San Marco Aspide Carbon FX Open-Fit Saddle
The Aspide has long been a top choice for riders seeking a saddle that offers top performance and support with all-day comfort. The Wave anatomic profile with flexible carbon shell is combined with San Marco's Biofoam padding to produce this winning design. The Aspide Carbon FX Open-Fit are hand made in small batch production in San Marco's Italian facility for consistently high production quality with every saddle made.
The Aspide shape is what San Marco refers to as the Wave design. The side profile of the saddle from front to rear, has a 5mm central depression similar to a curved line or wave, hence the name. This wave shape is a natural anatomic fit and provides the base for lumbar and lower back support with a good balance of support and relief. The Carbon FX saddle has a long central cutout called Open -Fit. This fill length cut-out improves the blood flow to prevent numbness and provide welcome pressure relief on the perineum.
The Carbon fiber reinforced shell has the right amount of flexibility to offset the stiffness of the carbon rails and DNA X-Shaped Waist. This unique design sees a literal x-shape criss-cross carbon construction that allows the frame to be both lighter and more rigid. The x-shape creates a frame which is torsionally strong to reduce twisting and flex, even when you are running your saddle position to the ends of the rail in fore or aft position. Carbon body and DNA carbon rails help keep the Aside carbon FX down to a respectable 142 grams(132mm width). Choose from 132mm and 142mm width depending on your preference.
