Wittkop, a subsidiary of Büchel GmbH & Co. Fahrzeugteilefabrik KG. is launching orthopaedic correct saddles under the Medicus brand name. For the development of the Medicus saddles Wittkop cooperated with orthopaedic specialist dr. med. Torsten Werlich.
“In the rear zone, the seating zone, there is a firm attenuation with dynamic weight adjustment, the middle zone contains a spring-loaded anatomic triangle recess and in the front zone, the specific shape of the nose provides security and control in the balance of the bike,” explains Dr. med. Werlich. Next to these features, Medicus saddles weigh 1/3 less compared to its ‘counterparts’.
