The all-new 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 a 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.
John Cobb spent over two years developing the all new cobb cycling Randee saddle. “Randee” is short for Randanneur, designed for long distance riders, riders that goes out and ride several hundred miles over a weekend and Gran Fondo riders that like to put in hard fast miles. This short nosed saddle uses a new base design and new material selections. This gives the saddle unmatched adjustability and a wide 155mm rear support area. The nose is only 48mm wide so that as the rider positions themselves “just off the front” on this seat, there is no chaffing but plenty of pressure relief and support. Lightweight at 306gr. especially compared to the favorite “leather” saddles, this new saddle has a deep curved rear that makes it be a great choice for Ironman racing or all day touring.
