The BiSaddle story begins with inventor James Bombardier. Jim invented and patented the original BiSaddle that changed the lives of thousands of cyclists by addressing a key problem with bike saddles.
Before the BiSaddle design, traditional saddles would put pressure on the body presenting serious health and vitality risks for both men and women, especially those who live to ride.
His BiSaddle solved these problems, and the media praised the innovation after several medical and scientific studies confirmed the health benefits.
And, Jim may have come up with the DaVinci BiSaddle if he hadn’t been struck by a truck while cycling in 2006. In 2013, Jim’s patent attorney connected him with me, Jon Petty, because I was looking for a cause.
At first glace I was intrigued...”what is THIS?” I wondered.
It wasn’t until I read the numerous testimonials that I knew
I had found the cause I was seeking. BiSaddle prevented injury and gave people back their lives; however, the look of the design meant that it was the saddle of last resort.
I bought the company and set a new imperative: Make an elegant saddle with all the benefits of the original and with a look that would turn heads and put envy into the hearts when other cyclists saw it.
After two years of working closely with biking enthusiasts
and pros, the BiSaddle DaVinci accomplished these goals and more.
