FAQ

What saddle brands/models do the Aeroclams Fit?

The Aeroclam is designed to be as Universal as possible and to date, between the P1 and P2 Aeroclams, they fit 196 bike seat brands and models. The underside of the vast majority of saddles are very similar, and right across saddle brands & models the P1 and P2 often fit as well as each other.

Generally though, the flatter the bottom profile of the saddle the more likely the P2 Aeroclam is the best fit. The more Concave the bottom profile of the saddle, the more likely the P1 Aeroclam will fit. See the list of saddles below that are known to fit either the P1 or P2. Also see imagery of difference between the P1 and P2 Aeroclams.

The only "Average' Review we ever got was by Bike Radar way back when we sent them the very first Small only P1 to Review. They slammed us on capacity. Working on a Medium sized Bottom Section to complete and add to the Small & Large Bottoms that swap out in 10 seconds.

What is the difference between the Aeroclam P1 & P2?

The difference between the P1 & P2 Aeroclam is the contour on the top edge of the top section of the Aeroclam.

While the P1 fits more saddle brands and models, the P2 fits 95% of the Selle Italia range but also some Specialized and Fabric saddles etc. So there is a bit of crossover between the P1 and P2 with both models fitting some saddles as nice as each other.

But, there are certain saddles that fit only the P1 or P2 Aeroclams.

Capacity is exactly the same and all parts interchange.

 

Is the Aeroclam Waterproof?

In normal and even extreme weather situations the Aeroclam will keep content dry.

During testing, the latch area was blasted with a high pressure hose and did let a trickle of water run down the inside of the clam and straight out the drain holes. The Aeroclam was designed to be watertight, and it was designed with ample drainage as well as rail impressions for the multitool to sit on preventing the tool from getting wet should water ever enter the clam somehow.

Will the latch be up to the job of a zipper?

The latch is more than up to the job of the zipper. It is made of very durable rubber that has excellent UV qualities.

The latch eyelets also have to be stretched over the plastic buttons with some resistance so will not pop undone in motion as long as they are secured/seated properly in the first place. When testing the durability of the rubber eyelets I personally slid the latch over the plastic buttons over 500 times. This equates to 250 punctures and the rubber compound held it’s composition perfectly.

If by some chance one of the eyelets isn’t seated correctly and comes off, the other eyelet will hold the content from falling onto the road. The amount of resistance needed to slide the latch eyelet over the plastic button is manageable and very quick compared to using a zipper.

If, for some reason the latch does eventually fail, it can be bought as a separate component and easily fitted by anyone. When your zipper fails, you buy a new saddle bag.

Will the contents rattle in the hard shell?

If the content is compressed packed as per instructions with the supplied rubber sleeve over the CO2 canister, there is no rattling.

When I designed the clam we designed it around the use of the medium inflators on the market, like the Lezyne inflator.

If you use smaller sized inflators, it’s recommended to slide a small piece of old tube over the inflator or use something to take up the extra space in that area like; small piece of rolled plastic lunchwrap, bubblewrap, cloth or latex glove.

Saddles the Aeroclams fit:

These saddles listed below are only the saddles we know that fit. There will be many more that fit perfectly we’ve not yet fitted to.

FIZIK Aronie - Aeroclam fit

Top image is a P2 Aeroclam that was fitted to a Fizik Arione saddle. The owner shaved back the original Fizik mounting system on the underside. As a result managed a nicer and closer fit to the saddle.
The Fizik mounting system is rarely used and shaving it back does not effect the strength of the saddle, so a modification worth considering.

The Aeroclams fit the Arione saddles and mounts securely + performs perfectly as seen on the second image on Canyon cycle.

There is no rider/bodily contact whatsoever.

We have plenty of cyclists use the Aeroclams on their Arione saddles and love the combination.

The only issue is an aesthetic one as the Arione tappers toward the rear of the saddle and the Aeroclam overlaps slightly being designed for conventional saddles [Third Image].

A small pointer, but worth mentioning.

Massively Expensive to make the Aeroclams but if I get enough enquiries about a custom Aeroclam specifically for the FIZIK Aronie Saddle, I'll make one depending if the volumes are there.

Can you please Register Your Interest with an Email? All you need to do is Type FIZIK Arione in the title -  info@cyckit.com
