Grease? Water from a hose and some dish detergent?

Garden hose with adjustable nozzle, soap, and water. Pretty simple, no?

Yeah, except doesn’t work 100%. Tested the Lizard Skins 3d printed grips – You can’t clean every nook and cranny and all kind of dirt just accumulates over time.

The accumulated dirt provides extra compliance over time. No way you are keeping this design clean with “just a garden hose and soap and water.” Good luck with that “strategy.” Dirt will absolutely accumulate in all those crevices over time.

For that price you can almost get a proper custom solution like the posedla joyseat. Also goes down to 150ish g in the new 2.0 version. And should be more comfortable, unless this saddle fits you perfectly already

Hardly news anymore that brand X puts out a 3D printed saddle. There are more to come and it’s always gonna follow the same spiel. To my mind – at least the major brands – are missing out on the great advantage of 3D printing which to my mind is the opportunity to make each saddle 100% custom. What’s achieved by this saddle that could not have been done with any conventional methods of manufacturing or materials?!

With conventional methods you would not have e a gazillion small crevices to attract and hold dirt over time, you could not use the marketing spiel that it’s “3D printed” and you’d have a harder time charging a silly price for it.

Custom is the only way when using 3D printing. Lukas has pointed this out above: https://bikerumor.com/prologo-nago-r4-3d-printed-saddle/#comment-3523058
