Kontact Bicycle Components is based on the simple concept of questioning the status quo.
Joshua Cohen PT, MS, an experienced cyclist and physical therapist with a Master’s degree in biomechanics, heard constant complaints about bicycle seats from other riders and decided to study if the current “ergonomic” saddles really were beneficial. After completing a Master’s thesis at UNC Chapel Hill on male ergonomic bicycle seat design, it was clear that the current saddles were not helpful, and could even have a negative impact on blood flow. Those finding were later published in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness. Joshua then wrote Finding the Perfect Bicycle Seat, which details what he had discovered from his studies of saddle designs. Based on years of study in anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, Joshua developed an improved design that had significant performance improvements in objective testing.
That passion to research, innovate, and redefine cyclists’ expectations drives us at Kontact to deliver cutting edge products to improve your performance, health, and comfort.
