The long awaited Rido Lt is finally here! It just looks fantastic. With Cr-Ti alloy rails and shape that will fit on any roadbike, you just should try what everyone is saying about this saddle.
Retailing at S$128, it has the same design philosophy as the R2 and it WILL relieve perineum trauma (backside pain).
HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE ARE ALREADY SAYING ABOUT THE NEW RIDO RLt
“The saddle is perfect!”
“I ordered one at first to try the new saddle out and I absolutely loved it. The saddle is perfect! I have 3 road bikes. I do about 350km a week and race a grade so the new RLt saddle is just what I wanted.
I found the best position for me was with the saddle nose pointed slightly down. I also found that the new saddle seems to stop me slipping forward. I feel very stable on it.
You have got a seriously good product here. I hope they sell like hot cakes, you deserve it. Thanks again you’re a legend!”

“…allows more pressure on the pedals”
“Road bike user….occasional weekend rider with an annual Alpine/Pyreneen trip to train for, plus the occasional sportive.
The look is fabulous and goes nicely with my white handlebar tape ! The encouragement the saddle gives you to stay on your sitbones is great and allows a lot more pressure on to the pedals…..sitbones get sore after a while but this is entirely remediable by more riding and loss of body weight…..previous saddles have been penury no matter how light I was or how much I cycled….definitely the way ahead.
Thanks for saving my hobby!”

“It looks like a ‘regular’ racing saddle but gives me the comfort that I only obtain with a Rido saddle”
“Only had it (RLt) a couple of weeks. So far I really like it. It’s on my Scott road bike, replaced my old Rido. It looks like a ‘regular’ racing saddle but gives me the comfort that I only obtain with a Rido saddle. Now I don’t get ribbed by my mates for having such an odd looking saddle! I like the fact it is lighter too. One piece of advice I’d give to anyone upgrading to the new saddle from the classic Rido is to lift up the seat post a little, as the new saddle sits a bit lower on its rails, so first time out I realised my saddle was a bit low. Maybe you could add an exact dimension for the adjustment in your instructions.
I will probably buy another one for my Felt Time Trial bike too. Good luck with your new product, it’s a very good one and I’m not someone who gives that sort of feedback lightly.”

“The bike is noticably quicker with the RLt”
(i) “Had another good ride today and am now getting there with the set up. I am now confident it will be really comfortable. Because of the construction it needs to be a bit higher than my R2, probably a bit further back and maybe angled slightly more forward. I am pretty happy as I have had no risk of slipping off. To date it has been comfortable over 40 miles.”
“The most comfortable road saddle I have ridden”
(ii) “The one thing that is absolutely certain is that the R2 absorbs a lot of power. The bike is noticably quicker with the RLt, I think due to power transfer. I also think you spend more time on the right part of the saddle. There was always a tendancy to move forward with an R2 on a road bike. All in all it is the most comfortable road saddle I have ridden which is great.”

“The RLt saddle helped me cope easily with the daily 125km ride”
(i) “Dear Rido: The London-Paris ride went very well although I suffered a bit as, having trained in the heat of the Costa Blanca, I was not prepared for the relative cold of the UK and Northern France. However, I made Paris in good time and shape which pleased me. The RLt saddle helped me cope easily with the daily 125km ride without any undue discomfort. I was singing its praises to my travelling companions throughout the 4 days and continue to recommend it to the cyclists I meet here.
Incidentally, to date, I have raised over £2000 for the Alzheimer’s Society.”
(ii) “I am still using the saddle daily and liking it more and more. Although it is quite a hard seat and thus you feel pressure on the areas that are in contact with it, the saving grace is that the areas that are in contact with it are the correct ones – i.e. sit bones. Thus, the delicate areas of one’s posterior are not being crushed and numbed. As a result, when one dismounts from the bike, because there is none, there is no recovery period from saddle soreness. Also, being in a fairly static position on the saddle enables increased pedal power.”

“From the initial use I’ve had – commuting into central London on a fixie – I’m very happy with it and I’m contemplating replacing the original Rido saddle that I currently have on my weekend carbon ride with an additional RLt. It’s a good-looking saddle too.”

It’s great! I am impressed that much as soon as I can get some money together I will order another for my other bike.
