Pro Turnix carbon 132 saddle - in brief review

Comfortable and impressively light

BikeRadar score3/5Find prices on Bicycle Blue Book

The Pro Turnix saddle is impressively light for its price – plenty of this is down to the combination of carbon rails and carbon-reinforced hull.

On top, the multi-density padding – running from firm at the rear to soft at the front – adds comfort, as does the minimal pressure relief channel through the saddle's midsection.

The ridged base offers little in the way of flex, meaning the overall ride quality is somewhat firm. The quality of the padding, however, goes some way to providing the comfort required.

Slim dimensions and a long narrow nose make shifting around the Turnix nice and easy – all in all it's a top quality, impressively low-weight race saddle, and at a decent price too.
