The pad of the Bjōrn Probka saddle is made of cork. The cork is a natural cushioning material with excellent damping properties, which translates into smoothing of the vibrations from the road and still great power transfer.
In terms of cushioning and weight, Probka fits perfectly in between Bjōrn "raw carbon" Sedlo saddle and Setka saddle with a 3d printed pad.
The shape of the serial Probka saddle replicates the profile of the Setka saddle. Flexible and supportive, the cork pad deforms under the rider's pressure points over time, adjusting to the rider uniquely. This increases the contact area, providing comfort over a long distance. Serial Probka saddle features an 8 mm thick pad with a pressure relief channel in the front.
The durability of the cork as the material is confirmed by its use in the shoe and furniture industries. The cork pad of Probka is impregnated with a special compound that provides protection against moisture, salt and UV rays.
The shell of the Probka saddle is made of carbon with a triangular reinforcement pattern underneath. It allows good power transfer while flexing under a high load. Together with oval rails which are constructively bonded to the core, they make a reliable construction proven by time.
The Probka saddle weighs only 105 grams, which makes it one of the lightest padded saddles in the World.
