The Sport originated as a new take on the Touring model. It is intended for upright bikes, hybrids, or even mountain biking on light trails. Compared to the Touring, it features a slightly narrower profile, along with foam and gel padding. Great for use with padded bike shorts, or regular everyday clothing.
Like all ISM saddles, the Sport is nose-less and designed to remove pressure from soft tissue, ensuring maximum blood flow, no genital numbness, and a healthier, more enjoyable ride.

1. ISM has eliminated the "nose" area of the seat, so the stools must be installed further back than traditional seats - 5 to 8 centimetres further back. If the saddle seems too wide at the front, move it further back. The setback must be measured with a tape measure from the front of the saddle to a static object such as the handlebars of the bike.
2. Due to the way your pelvis rests on ISM stools, they should be placed slightly lower than traditional stools - about 1/4", or 5 mm. This should be measured from the top of the saddle to the ground, using a tape measure. By lowering the ISM saddle, you will keep your original size.
3. Adjust the seat angle. Most cyclists prefer ISM seats with the rails parallel to the ground or with a very slight downward angle (1 - 2 degrees). Make sure that all bolts are tightened according to the manufacturer's specifications and that the bike is in good working order. If in doubt, consult a qualified professional mechanic.
