Ere Research CEO Piet van der Velde teamed up with his former colleague and ergonomic specialist Dr. Roger Minkow, the man who revolutionized how we look at ergonomic saddles today, to create the Genus and Omnia saddles. The goal at Ere Research is to make saddle choice understandable and simple.
There are two basic shapes available, the flat-topped Genus and the curved-top Omnia which address differences in rotational flexibility. Along with these shapes are three widths (133mm, 145mm, and 157mm) and two lengths (240mm and 270mm) each. Dr. Minkow, who is known for saddle design based on medical research, is currently doing an extensive study with Dr. Michael Eisenberg, an Assistant Professor of Urology at Stanford University, on the relationship between saddle shape and the health of male and female cyclists. This study is designed to give cyclists as well as fitters a new way to decide saddle choice.
