SDG Announces New Radar Mountain Saddle

Feb 25, 2019
by SDG Components  


With many innovations including the industry's first Kevlar saddle cover, the Bel-Air, and the winning-est World Cup DH combo – the I-Beam Technology saddle and post, we have been at the forefront of the MTB saddle game for over 25 years. The new RADAR platform is the culmination of all of those years of saddle technology. We understand that everyone has different needs, different riding styles, and different shape and material preferences when it comes to saddles, but we did our best to cater to all when developing this new base platform - starting off with RADAR Mountain model.

The new SDG RADAR Mountain Saddle is the first saddle to be based on SDG s new RADAR Platform
Our new RADAR Saddle Platform and our first model in the line, the RADAR Mountain.

The SDG RADAR Mountain Saddle

Built on rider feedback and blending key features from the Duster P Mtn, Circuit Mtn and Fly Mtn, the RADAR Mountain has an optimized shape to fit the majority of aggressive trail riders, with performance and all day comfort in mind.


• Free Float Comfort Flex – Adjusted position of the rails inserts to increase wing flex and rider comfort, while enhancing pedaling efficiency.
• Flat Forward Design – Allows for free movement on the saddle in aggressive riding positions.
• Rear Buzz Cutout – Extra tire clearance for modern 29’rs at full compression.
• Nose Platform – Provides extra support while shifting to front of saddle when climbing.
• Hidden Undercut Relief – Cutout in base of saddle to provide extra perineum comfort.
• Nylon Glass Base Bridge – Provides extra support for optimal power transfer.
• Peri Canal Groove – Pronounced center channel from tip to tail to ensure additional pressure relief.
• Optimal Pressure Distribution – Platform designed to minimize pressure on perineum and sit bones.
• Kevlar and Cordura Protective Sides – Helps eliminate saddle damage with protective sides.
• Available in Ti-Alloy, Cro-Mo and Steel Railed Options: 270mm x 138mm.
• Price Points that riders can actually afford: $49.99, $69.99 and $99.99

The SDG RADAR Mountain is currently being used by top Enduro riders, including Damien Oton and Keegan Wright of the Unior Devinci Racing Team.

The RADAR Mountain is available now, worldwide. If you're buying a new bike, keep your eyes peeled for the RADAR on bikes from: Canyon, Cube, Devinci, Guerrilla Gravity, Mondraker, Norco, Orange, Radon, YT and other selective leading brands.

Also stay tuned for future RADAR developments, as we're working on models with our friends at Deity, along with Cam Zink and Sensus. And later this summer, a Rear Rise platform model and a minimalist RADAR will be rolling out.

 I wish railed saddles had never been invented. I-beam is just so much simpler and easier to use

 Maybe simpler. But ugly as fu©k.

 We'll be bringing more options in I-Beam soon enough!

 Isn’t it more rigid?
  • 17 1
 It's also ALOT more stiff, most of a saddles comfort comes from the flex!

 @goroncy: because that's what's important in a saddle, looks... function before fashion unless you're 12.

 @SDG-COMPONENTS: So you make your own dropper, and the I-beam... how about an I-beam compatible dopper???

 @SDG-COMPONENTS: pls just make an adaptor Frown

 @Bromaphobe: that's a misconception as most people with I-Beam experience have only used I-Fly which is a race oriented saddle mostly used in DH. We can design I-Beam with just as much flex as traditional railed saddle, but it'll be more durable, easier to adjust and offer more adjustment than railed.

 @ratedgg13: it'll be coming. We commented on this in the Tellis launch, but essentially wanted to release dropper first as railed to validate our position as a dropper brand and then next we'll launch it with I-Beam head along with full complement of I-Beam trail saddles.

 Agreed. I miss those I-Beams.

 @SDG-COMPONENTS can you explain how having a large I-beam run front to back of the saddle will can be just as flexible as a saddle that is supported front and back with rails offering a sling effect.

 @lognar: check out our Formula line of saddles we did previously in I-Beam as they feature the I-Beam with a flex channel. I-Beam profile but mimics rail placement. It's how we offer I-Beam benefits but with flex of a standard railed option.

 @SDG-COMPONENTS: that Formula saddle was the best saddle ever made! Excited to try the new radar, Duster P has been under me for the past couple seasons.

 Deity have a line of I-Beam saddles that are made by SDG. They have a lower profile than the older I-Fly and are quite comfortable.

 Pivotal is the best! Used to have it on my mtb until dropper posts came along, just need a pivotal dropper now!

 @SDG-COMPONENTS: I still clinging to my formula TT railed saddle. I find it perfect for Enduro. I'll replace it with the ibeam version if it's as comfy

 Will have to hunt one down to try as I've been really struggling to find anything as comfortable as my original Bel Air saddles! The new versions just don't work for me, can find others that have the right amount of padding or ones that stop my bits going numb but not both together. Anyone found anything that suits them that used to ride the original Bel Air?

 No, I agree, but just rocking the 2.0....

 Hunt one down or any LBS can order one for you, just sayin.

 This appears to be the perfect saddle for me (based off just looking at it), if it only was rounded or flat on the back , instead of the batwing profile which I have found to catch my shorts and also hurt more when I get sketchy and run into the back of it.

 SDG, pease PLEASE do a a reissue of the S2000! You could call it the S2019 or S2020. Not only is it the most comfortable saddle l have ever used l am collector and l now have 7 high quality examples. Thanks :-)

 I have an i-fly saddle, I love how easy and dependable it is With the I beam, but damn it's hard On your butt, granted it is on my dh but when I'm just chilling sat on my bike I kinda want a bit of comfort

 See our comment above about I-Beam, the I-Fly is purpose built for DH but we can build an I-Beam saddle with plenty of flex for your trail bike use. Stoked you're loving I-Fly!
