Our friends at Portland Design Works gave us an early sneak peek at their new Dios Thronous saddle. This EVA foam saddle is reportedly waterproof and will keep your backside dry on those rainy rides we love so much here in the Northwest. Not being too familiar with EVA foam, we looked it up. According to wikipedia, ethylene-vinyl acetate is a versatile polymer sometimes known as foam rubber and used in lots of sports equipment like ski-boots, fishing rods and the Adidas Jabulani soccer ball (one of our favorite balls). It's also used in fire-safe cigarettes (there's one more reason not to smoke), and in some body bags.
