Prologo has updated a number of their popular road and triathlon saddles, tweaking shapes to make them more comfortable.
The Scratch 2 CPC gets the dropped, squared off nose introduced on the Nago Evo last year, but keeps the rounded profile of the rear end. It also adds the CPC material to damp vibration and provide a little non-slip grip. Available with either Tirox (metal) or Nack (carbon) rails. It’ll come in PAS versions with the center relief channel, too, and in 134mm and 143mm widths for most models.
Sit in for more images and details on all the new goods, plus a new saddle fitting system for stockists…
The slanted, squared off nose makes it a little easier to perch further forward on the climbs. Weights range from 177g to 237g.
Not shown, the Nago Evo gets a redesigned base to be more stable, drops a few grams and keeps the CPC, Nack and Tirox options. The Nago is their semi-rounded saddle.
The new Zero C3 is flatter still and uses their new Carbon Composite Compounds to create Prologo’s lightest saddles yet.
By combining a carbon fiber shell and rails, the Zero C3 comes in as light as 145g while remaining stable and less prone to deformation over time. The standard Zero C3 (white, left) is 270x132mm and is 149g. The Zero C3 Pas (black) cuts out a bit of the foam in the center channel to drop another 4 grams.
The Nago Evo X15 is their latest mountain bike offering, and naturally it’s for enduro. The name breaks down as X=offroad and 15=150mm travel bikes. They also make an X8 and X10 version, each with their own shapes based on the type of riding a bike with a particular amount of travel has, so it’s not purely marketing.
The semi-round shape, subtly flared tail and dropped nose have all the same benefits as the road version, namely better support for forward hip rotation and ease of sliding fore/aft. It’s with the CPC or not, and carbon or metal rails. Dimensions are 280x135mm, and weights are 208g/236g for CPC models and 195g/226g for the plain Microtex cover.
The Zero Tri Pas is a new version of their triathlon saddle that adds the center channel and a few other updates. The nose is a bit wider, and CPC material helps keep you from slipping or sliding if your suit’s a little too wet from the swim. The rear is shaped to promote forward hip rotation, which helps you use more of your glutes while hammering away in a tuck.
Dimensions are 254x136mm, and weights are 222g for carbon rails and 256g for Tirox. The standard (non-CPC) models come in at 215g and 250g, all of which are respectably light for a triathlon saddle.
Beyond the saddles, they’re offering retailers a new My Own saddle sizing kit to help customers get the right model. It’s more than just a gel pad to sit on for width measurements (though that’s part of it). It also helps shop folks measure a rider’s flexibility and BMI, plus a discussion of the intended use. All that should help narrow things down quite a bit, then it just comes down to how much carbon you can afford in them thar rails.
