Royalgel is an exclusive polyurethane matrix product, the only gel which doesnt break, doesnt harden, and doesnt age. Comparative pressure distribution tests prove that Royalgel padding guaranties the highest level of comfort, reducing pressure peaks by up to 80%. A better distribution of the weight on the entire surface of a saddle with Royalgel relieves both the prostatepubis area and the sit bones. Because different cycling styles ask for different positions, Mano Grips are available in three versions. The Athletic type is for the sportive oriented cyclist. It has the broadest wings or support surfaces and is meant for straight to slightly bent handlebars. Such handlebars ask for a bent over, athletic stance, but offer less natural support, because of their shape. The Moderate has less pronounced wings, but provides the necessary support for the wrists on forward bent handlebars, as often seen mounted on touring bicycles. In this category of bicycles, the sitting position is merely upright, while arms remain stretched out so that there is less body weight on the grips. For city bicycles with the characteristic curved handlebars which require an upright sitting position Selle Royal has developed the Mano Relaxed grips.
