PRO Athertons Downhill saddle - in brief $77.95

DH saddle with Kevlar wear patches

BikeRadar score 3.5/5

Although aimed primarily at downhill use, the new Atherton saddle is really more of an all-rounder. 

Hollow titanium rails keep the weight down, while the printed leather-like microfibre top covers strategically placed padding that’s well shaped and sufficient to ride long trail loops without even a hint of discomfort. 

The Kevlar reinforced wear patches on the nose and wings are a worthy inclusion, with no signs of wear after a heavy winter of use, other than the fading of the bright graphics – something we’re not too disappointed about. The shape and width mean it won’t get in your way if you do need to get over the back.
