A new project, after many many hours in SolidWorks, finaly finished! Also the moulds are designed and next step is to make them on CNC,...
I made it together with a friend of mine (www.gorjupdesign.si
), a professional designer who works also for different companies, he's a real master of SolidWorks. Here osme photos during the SolidWorks work:
My aim for this saddle is to make it as light as possible and of course more comfortable than my one piece seatpost/saddle combos. The saddle has an unique design of the saddle rails - the saddle will be made in 2 steps (bonding the saddle rails and saddle shell), without any extra reinforcements between the saddle shell and saddle rails.
So here it is:
I think that I already mentined - we had a leather company in our family, so I'll be able to make some leather work again and cover some saddles,...as you can see the "bridge" on the back side of the saddle would be visible also if I cover the complete saddle with leather...we'll see, first I have to get the moulds and then make some first prototype saddles, can't wait! I'll keep you updated.
Otherwise I'm very busy with my university these days, but I'll soon have some more news, the ultralight combo is almost finished..
