Material

OPTIMA, our high performance with the same sleek, low-profile design as our MODUS saddle and the greatest shock absorbing and gold standard in bike saddle comfort from our patented Reactive Padding™.  Zeta's specialized padding design for bike saddles was created by our founder to solve the complex issues of soft tissue and boney contact pressure and impact forces of the riders body against the saddle over periods of time.  Bike saddle contact pressure, friction, and the ground reaction forces coming up into the rider through the bicycle create increasing discomfort, compression of soft tissues, and potentially perineal region blood flow and/or nerve entrapment.

Available with titanium rails and full carbon fiber with carbon rails.

Designed by a doctor and avid cyclist, Zeta Saddles patented Reactive Padding™

Great saddle for old big guys

I’m old (67) and big (6’6”, 275). This was my first ride of the season. The saddle is always an issue for the first ride. I’ve been riding the same Specialized Body Geometry saddle for probably 25 years. It’s great that once you get your butt broken in, it’s a good saddle for long distance. I tried the Optima today, 156mm ti rails, and it just disappeared under me. It was so comfortable that I didn’t have to think about it the entire ride. I’ll update when I get more miles on it, but I expect it to stay comfortable.

Commuting 2 Months - OPTIMA

Patrick:
I'm happy to say the road saddle is great! Unfortunately I haven't been on a longer ride on it but I'm doing 60 to 100 miles a week in 10 mile increments commuting to and from the shop. I don't think about the saddle much and that's a good thing. It's one of the best saddles I've used to date. I find that with any saddle I've used in the past there's a point where I end up switching to another preferred saddle before doing the reverse ad infinitum, sometimes mixing in a new saddle. I think I did get maybe a 25 miler in at some point and again, not spending any notable time thinking about my saddle is a welcome change. I did find that one of my cycling shorts is less comfortable on the Zeta saddle than previous saddles. Presumably a shape or consistency of the foam combined with the chamois design? It's a denser chamois.

Trail Rides

My trail rides are so much more enjoyable now with my ZETA OPTIMA saddle! To say it’s a lot more comfortable is only part of the story. It actually conforms to my body, my pelvic sit bones sink into the padding but, do not bottom out and feel the hard sit-bone pressure felt on all previous saddles. You can feel the shock absorbing padding working as you ride. Love the sleek, low-profile design too!

Optima

My new OPTIMA saddle by Zeta Saddles is absolutely the most comfortable saddle ever made! I can’t believe how comfortable it is. There’s such a huge difference in comfort level and performance. Zeta’s Reactive Padding™ absorbs all the bumps and vibrations, and doesn’t have that increasing sense of hard contact pressure and discomfort I’m so used to with my previous saddles. 5-Stars!

Optima for Mountain Bike!

Wanted to know how your saddle feels. Over the last few weeks, since I put your saddle on my mountain bike, I have been on 15 rides for about 230 miles.

After I put the saddle on, (which was easy, with the open top to the saddle), the moment I sat on the saddle I could feel the comfort. During my rides, (road several mountain bike trails), I noticed the design did help protect tissue in my groin and sit bone. I have had 10 different saddles on various mountain bikes; the Zeta is by far the most comfortable padding and performance with the titanium rails I have ridden on.
