Ere Research CEO Piet van der Velde raced professionally in the ‘90s before moving into product design and management, with a concentration on performance ergonomics and saddle design. His behind the scenes experience spans across road and mountain product lines, with involvement in some of the first functional electronic shifting mechanisms with Browning, and one of the earliest production single speed mountain bikes with Cannondale before moving on towards aerodynamic component design with Oval Concepts and Jordan Formula 1 team, then moving into saddles with Velo, and Prologo. The past decade has seen Piet as a product manager of Specialized saddles & hardgoods and then Selle Italia & Selle San Marco saddles, with hundreds of thousands of bicycle saddles and other components having gone across his desk before entering the world. More than likely one of your current or former bikes has a saddle designed at Piet's workstation.
