Description

I’m selling this superb ISM Adamo time trial / triathlon saddle. It’s been very little used, as it doesn’t suit my very narrow physique, so it’s in near perfect condition and perfectly clean. I hope that you will be able to see that in the photos.

I believe ISM stopped making this model in December 2015 and replaced it with the PS 1.0, both of which retail at about $224 according to ISM’s website. Evans Cycles used to sell this model at £132 and now sells the replacement PS 1.0 at £185. Mine is really light and I believe the rails are titanium alloy.

The saddle is available for collection in the Cambridge area, but I would also be willing to post it, providing the buyer pays upfront, including the costs for whichever method of postage is required.

Here’s the blurb about it:

The ISM Adamo Time Trail Saddle was introduced in 2011 and is all about performance. ISM's winning design allows for increased hip rotation, thus decreasing a rider's aerodynamic drag and opens the diaphragm for easier breathing. Riders report an increase in wattage due to the more aggressive positioning. Sloped front arms provide extra relief to the superficial perineal space. From the start gate to the finish line, you will slice through the competition.

Ideal Saddle Modification is the brainchild of Steve Toll, an avid cyclist and swimmer living in Tampa, Florida. In the winter of 1997, following yet another painful bike ride with his wife, Laura, Steve sketched out a design for a seat he thought could eliminate, or at least reduce, the discomfort most riders experience on a traditional bike saddle. By 1999, with some assistance from his family, the concept was patented. That patent marks a significant milestone for an industry that hasn't seen a major saddle change in years. Over the years, ISM's seats have helped propel Ironman wins, Olympic medals, Road Racing podium appearances, and countless age group victories. Pros and amateurs alike are finding riding and competing enjoyable again due in large part to riding the world's most comfortable bike seat.

ISM (Innovative Saddle Makers) saddles are a revolution within the cycling industry. Their patented, nose-less design provides support for the pubic bones and takes pressure away from the soft tissue area. The result is no loss of blood flow, no numbness and ultimately, less pain and more comfort.

The Adamo Time Trial saddle is used mainly in time trial and triathlon. In keeping with the other shorter, performance saddles in the range, the rear slopes slightly upwards. This provides your hips with outstanding support when you are in an aero tuck or an aggressive road riding position. If you like to remain in one position throughout your ride, the Adamo Time Trial is perfect for you.

As a UCI legal saddle, the Adamo Time Trial can be used in road races and time trials at all levels.

Independent research shows that traditional saddles don't give enough support to the pubic bones. As a result, they cause pressure in that area of soft tissue that contains many nerves and arteries. This pressure can result in a reduction in blood flow, numbness and pain. The shorter, nose-less design of ISM saddles, coupled with the cut away front area, shift pressure back to the sit bones and relieve this pressure.

Unlike many saddle manufacturers, ISM does not have gender specific models. Their saddles are designed to relieve pressure and improve comfort for both men and women alike.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to ask any questions or for additional photos.
