Product description

Season : 2015
Weight : 0.4KG

Fabric are a young company based here in the UK. They make saddles mainly, but not like anyone else. As a result theirs is a range that is aesthetically pleasing, light and stiff in good measure and in the right balance; and that fit. They don't have saddles for mountain bikers or roadies specifically, rather their range of saddles is aimed simply at those who ride a bike. Period. Once you know which shape in the range best suits, you're left only with the decision about base, rail and colour – but we'll get to that!

Like most saddle brands of note, Fabric have a structured range with a fitting system designed to assist the rider in selecting the most appropriate saddle. Fabric’s fit system is based on a person’s Somatotype which refers to the underlying bone structure of an individual. This is an important point as this measure is not affected by diet, fitness or training so the saddle that suits, will always suit. Interestingly, your Somatotype can be determined not by measuring your lower half, but rather by two simple measurements: height and - believe it or not - wrist circumference!

There are 3 Somatotypes :Ectomorph (Light bone structure), Mesomorph (Average, larger structure) and Endomorph (Broad) and Fabric produce saddles to suit each type which vary in width, 134mm, 142mm and 155mm and each one of their saddles is designed for performance and comfort rather than sacrificing one for the other.

By far and away the most common Somatotype is the Mesomorph and it is for this reason the bulk of Fabric’s range consists of the 142mm Scoop saddle which is designed for those with a naturally athletic physique and able to achieve well defined muscles*

The Scoop is an extremely versatile, cross-genre saddle. Like all of Fabric’s offerings, it is constructed from just 3 parts; a bonded cover, rail and base which removes any excess materials and staples to give a light weight, comfortable and tidy product. It is available in a range of base and rail materials to suit budget and riding preference. In order to cater for a broad spectrum of riders there are 3 degrees of shaping (curve) available :

Flat : For those with high differentials (saddle drop to handlebar) ie. A race position but also those who may have a relatively long leg

Shallow : An all-round position and for averagely proportioned people.

Radius : A more pronounced curve for those with a relatively low differential (sportive or endurance position) or those with a relatively short leg.

Ultimately, the Scoop will suit the majority of cyclists and their specific cycling needs, the question of rail and base material will be entirely up to you and your wallet. A healthy range of colour options means that you will be able to colour match where required, whilst the stalwart traditionalists will be happy with the all black option available across the saddle spectrum.

The Fabric Scoop Elite featured here has a nylon base, hollow Cro-mo rail and lightweight PU foam covered with a waterproof microfibre for durability and easy cleaning. Available in numerous colours. Likely to be the most common choice, this SHALLOW version of the Scoop will suit a broad spectrum of riders with an average differential and who vary their position by moving around the bars during their rides.

    Really happy with this. Looks great and the weight is more than acceptable given the price. Above all, it has been comfortable from the outset. The saddle has just got on with doing the job, which is what you want from a saddle. Unless you are chasing the grams, I cannot really see why you would need anything more.
    YES Steve would recommend this item

It then becomes the recipient's responsibility to collect the parcel or rearrange delivery with the service. We accept no liability if the delivery is not made due to the recipient not being available. If the recipient fails to contact the service in good time the goods will be returned to us and a charge will be made for re-delivery to that or an alternative address.

    In the event that you select a business address for delivery we shall be deemed to have delivered the order to its intended recipient by delivering it to the reception area of the business address.

    We will deliver to the address as you enter it and cannot accept any liability for late or failed delivery if the quoted address is incorrect. Additional charges will be made for redirection or for re-delivery due to postcode error.
