This Bicycle Saddle Shifts with You When You Need to Lean Forward

The Darwin Bicycle saddle is what makes this bike an intriguing piece for enthusiastic cyclists -- it lets cyclists shift their position while riding without actually getting off the saddle. When cyclists need to climb an uphill route or spring at full speed, they have to get off the saddle and shift their weight forward. This is a movement that is necessary with regular bicycles, but is also inefficient.

The Darwin Bicycle features a folding frame that automatically moves the bicycle saddle wherever the cyclist moves their body weight so that they're always seated. By staying in the saddle, despite riding in what would normally be an off-saddle position, cyclists can exercise better control, don't waste as much energy with side-to-side movements and are able to deliver more torque to the pedals.
