For those venturing off the beaten path, Prologo has a few new saddles you may want to check out. As part of their partnership with team Education First’s Explore the World project and their sponsorship of the Strade Bianche, Prologo set out to create a range of saddles perfect for any terrain. The result is the AGX line, or Adventure, Gravel, and CX. While they may look similar to existing models, these saddles have thicker foam, more flexible bases, and raised graphics on the back of the saddle which actually increase grip.

Starting with the Scratch M5 AGX, this saddle uses what they call the Multi Sector System which is essentially three different zones of unique foam and single cell padding. Underneath is a long-fiber carbon shell with a central cut out to allow the saddle to flex with the rider.

Measuring 250mm long, and 140mm wide, the saddle is called standard length and intended as a unisex model. Built with Tirox 7mm rails, the saddle has a claimed weight of 201g, and is priced at €119.

Next, the Dimension AGX uses their PAS, or Perineal Area System which is their name for the cutout design. Underneath the cover, there is foam with different densities to support the rider, and a long-fiber carbon shell underneath that. Like the Scratch, the Dimension has thicker 10mm padding, and a shorter overall length at 245mm x 143mm.

Where the Scratch is more of a ‘T’ shape, the Dimension is said to be a ‘V’ shape with a more forward positioning. Offered in Tirox or T4.0 rails with claimed weights of 187g or 217g respectively, the unisex model is priced at $119 / 119€ or $105 / 105€ respectively as well.

Finally, the Akero AGX uses a more traditional design with their Active Base – this time made from a combination of nylon and long-fiber carbon.

Measuring 250mm x 150mm, the saddle again has a ‘V’ shape and is considered unisex. Built with T2.0 rails, the saddle has a claimed weight of 223g, and is the lowest priced AGX model at $75 / 75€.

All of the new AGX saddles are expected to be available in shops before the end of August 2020.

  1. Given how many different variations of Dimension are out there, heres a summary

    Padding:
    normal, 5mm
    NDR: 8mm
    AGX: 10mm

    Each has a few grade for shell and rails materials
    NACK: carbon shell, carbon rails
    Tirox: carbon shell, titanium rails
    T4.0: nylon shell, steel rails

    And of course, to top it up, heres some other features:
    CPC: small suction cups that prevent you from sliding
    Space: standard is 143mm wide, space is abit wider
    Tri: similar to Specialized Power Arc series, the wings of the saddle are more curved to allow for more aggressive riding position.
