The features in the Astute Skylite 3.0 VT Nylon/Carbon provide a very comfortable saddle for longer races that require a race level, lightweight cycling seat. The flat seat is comfortable to ride a road bike on long rides that may have a few punches of high intensity mixed into the ride. The two pads between the carbon rail and the shells absorb vibrations by 20%. The two shells include, the inner shell made of 15% carbon-fiber reinforced nylon and the outer shell made of nylon with Soft Shell finish. These shells come in a U shape that relieves pressure in the perineal area to make sure a rider stays comfortable. The cut-out center eliminates pressure peaks in the pelvic area. Body weight is evenly distributed by a tension arc. This redistribution of body weight helps to ensure a cyclist seat isn’t chafed by the saddle. The Memory Foam is thicker on the sit bones while softer on the front. The varying padding ensures a cyclist is comfortable on long rides and races without having too much padding in the way. The full carbon rail is solid while still very lightweight. If you want to maximize the absorption of road vibration but don’t mind a little extra weight, try the Skyline series that include shock absorbing Titanium rails.
