High tech, durable racing saddle

All new construction, materials and design for the Aspide FX +Open. The Aspide has had a a cult following for many years,it is said once riders have transitioned over to the legendary Aspide shape saddle shopping simply stops right there. A base of of Carbon Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) is supportive and allows controlled flex for a comfortable fit with even pressure distribution. The open design relieves pressure, especially when deep in the drops and the slightly flared rear end allows for effective and positive power transfer, this essentially creates a shape that is more anatomically friendly to your pelvis once rotated forward. Comparable narrow at only 131mm for the rear waist, it is well suited to strong riders that prefer a narrow fitting saddle - our sit bones actually narrow as the pelvis is tilted forward. The nose is mildy dropped with a very subtle channel for further pressure relief. Minimal 120grams is respectable for a fully featured padded saddle - This was achieved with the newly developed PEBAX foam. The new PEBAX foam is light, retains it's shape over time and provides excellent vibration dampening combined with the CFRP hull this saddle is very comfortable - short or all day long epics and has the opportunity to suit many riders anatomy.

Long 60mm rails allow excellent fore and aft adjustment while still maintaing the shock absorbing properties, the rails also use the new Selle San Marco DNA rails which cross over at the most critical point dispersing pressure and force evenly through the saddle rails, it delicately balances flex and outright shell stiffness which was one of the requisites of Selle San Marco's Pro Athletes.
