Item: ISM Adamo Breakaway Saddle
Details: New for 2010 is the ISM Adamo Breakaway Saddle which uses a design that breaks away from the norm in order to offer more comfort for you, especially when you find yourself bent over in your drops / aero bars. The ISM Adamo Breakaway Saddle has a sizeable cutout that relieves the pressure put on the perineal artery by many of today's typical racing saddles. The saddle features the same bio-mechanic design and shape of the Adamo Podium but ISM added more foam padding and gel to soften the ride. It has lightweight titanium rails with a 65mm flat section to offer great fore and aft adjustability.
ISM has been known to the multi-sport crowd for a few years now and has been gaining popularity as the word spreads. Some of the pro athletes using ISM saddles include: Bella Bayliss, Laura Bennett, Hillary Biscay, Sarah Haskins, Joanna Lawn, Samantha McGlone, Andy Potts, Raynard Tissink, and Patrick Vernay.
