Why This Strap?During the spring and summer of 2013 I demoed the Rivet Independence saddle and found my sit bones were in hog heaven — but on longer rides, 150 miles or longer (300km), I found that my soft tissue area was not so comfortable. I use aerobars, and on some rides, use them frequently. I ride a lot ot ride in very small groups it seems (not by choice). I made up a prototype and used it on a 400km brevet (250 miles) and found I was more comfortable with, than without this add-on.
Constructed of two 38mm (1-1/2") wide nylon webbing, measuring only .40mm thick, or about the same thickness as two layers of electrical tape.
