Shock and Vibration are the real world forces acting on your body that cause rider discomfort and fatigue. Take a moment and think about your last ride and ask yourself – Are rough roads and constant vibration cheating me out of the ride I deserve? If the answer is yes, you owe it to yourself to read on and learn more about what Gel-Core Technology can do for you.
Newton’s third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Understanding the forces acting on your body while riding is critical to understanding why homogenous polyurethane foam seats developed in the late 1940’s and probably on your motorcycle right now are preventing the extended ride times you desire. Saddlemen uses science to change everything by offering the Step-Up line of seats featuring our unique manufacturing process known as Gel-Core Technology.
Gel-Core is engineered to dampen, divert, and deflect energy through a mechanical process resulting in a smooth, therapeutic ride. Our technique combines a specifically formulated viscoelastic polymer also known as SaddleGEL with the latest in co-molding comfort technology to reduce engine vibration transmitted to your body by up to 50%, and reduce direct impact forces by up to 92%.
Saddlemen invented Gel-Core Technology and today we are widely recognized as the industry leader, selling more gel seats than any other seat manufacturer. However when it comes to the benefits of gel don’t take our word for it – Follow the links below to learn about some of the exciting places you can find similar gel polymers.
NASA uses gel to protect sensitive camera equipment on the Space Shuttle Discovery as it pierces the Earth’s atmosphere at 17,000 mph. NASA also uses gel to keep the International Space Station in orbit, gel is currently used in the medical industry for Wheelchairs and Hospital beds to promote blood flow, and see how a major league baseball mitt manufacturer utilizes this cutting edge material to dampen the impact of a 100mph fast ball.
Every Saddlemen Step-Up seat is engineered with Gel-Core Technology to provide dynamic support for the rider and fit differently proportioned bodies.
Example of Gel-Core Pressure Test
Example of Foam Pressure Test
Instead of relying on foam cushions that may impose improper contours, a riding saddle with Gel-Core Technology provides a topographically neutral suspension that will conform to the shape of the person who sits in it. Using pressure-mapping technology, we experimented with different tensions across the backrests and seats, fine-tuning our designs to produce the desirable distribution patterns: peak pressure zones under the ischia, with wide distribution of lower values along the thighs and across the back, avoiding the spine and the area behind the knees.
Extra foam padding does not necessarily solve the problem, because a too-soft seat can put pressure on the gluteus maximus muscles at the sides of the buttocks as well as on the heads of the femur bones and the sciatic nerves, resulting in the kind of discomfort experienced when sitting in a sling-type playground swing or a director’s chair.
Gel-Core Technology is a scientific approach to minimize circulation-restricting pressure with just the right combination of material layers, by curving the UltraFoam structure away from pressure-sensitive areas of the body and cushioning it with ComfortFoam while dampening shock and vibration with SaddleGEL. Co-Molding the materials with this technique is what makes Saddlemen’s Step-Up seat far superior to the homogenous polyurethane foam seat that came stock on your motorcycle.
When it comes to reducing the damaging effects of SHOCK and VIBRATION. Traditional OEM and foam after-market seats are no match for Saddlemen’s Gel-Core Technology.
