Syncros combines the lightweight attributes of carbon rails and injected shells to provide the RP1.0 saddle provide just the right amount of padding to keep you comfortable for the long rides without an extra bulk. The padding is a Superlight EVA foam in that gives comfort without bulk or added weight. The shell which gives the saddle structure, features Syncros's Hexagrid Design. this means a series of hexagonal holes are used in the shell to allow engineered flex and provide pressure relief in targeted areas of the saddle without added weight. These concepts make this a good choice for both road or XC mountain applications. Black/grey graphics on the saddle cover and carbon rails have a low key look and match just about any frame as well as other Syncros products.
