Specialized Body Geometry

Specialized BG products are scientifically developed and proven to improve performance and comfort for a better ride.

Cycling is a healthy, efficient and environmentally friendly form of exercise and transportation. These are all positive aspects and genuine reasons for choosing cycling as an activity.  However the human body was designed for walking, running and jumping – it was not built for pedalling, holding handlebars or sitting on the saddle.  Specialized Body Geometry products are scientifically developed and medically tested to improve the way your body connects with your bike at the three points of contact; your hands, seat and feet.

We stock a full range of Specialized Body Geometry shoes, saddles and gloves. See the videos below for more information.
