SDG's production I-Fly Storm saddle next to the first prototype made by Sam Hill's mechanic, Jacy.
SDG I-Fly Storm saddle details:
- I-Fly saddle shell
- Two versions: aggressive and less aggressive
- Tread is injection molded onto the saddle's cover
- Features a one piece stitch-less cover.
Our coverage from last year's Sea Otter of SDG's I-Fly Storm saddle certainly got people talking and now SDG has brought the saddle to production. While many riders won't understand or require the added traction that the Storm I-Fly saddle provides, it is no secret that World Cup riders have been gluing tire tread onto their saddle when conditions get nasty for years. The I-Fly Storm saddle is a much cleaner and ready to ride solution that does away with glue, instead attaching the rubber tread by micro injection. There are two versions of the saddle - the aggressive model shown here that Sam uses year round, and a less aggressive model that Brendan is fond of.
SDG main man, Tyler Anspach, showing off the first Storm saddle prototype that was hand made by Sam Hill's mechanic, Jacy. Tire tread was glued on and notes were written by hand after getting feedback from Sam, and the seat was then sent to Tyler for approval.
SDG's new X-Beam rail adapter allows riders to switch between traditional railed and I-Beam saddles. A single bolt that can be accessed from the side that controls both tilt and fore and aft adjustments.
