Gipiemme Stealth 2000 saddle review

The first thing we noticed out of the rather stylish metal tin was the lack of anything unnecessary on the Stealth 2000. It's a simple, no messing, lightweight saddle for those who want to save weight.

The first thing we noticed out of the rather stylish metal tin was the lack of anything unnecessary on the Stealth 2000. It’s a simple, no messing, lightweight saddle for those who want to save weight. Gipiemme’s Italian made Stealth 2000 also lives up to its name in terms of aesthetics and styling with its sleek black finish.

It has a 100 per cent carbon fibre shell that offers a little give when riding so it’s not super solid like some early carbon saddles. For extra comfort Gipiemme has added a thin gel and fabric top. This certainly helps, especially for longer days on the road. The undercarriage is a simple affair with two titanium rails iveted to the carbon shell. Naturally these keep the weight down while holding the saddle perfectly in place. The shape is pretty standard with a cutaway to the rear. The saddle is 273mm long and only comes in a 134mm width – unlike some brands which are available in different width fittings to get the perfect sitting bone/saddle compatibility. As with any saddle, we suggest you try before you buy. As for weight, it tips the scales at a mere 147g.

The Stealth 2000 is a quality lightweight Italian made saddle, but you do pay a premium for this – though we’re sure this won’t put off closet weight weenies with deep pockets.
