Italians offer detachable bicycle saddle to protect against thieves and vandals
The bicycle perfectly combines transportation, entertainment and competent physical exertion in one subject, and many people enjoy using it - especially in good weather. There are thousands of models, and hundreds of thousands of accessories, and the better the components are, the more pleasant your trip will be.
One problem - the better the accessories, the more expensive they are, and the more offensive it is when they return to the parking lot to find out that they have completely stolen the whole thing, or have damaged (or twisted) some of its parts. For example, a soft and easily damaged saddle.
The Italian manufacturer of bicycle saddles Selle Royal has invented a detachable Ta + Too saddle to resist vandals and thieves. The upper part, if necessary, can be removed and carried away. The saddle weighs about 500 grams, it is made of soft polyurethane, thanks to which it takes the shape of a body and is well absorbed. For aesthetes, there are a dozen different saddle color options. Additionally, it is possible to install a handle on the back of the saddle to facilitate carrying the bike.
“We wanted to create a solution for those who don’t want to invest in a high-quality product because they are afraid that it will be stolen or damaged,” said Roberto Bucci, a company spokesman. Saddle cost € 70, with handle € 80.
