How much dirt are you currently accumulating under the saddle on your ROAD bike?

For myself: Essentially none.

Not so sure when the printed matrix is glued on the top.

So make a honeycomb or lattice with a cover on it. Foam isn't the end-all of construction material.

I think the printed thing will be placed on top of the carbon shell so that should protect it from the dirt.

i think the OP means that since the printed material has holes in it, dirt and grime can accumulate overtime
there is a secret tool that is mentioned earlier but seems hard to find though, the legendary garden hose :D

Are you guys talking about the covered or the un-covered variety ?

If the latter, then you have a likely bigger problem of those chewing up your precious bibs .

Ofcourse they will be a dirt magnet. Question is if they also will be wearing bib shorts when friction is a fact.
