Specialized launches Sitero time trial/triathlon saddle

New model similar to Adamo tri seat, but with cage on back

Specialized today launched a new triathlon/time trial saddle called the Sitero, which features a wide, snub nose, a cut-out channel and a water bottle cage on the rear.

The Sitero Pro will be sold for $225 in black with carbon rails, and the Sitero Expert with titanium rails will be $175, in black or white.

The Sitero comes with a detachable bottle cage

The saddle is designed for riders to sit further up towards the nose with the hips rotated forward. In many respects the Sitero looks like the Adamo, a saddle popular among triathletes with a snub nose and a cut-out channel that extends all the way through the front of the saddle.

The water bottle cage is removable, and a hook for racking the bike in transition can be put on instead. The underside of the saddle nose also works as a hook for transition.

The Sitero Pro weighs 289g with the cage.

The Stiero is 24cm long (compared to 27cm for most road saddles), about 60mm wide at the nose and steadily widening to a maximum of 145mm.
