The saddle of choice for Planet X's sponsored racers, the Team Issue Saddle is designed for maximum stiffness and minimum weight.
Carbon rails hold rigid even under the most powerful seated efforts while keeping the scales reading a mere 170g. When you're really hammering away at the pedals, you want a full range of motion for your thighs and the long nose of this saddle provides the perfect perch for avoiding unnecessary chafing.
The saddle starts at 45mm wide and tapers a maximum 125mm, so it provides a stable platform for seated climbs as well without ever ballooning out to 'comfort' proportions. Padding is kept minimal throughout for low weight and to prevent inteference with leg motion, but the carbon rails do help soak up unwanted road buzz.
Make no mistake though, this is no saddle for rattling to the high steet on a heavy shopper. It's a full on race saddle designed for biomechanical precision rather than a luxurious ride.
