VeloNews: Boost Saddle is "Super Comfortable and Sleek"

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

VeloNews published a feature on the CADEX Boost saddle, detailing the development and launch of the new premium road saddle as well as its design, technologies and road performance. Technical editor Dan Cavallari gave it a near-perfect 4.5-star rating (out of 5) and claimed, “it’s so comfortable I may not take it off.”

Cavallari started with some background on the CADEX brand, writing: “The Boost saddle falls into this range of high-end components, and that’s exactly what you should expect from anything branded CADEX: high-end, intended for racing at the highest levels.”

Looking at the design of the Boost, he pointed out its truncated nose shape as one of the keys to its comfort: “Have you ever sat on the nose of a traditional saddle? It’s rather uncomfortable, and can even cause numbness or pain.” He also appreciated the Boost’s extra width at the rear for “a more comfortable perch that in turn helps stabilize the rider’s position while seated and keep pressure off sensitive areas that can cause pain or discomfort in the soft tissues or even down the rider’s legs.”

As for its ride feel, Cavallari wrote: “The top of the Boost feels somewhat flat, but I mean that in a good way: It feels as though I’m sitting on a soft, comfortable platform that was made specifically for my body. It’s rather impressive.”

Summing it up, Cavallari wrote: “If you’re in the market for a new high-end saddle, the Boost saddle is worth a look.”
