Prologo Vertigo Max £84.99

Bags of support from new dirt saddle

BikeRadar score4.5/5

The Vertigo Max is a brand new Prologo model for 2008, and is designed to attract the same buyers as the Fizik Gobi XM and the SDG Bel Air – that is, riders who want a ‘real’ seat to sit on, and not a leather-covered, butt-splitting cap for their seat post.

The Vertigo hits the mark, and we’ve enjoyed our miles on it hugely. It feels like a blend of the Bel Air and Gobi XM, and good body-hugging curves on this saddle give it a socket-like fit. Bags of support from the mid-density padding mean it absorbs impacts from the ground while still offering resilience to bottoming-out under the rider’s weight.

Titanium rails help keep weight down, and we think this saddle will prove to be a popular buy this year – it’s a grower.
