Nack

Nano carbon fiber rail. Carbon fiber, Kevlar and aluminum filaments seat-post clamp area, treated with the production process called Braided Carbon Rail (BCR). This is done in order to obtain “the perfect fusion” and uniformity of the several type of fibers and materials. The result is a balance structure and resistant to penetration.

Carbon Injection Monocoque

After countless hours of R&D, the Prologo engineers have developed a new production process for injected carbon fiber, to create a “Monocoque injected” base. This results in less weight (about 15%), increased stability and even an improved overall finish of the saddle.

ESD Design

The Ergo Shape Design (ESD) is the result of ergonomic and biomechanic studies and tests done by Prologo in the last few years.

CPC - How does it work?

Shock Absorption - CUSHIONING EFFECT.
Thanks to the stratigically placed polymer-shaped volcanos, the elasticity absorbs all shock and vibrations resulting from the "Roads".

The CPC Polymer - The CPC is a special 3D Polymer by the long chain molecular aggregation. It differs from all other polymers present on the market as it has the ability to absorb shock and vibration, and it will not lose its main features over time, ensuring its effectiveness in any weather conditions for a long time.

Vibration Absorption - The CPC with its Nano-structures, protects muscles, tendons and soft tissue stress, shock, vibration and oscillation that results from continuous pedaling, this reduces muscle fatigue, improving recovery time after riding.
Grip and position - The CPC ensures perfect grip and positioning. The design of the material CPC (multiple empty cylinders), it creates a "vacum effect", ensuring a perfect posture and better aerodynamics.

There are many advantages for the athlete: aerodynamics', increases power while improving performance and comfort.
Air Cooling - The CPC allows a continuous flow of air, improving comfort and performance in all weather conditions.
Massaging and Manipulation - Thanks to this special material, CPC system uses the kinetic power produced by the athlete to stimulate blood flow and eliminate tingling or numbness. It therefore benefits the nerves and tendons by helping to avoid tunnel carpal syndrome.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Saddle Guide

 

Saddle Guide

Back in the saddle again

A suitable and comfortable saddle is incredibly important while cycling. You only have three contact points with the bike while cycling - your feet/pedals, hands/handlebars and your saddle. Because of this, it's vital your bike saddle is comfortable to make life easier and prevent chafing, numbness and all manner of unpleasant nether-region complaints.


Choosing the right saddle

Sitting comfortably?

It can be a bit of a task finding the right saddle for you. Just because a saddle has lots of padding doesn't necessarily mean it will be the most comfortable. It all depends on the shape of your behind, your style of riding and your level of tolerance.

Luckily, saddles are an inexpensive upgrade so try a few out to find the perfect perch for your posterior. Ultimately, you need support - the weight needs to be on your sit bones (the bony parts of your bottom) and not on sensitive tissue areas.

For casual riding, a wide, heavily padded seat gives you plenty of cushioning and support. For racing, you don't need as much support, so a narrow saddle is better and won't obstruct your leg movement as much as a wider saddle. Men's saddles tend to be long and thin. Some have padding from foam or gel inserts. Women's saddles are shorter in length and wider at the back.


How to measure your sit bones

Finding your correct sit bone width is easy, and you can do it at home. 

All you need is a flat bench or seat, something to rest your feet on, a piece of cardboard, some chalk and a tape measure. Check out our video to see what you need to do.


Construction

What's in a saddle?

Let's take a look at the geometry of a saddle and some of the features you'll find.

A saddle with steel rails

Rails

Rails (sometimes called the cradle) are found on all saddles and attach it to the seatpost. They are made from steel or lighter materials such as carbon fibre, magnesium or titanium.Some saddles have hollow rails to make them lighter still.

Covering

Saddles are commonly made from high-wicking, durable man-made fabrics such as Lycra, vinyl or synthetic leather. Leather saddles are timeless and stylish, medium weight and extremely durable, although they are more expensive, need covering to protect them from water damage and have to be 'broken in'.

A saddle with gel padding

Comfort Features

Made from metal frames with springs, padded or 'mattress' saddles imitate a mattress. Gel saddles are made from similar material used in cosmetic surgery implants which moves with you to protect sensitive tissue and cushion your body.


Performance Saddles

For speed or endurance

These saddles are narrow and lightweight (sometimes with titanium or carbon rails), with minimal padding and a stiff top.

Mountain bike-specific performance saddles have a shaped rear, downward sloped nose and can be reinforced on areas that impact when you crash. Aggressive off-road riding saddles are longer for more fore/aft body position adjustments.

Comfort Saddles

Cushioned perch

These saddles are useful with comfort bikes or hybrids where the handlebars are higher or as high as the seat, requiring more weight to be put on the saddle. Comfort saddles are well padded and wide, especially at the back.

Women's Saddles

For the female form

Women tend to have wider pelvic bones than men, therefore female-friendly saddles are shorter in length, wider at the back and have pronounced cutaways at the sides.

As with men's saddles, you can still choose different widths with many brands, to suit your own body shape.

Specialized have a range of saddles specifically designed for women

Saddle Accessories

Extra comfort and care

There are a variety of products available to keep your saddle dry, in good working order and also to help you ride more comfortably on it. A pair of padded shorts or tights gives you amazing extra comfort which is essential for long rides.

Leather saddles need a bit of moisturising - treat them to some treatment wax. Keep your saddle dry with a rain cover. Easy to transport, quick to dry and inexpensive.
