ASTUTE SKYLITE I-PROF VT NYLON/CARBON
• Flat design for on-road endurance riding and long training or racing sessions. • Anti-vibration self-supporting twin shell, designed to significantly reduce vibrations and reinforce the construction. • Spas System Technology (SPAS): 2 pads between the carbon rail and the shells dampen and reduce vibrations by 20%. • Inner shell is made of 15% carbon-fiber reinforced nylon, while the outer shell is made of nylon with Soft Touch finish. • U shape- reduces pressures in the perineal area and ensures ultimate comfort. • Compact, high performance standard dimensions are 135mm wide and 275mm long. • Weight 185 grams. • Dimensions 135 mm x 275. • Full-carbon rail with 3K Carbon Rail 7X9 technology for reduced weight. • VT seat is designed with a central cut-out to eliminate pressure peaks in the pelvic area. • The tension arc is created with a perfectly balanced weight distribution for smooth, comfortable riding. • Three-density progressive Memory Foam padding provides better comfort in the perineal area - firmer in the back to support the sit bones, and softer on the front.
The Astute Skylite 1-Prof VT Nylon/Carbon was the first high-tech smart saddle on the market. The flat seat was designed for comfort on long road races and long training rides. Road vibration is absorbed by two pads, a carbon rail and Memory Foams padding. The two pads between the carbon rail and the shells ease vibrations by 20%. The inner shell made of 15% carbon-fiber reinforced nylon and the outer shell made of nylon with Soft Shell finish come in a U shape. The shape increases the padding space while maintaining a low volume. The design reduces pressure in the perineal area to enhance comfort. 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 as the intensity increases. 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.
