Prologo Scratch Pro Ti 1.4 Saddle - $81.00

Prologo's Scratch Pro Ti 1.4 hews to a fairly traditional, round profile. That makes it ideal for riders who tend to stay seated, even for climbs. But don't judge this saddle by its microfiber cover, as it incorporates several breakthroughs as well. Like all Prologo saddles, the Scratch Pro Ti 1.4 has a variable stiffness frame (the portion that attaches to the rails), in this case made of injected carbon. Varying the stiffness allows the frame to flex in the middle, which leads to better shock absorption and less rider fatigue. Above the frame, the multi-density foam is softer in the mid-section, reflecting the same principles applied to the construction of the frame, and firmer at the paddle (the widest portion), where you sit.And Prologo also endows the Ti 1.4 with something they call Easy Stroke Design, or ESD, where the width dramatically tapers toward the nose. Think of this like a deeper slot for the stroke of your leg, with less friction between inner thigh and edge of the saddle and far more efficient power transmission.While this saddle gets titanium rails, Prologo saw fit to reinforce them with a nickel coating. This does add a few grams, but also increases durability. If you're a more powerful rider rather than a featherweight spinner, or you want to use this saddle for CX or mountain biking, the additional protection will help lengthen the life of this saddle.Prologo's Scratch Pro Ti 1.4 saddle is available in 134mm and 143mm widths and comes in Hard Black, Black/black, and White/white color schemes. - $81.00
