The elastomer is a type of rubber, which, thanks to its internal structure and special composition, has particular characteristics that make it very different from traditional elastomers.

The main property of the material is its viscoelasticity, which makes it highly effective at reducing and absorbing vibrations.

This cushioning function works to prevent the transmission of the harmful vibrations generated as the sitting of the rider into his saddle.



The Martindale is a unit for quantifying the abrasion resistance of textiles, especially when used for upholstery : The higher the value, the more resistant the material is to abrasion. The national German textile institute specifies a minimum requirement for various applications, and here are some examples:
Private Use 10.000 (soft) 15.000 (Hard)
Office Use 25.000 (soft) 35.000 (Hard)
