Australian saddle design insures perfect posture even when you lean forward to work. Anatomical seat contour stabilizes the pelvis for effortless postural control. With backrest. Sizes for adults and children.


The Bambach Saddle Seat is more anatomically contoured than other saddle seats. Deeply sculpted front pommel and rear cantel stabilize your pelvis in an upright orientation for healthy spinal posture. The down-side of the anatomical contour is that it either fits you like a glove (comfortable) or it doesn't (uncomfortable). If it fits you, we recommend it.

The contoured backrest is optional and usually not needed by able-bodied people, since the saddle supports an upright posture naturally without a backrest. We recommend the backrest for people who become easily fatigued, who have poor balance, are very weak, or who work for prolonged periods in static postures (e.g., a microsurgeon).

Saddle size

Small Bambach Saddle Small
  • For young children and very small adults

Medium Bambach Saddle Medium
  • The most popular saddle size. Fits most adults and teens.

Cutaway Bambach Saddle Narrow
  • Same fit as the medium seat, but more narrow in the front to allow sitting with the knees closer together (i.e., reduced hip abduction).
  • For people with stiff hips or hip abnormalities.
  • Some men report that the Narrow Saddle offers more room for their "privates."

Large Bambach Saddle Large
  • Features a longer, flatter front pommel with a wider seat in the rear. Longer front-to-back and wider in the rear than the Standard Saddle, however hip abduction (leg spread) is the same in both.
  • The introduction of the large seat was the result of feedback from male customers. While predominately used by men, it is also preferred by larger framed women and those with muscular or thicker thighs and buttocks.

Exceptions: People with abnormal hip joint anatomy, fracture, surgery, or joint replacement may need a narrower or smaller saddle than recommended.
