Specialized Releases Phenom MIMIC Saddle

Specialized introduced an update to its mountain bike saddle line today with the addition of the Phenom MIMIC saddle. For those familiar with the Specialized saddle line, you’ll recognize the Phenom as its race platform mountain bike saddle. This new edition adds MIMIC technology and shortens the nose of the saddle to create a ride similar to the Specialized Power with an added 3mm to the nose. Though the New Phenom MIMIC is billed as a women’s saddle – most riders will tell you, MIMIC technology is added comfort with similar pedaling sensations of the non-MIMIC versions of the saddle. You’ll notice many MIMIC saddles under riders in both the World Tour and long-distance gravel events because of its added comfort.

The Phenom Expert was designed for comfort and strength over long days on the road or trail. It features a carbon-reinforced shell with outer-edges that conform to your body for a near-custom fit. The Phenom MIMIC is available in Expert and Comp models currently. The Expert has lightweight hollow titanium rails for lightweight durability while the Comp had rugged hollow Cro-Mo rails. Like the Phenom Pro, the new Phenom MIMIC has a medium-density foam, Specialized Level II Padding for ample support and comfort. Likewise, at the tail, you’ll find the Phenom hallmarks of a rounded, anti-snag design, and throughout the saddle, an expertly-tuned construction that provides the ideal degree of both stiffness and efficiency.
