Quick Overview

The Fusion Zero brings a fundamentally new approach to unicycle saddle design. With a gentle curve and slim mid-section, the Fusion Zero feels like a performance bike saddle with the control of a unicycle saddle.  


Traditional curved saddles such as the Fusion Freeride, Street, and Slim support the entire sitting surface with a padded, curved profile and wider mid-section. This feels secure and stable. We still recommend curved saddles for first-time riders and riders who typically do not hold the front saddle handle.


But the curvature and wider mid-section that initially feel secure can cause increasing discomfort, chafing, and loss of blood circulation on longer rides. And most riders grip the front saddle handle most of the time for offroad or road riding, reducing the need for a radically upturned saddle nose.


The Fusion Zero features a slim mid-section, foam cutaway, and flatter profile that places your weight back on your sit bones (“ischial tuberosities”). While it takes some getting used to, this reduces the chafing and loss of blood circulation that can occur with traditionally curved unicycle saddles. The approach is similar to modern bike saddles, where the “hammock” shaped saddle has virtually disappeared in favour of flat profiles both front-to-back and side-to-side.


Unicycle riders also frequently shift from sitting to partially or completely standing while pedalling over bumps, drops and climbs. The Fusion Zero's lower front nose increase standover clearance when standing, and the slim mid-section and vertical sides reduce chafing when shifting from side to side during a climb.

Product Description

Be sure when you order this saddle that you have or order a pivotal seatpost. This saddle only works with pivotal seatposts!

Important: if you're used to a traditionally curved saddle, the Fusion Zero will feel very different at first. Expect it to take least a dozen rides to make adjustments and find your comfort zone. Consider adding a T-bar handle for all-around, road riding or cross-country muni. Many configurations are possible, but here is one of our favourite T-bar setups: ( See photo of T-bar setup above)

What you need to have this setup:
Saddle angle adjusted to second-to-highest angle position
T-bar touring handle with the following modifications:
T-bar length: shorten to 225 - 250 mm
"T" handle width: shorten to 120 mm
Slotted tube installed with the clamp towards the back
3 mm washers as spacers between the saddle base and L-shaped attachment brackets (see photo of T-Bar setup above)

Features
  • Comfortable and shock absorbent foam
  • Center cutaway to reduce pressure in critical areas
  • Stiff and strong saddle frame
  • Pivotal seatpost interface is strong, simple, highly adjustable, and eliminates exposed bolts
  • Saddle includes the pivotal bolt to secure the saddle to the seatpost
