Duopower born from a ban; that of a renowned urologist from Barcelona on a cyclist. The reason: literally could not sit on the saddle.
Although totally demoralized, the cyclist insisted on subsequent visits to ask what he could do to return to hop on a bike . The answer was very simple: “by sitting on a no-nose saddle that does not lean on the perineum.” This simple comment was the beginning, the spark plugged the wick, and from which they began to create the first ideas in mind.
But we had to carry out and capture those ideas, so he helped Eduardo Elizalde, a specialist in product development, besides the urologist who was treating him, and a multidisciplinary team. After much trial, effort, and prototypes tested in the circuit of the Olympic Channel of Castelldefels (Spain), you reach the current design.
Not quite curious how they found, Eduardo Elizalde and the factory with the capacity and know-how to manufacture the saddles technology. They met at a fair for components for shoes, Eduardo took in one hand an anatomical insole, and with the other put the rails below , telling the Alicante manufacturer in front of him : “If you can make insoles, you can also make bike saddles ” . Like this manufacturing of Duopower saddles started in Spain .
Time has proved right to the concept and design of Duopower. When years later the first study was done by the Ministry of Public Health of the United States on how a saddle had to be to avoid the physical damages that produce traditional saddles, in this stud , while confirming the serious effects of saddles tip on the health of men and women, a saddle to avoid all these problems was designed, to coincide in exactly the same form that is the Duopower .
Today , Duopower not cease in its efforts to innovate year after year , and to open markets worldwide .
By the way !: Our cyclist is on his bike again. 🙂
