Lightweight well-shaped all rounder with guaranteed comfort

This might look like a traditional old-skool saddle, but under the smooth synthetic leather cover sits a full carbon fibre shell. Multi layer flex control and a bulged centre pocket for cod comfort make it an instantly comfortable saddle with upswept V-shaped back to keep you steady on climbs.

A drooped nose makes it fundament friendly when you’re balanced on the tip too, and the smooth surface makes it easy to move around on. In fact, Bontrager are so sure you’ll find it comfy, that its ‘Unconditional Comfort Guarantee’ means if you still don’t like it after 30 days, then you can get a complete refund.

While the snag and nip free shape and full Kevlar reinforced rear make it an excellent trail pew, titanium rails and full carbon shell keep weight below the 200g mark, so it won’t disturb racers’ dietary requirements either. That embroidery on the flanks doesn’t stay pretty or un-fluffy long in UK conditions, though. Also available in a women’s FIT version.
