The anatomical shape of the rear and the pressure relief channel, designed to avoid numbness and pain on the uneven grounds, are present as in the 132mm wide Artax GL.
Another feature in common with the two saddles is the square shape of the front padding, that ensures improved support when pedalling in the "seat tip" sitting position.
One of the problems that may occur with a wide saddle is that the dimension of the saddle can hinder the free movement of the hip joint, with consequences for the comfort and the effectiveness of the pedal stroke. We’ve overcome this inconvenience shaping the silhouette of the saddle so that no hindrance is created to the movement of the joint and leg.
The proprietary RLS system allows the saddle cover to be easily replaced without having to change the base. By the way, the coupled double bases have turned out to offer a better absorption of the vertical vibrations transmitted by the ground. The differential section rail is made of UD carbon fibre. The shell is built using LCF (Long Carbon Fibres) technology, which makes the saddle just rigid enough and non-deformable over time.
The padding is made of Eva, a very light material, made thicker in the most delicate support points to maximise comfort even on bumpy terrain, for those who prefer a more upright sitting position and those who often use the lower part of the handlebars. Coating: non-slip cover material, which is just as effective when wet.
