Specialized Power Expert Mimic Womens Saddle

No reviews

With our patented design, MIMIC technology helps create a saddle that perfectly adapts to your body to give you the support you need.

Review

A saddle often recommended by physios, due to its width options and gel padding on the nose of the saddle – which is also shorter than your traditional saddle noses. Women’s physiology can make it very hard to share a unisex or male saddle for some, although everyone is different. With that in mind Specialized produced their Power Expert Mimic Women’s specific saddle. 

The Specialized Expert Mimic adapts to the way you sit on the saddle and comes in three different widths. It’s suggested to be best for those with a more upright position due to the lack of cutout.


Pros

  • Womens specific
  • MIMIC technology providing multi-layered materials to maintain equilibrium and minimise swelling in sensitive soft tissue
  • Body geometry to ensure blood flow to sensitive arteries 
  • Suited to a more upright position

Cons

  • Not particularly cheap as you’re paying for a saddle at the forefront of research 
  • Not well suited if you ride in a more aero position 
  • The gel padding can be uncomfortable for some who get on better with a cutout saddle

Verdict

The Specialized Mimic is at the forefront of research into women’s specific saddles, the research is extensive and it will never be easy to provide a saddle that fits all. This saddle is not one we’d recommend for someone who sits rolled forward or has an aggressive position due to the lack of cutout, it can cause pressure on longer rides.
