A jury of industry experts from bicycle and design-related industries gathered in Taiwan last month to choose this year’s winners from 110 entries. They selected a total of 38 winners, with five, including the Boost saddle, earning the coveted Gold Award.
The Boost saddle was developed with input from WorldTour road racing pros seeking a new type of road saddle that could deliver just the right balance of light weight (138 grams) comfort and performance. Built on an innovative two-piece composite frame that eliminates unwanted flex and maximizes power transfer, the saddle has been recognized by test editors and riders all around the world.
Jurors called the Boost a “beautiful execution of a complex product that balances aesthetics, structure and comfort.” Praising the saddle as “highly attractive, and lightweight with distinctive styling,” they wrote: “Typically a saddle at this weight would feel like sitting on a block of plastic, but the CADEX Boost distributes power evenly, resulting in a comfort that is unique for a premium ultra-light saddle.”
