The Speedneedle of Jürgen Mikus offers the same seat comfort as a good standard saddle but does knock the spots off regarding the weight. Due to the bending oft he saddle shell and the yielding of the seat upholstery normal saddles do press on the perineal region. This is not the case with stiff saddles (Speedneedle). The result is a better blood circulation, no numbness. In addition the hollow upholstering in the perineal region avoids even numbness.
Since 2007 the Speedneedle gets delivered with a revised strut. Due to the new carbon-aramid-mix we can forgo the additional wrapping.
The Speedneedle strut does have a large clamping area which enables the use of nearly all straight posts at all bikes.

All saddle frames of tune saddles are highly oval with comm-before, coming-ahead + with 8x10mm, Speedneedle with 7,5×9,5mm and Skyacer with 7mm. So that there may occasionally be problems with the clamping with lateral clamps. Usually, however, special clamps are offered.
