Air-filled saddle?(6 posts)

How come there doesn't seem to be an adjustable air-filled saddle on the market - seems an abvious idea (obvious as shoes at least). Am I onto a money spinning market idea, or have they crashed and burned in the past?

I thought about a similar idea when buying/breaking in a Brooks saddle. Since you have orthotics for the feet, (mold of the foot) why not an ass orthotic? You sit onto some substance that forms an impression of the sit bones, mold it into a seat, cover with some sexy thin glove leather and you got a money maker. We got custom bikes, shoes, why not saddles?

The Campy Electa saddle was available in the late-80s/early-90s. Leather cover, a presta valve for air, and came with a rubber bulb for inflation. Around 500 grams for the saddle, probably even more than a Brooks Pro weighs. I still have one, on the shelf. Frankly, my San Marco Eras, at 230 or so grams, are much more comfortable.
