the bike, or not.
