PRO Stealth Superlight saddle gets one-piece carbon rail & shell structure

Taking their wide-and-short Stealth saddles to new heights (or lows?), the new PRO Stealth SL saddle drops weight down to 145g by using a full carbon base structure. Made with laid-up carbon fibers rather than injection molded carbon, the saddle was created as a single piece. This means rails and shell are made as one, which gave them more control over the flex and compliance while also shedding grams…about 27g off the prior top model.

The structure uses a center channel cutout with reinforcing ribs to prevent splay, but still reduce pressure points. The overall shape remains the same, with the wider, more supportive nose that’s good for low, aero positions and time trial riding.

The upper gets a lightweight EVA foam with smooth PU cover. They say they tested the cover material with various bibshorts to ensure it would minimize friction, so you can pedal smoothly without irritation. Underneath are the usual PRO accessory attachment points for their action cam mount, CO2 mount, etc. Retail will be $299 when it goes on sale in November, your choice of 142mm or 152mm widths.
