Who We Are

Gelu Carbon Creation is a company that was created in 2013 by Angel Ivanof. Angel has been connected to composites industry for the last 20 years. In the early 90s, he began his nautical adventure with the manufacture and repair of numerous carbon components for racing boats, including sports such as canoeing, rowing, windsurfing and surfing. In 1999 he entered the world of advanced aeronautics composites. Angel has begun to apply the knowledge gained in this area to the world of cycling since the year 2005. He has been co-repairing all the carbon components using the advanced composites technology. The first prototype of the 100% carbon saddle was created in 2006. Gelu saddles team have been improving ever since thanks to a close collaboration with an orthopedist, an engineer as well as some of the best Portuguese athletes. Gelu Carbon Creation has always based its work on three fundamental factors: ergonomics, up-to-date technology and, more importantly, the feedback from some of the most experienced athletes.

The Founder

Gelu Carbon Creation is a Company created in 2013 by Anghel Ivanof that for 20 years now is connected to composite materials in several areas.

Member Image

Anghel Ivanof

Founder of Gelu.

My first contact with composite materials happened when I was 13 years old. I was a young canoeing athlete who spent hours in our fleet “master“ workshop amazed with all the materials impregnated in a strong polyester resin scent. I felt like that was my “laboratory” were I could to be the scientist. The next years I focused on being a full time athlete but whenever I could but all the time left I had I’de spend it making experiences using more noble materials like carbon, kevlar and epoxy resins. In 1993, I quit high competition and came to Portugal where I started a career in composite materials working in the fabric and repair of nautical vessels ( canoeing, rowing, windsurf, surf ...). In 1999 I entered the aeronautical and the advanced composite world. In 2005 I began to apply all knowledge and experience acquired to the cycling world. One year after the first 100% carbon saddle prototype was born, it weighed 120g. Years passed and after several testing models to which I gathered the experience of an orthopedist and an engineer an amazing product with great quality, comfort and reliable is born. Gelu saddles are the result of my passion for composit materials e for the sport and i have great pride sharing them with you.

What Clients Say

These are testemonials of professional athletes that have been using the Gelu saddle for some time in a competitive environment. Take a look at what they have to say...

“Were comfort meets with lightness and creates a product of choice.”

João Pereira
Client Image

"This year i will use the new seat from Gelu Carbon Creation, being all made out of carbon, its lightness of only 65gm and amazing stiffness. Despite being made totally out of carbon it gives an incredible comfort matching cushioned seats. Worthy of trying."

Rafael Domingos
Client Image

“I have been testing these all made carbon and very light saddle made by a Portuguese Brand... At 1st sight i thought i wasn't going to like it because of its stiffness. After all its ergonomics and comfort are way higher than i expected. Ill do 3h easily and when i get up its like the seat is not even there! It's just 65g witch takes a lot of weight out of the bike and from the gravity of its own. I'm a fan...”

Bruno Pais
