Italy's Repente launches new line of Prime saddles

Published August 30, 2021

VENETO, Italy (BRAIN) — Repente has updated its Prime 2.0 saddle to add the Prime 3.0 - 142, a wider saddle that complements its 132mm version.

"The shape of the rear of the saddle has been designed to provide a uniform contact area for customers who require this saddle size. Repente's R&D has focussed on avoiding any hindrance to the free motion of the hip joint during the pedal downstroke, creating leverage for the cyclist in terms of comfort and thrust effectiveness," the company said.

The central anatomical channel has been made wider on the new saddle, as well. The saddle rails are made of T700 unidirectional carbon fiber and the material used for the supporting structure of the saddle is PA12 polyurethane, reinforced with long carbon fibers. The saddle also features Repente's RLS cover replacement feature.

"The thickness of the padding layer has been increased throughout the surface of the saddle, in consideration of the fact that the 142mm width size is mainly used by cyclists with an above-average build. To ensure a more comfortable sitting position both on uneven ground and over long distances, EVA material, highly suitable for its top lightness and shock absorption properties, has been used for the padding," the company said.

The new saddle weighs 160 grams and retails for 154 euros (about $180).
