The Italian made Koobi 232 K with chromoly steel rails is triathlon specific saddle made of mixed density foam, making it ideal for long or short distance racing. Soft over high density foams means this saddle works well for most body weights, and the large relief groove makes for a comfortable ride in both the aero and upright position. We've found the 232 K to be a great saddle for riders new to riding triathlon bikes.
The overall construction is designed to evenly distribute pressure without loading pressure onto the center of your pelvis. The nose of the 232 K falls away near the tip, preventing point pressure when riding in the aero position. Additionally, the nose has a subtle built-in hook to simplify racking your bike in transition zone.
Compared to other triathlon specific saddles, the Koobi is short in length (232mm), and relatively narrow in width. This saddle often works well for athletes who feel the ISM saddles are too wide in the nose.
We've found initially setting the Koobi saddles up so that the rails are parallel to the ground is a good starting point. This will result in the saddle being slightly angled down. Adjust the tilt as necessary from here to find your personal comfort.
