COBB – Randee
You don’t have to be on the start list for Paris-Brest-Paris to appreciate the design of the all-new Randee, although it would be a great choice given that it was designed exclusively for endurance and high mileage cyclists. John Cobb spent two years refining this seat to ensure long-duration comfort and relief. It’s the second offering in the JOF lineup.
Randee is short for randonneuring, a type of long-distance event where the riding is spirited and stopping for rest is the last resort. If you routinely ride Gran Fondos, fast centuries, or even longer rides on the weekends, this seat allows you to concentrate on exactly that – riding hard, fast miles. Do it in comfort with the Randee.
Tips from our Retul bike fitter:
This is one of the saddles that I would trial during a retul bike fit if the client has issues with soft tissue pressure and they also seem to have a wider pelvis structure. The unisex Cobb Randee saddle seems to be particularly successful with female cyclists as both a road bike saddle and a time trial saddle. The large circular cut out provides significant pressure relief in the road bike position for women struggling to find a saddle that reduces pressure on their soft tissues. The channel through the nose region of the saddle provides the same pressure relief in the triathlon and time trial positions. The grooved region allows the pelvis to rotate forward without crushing any soft tissue. The clever design of the Cobb Cycling Randee JOF makes it an option for both road cycling and triathlon/time trial.
