Cadex Boost saddle review

The Cadex Boost saddle sits in Giant's performance component range, designed for those who like aggressive riding

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Cadex Boost saddle is designed to be aggressive, but with the upward curve at the rear there's not much wiggle room, meaning you'll have to hold one position without much relief. I suspect how much you like this saddle depends on how flexible you are.

Reasons to buy

  • +

Reasons to avoid

Anyone who has bought a Giant bike will be well aware that the brand already makes components, including wheels, tyres and saddles. So where does Cadex sit? Well, Cadex is Giant's new performance range of components, design to furnish the CCC team, and now us lucky consumers, with performance products.

Cadex represents the cutting edge of Giant's component know-how and that shows itself in the Cadex Boost saddle in many ways. For starters, it features an integrated rail design and a carbon composite frame and this two-piece frame is designed to be stiffer than a standard saddle build.
