Body Geometry products are ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to increase performance, improve comfort, and reduce your chance of injury. No matter your riding style, the contact points between the bike and body can present a unique set of challenges. All Body Geometry equipment, however, offers personalized solutions that optimize your performance and comfort. Our passionate group of physicians, engineers, and athletes create designs that are rooted in science and approved as Body Geometry, so you can be one with your bike.
Why Body Geometry?
Identify a problem, solve it through design, validate it with science—this is Body Geometry. And while we take comfort for granted today, before Body Geometry, bike ergonomics had hardly changed for over a century. Saddles were notoriously uncomfortable, and as research showed in the ‘90s, they were causing actual medical issues. Scarring, numbness, restricted blood flow—all problems to solve. So, solve we did. We assembled a group of medical professionals and developed the first Body Geometry saddle in 1997. This saddle stands as the pivot point for the bike industry, and the Ergonomically Designed and Scientifically Tested ethos that drove the solution remains our guiding philosophy to this day.
Of course, it wasn’t long until we began implementing this science-driven approach to shoes and gloves. We made the first cycling shoes with a formed Longitudinal Arch, a Varus Wedge, and metatarsal support, and their proliferation has effectively eliminated hot spots and numbness, increased power output, and greatly reduced the chance of knee injury. And with gloves, we targeted hand numbness and fatigue by innovating ways to relive pressure from the ulnar nerve.
We’re far from finished. Body Geometry is always evolving and finding new ways of delivering you the best possible equipment for your ride.
