Joystick is now a sponsor for the Soecialized Gravity Racing team, and they were showing off an enhanced range of saddles from £44.99 all the way up to £129.99. They’re arranged over two shapes (broadly) – the Analogue saddles are shorter and wider, and the Binary ones are longer and narrower.

More details from Haven.
Lids are £140, and MIPS ones are £170. There’s a carbon MIPS one, too, in black and white, for £200.

And finally, I present to you the roll-on anti-chafing Butt Shield!
