Velocite has released a full carbon saddle called SCS, which stands for Soft Carbon Shell this 2011. By using patented soft carbon fiber layup, the saddle becomes softer than usual carbon fiber products. Weighing in at 113g, Velocite SCS is made lightweight with only minimal compromise to comfort.

More riders are accommodated by the deformable shell in greater comfort than by other naked carbon shell saddles. A perineal cutout adds extra usability and comfort by aiding circulation and increasing ventilation. This makes the saddle for female riders, too.

Along with the soft carbon fiber monocoque shell construction of the 2011 Velocite SCS Saddle are oval carbon rails. Hung on the leaf spring at the rear, the carbon rails provides even more comfort to the saddle as compared to numerous standard padded saddles.

Fizik unveiled a new lineup of saddles, the 2012 Kurve Saddle Range. Aside from the three unique Kurve line models namely Kurve Bull, Kurve Chameleon and Kurve Snake, a completely new rail design called Mobius is also introduced.

Bull, Chameleon and Snake saddles provide a dynamic interface, involving an entirely new base construction called Re:Flex with a unique layering that makes the shell greatly flexible. A circular rail pattern included in the Mobius unique design lessens pressure points.

Cycling comfort is enhanced by the Wing Flex design that reduces thigh contact on the saddle and improves power transfer. Weighing in at 220g, all of the 2012 Fizik Kurve Saddle models are designed with a subtle branding and animal silhouette detailing on the pad surface in a black color scheme.

Measuring 245 x 135mm, the 2011 ISM Adamo Road Saddle has lightweight chromoly steel rails with 75mm flat section that helps achieve a great range of fore and aft adjustment. The saddle is available in black or white.

The bike saddle maker Syncros is out to make a statement with regards to their saddles with the production of the Syncros AM saddle.

The AM (All Mountain) saddle from Syncros uses the toughest materials for their saddles such as chromoly rails and a Kevlar nose and rear corners to make it last longer and withstand any and all types of rigors of cycling.

While similar in the underpinnings with other notable saddles, it does have a uniqueness all its own thanks to the flatter, broader and softer nose which is made out of Kevlar. Aside from this, the built in Kevlar will definitely help you conquer the toughest mountain trail.

Because the saddle’s tip is also blunt thanks to its design, there will be less chances of having to experience your shorts snagging while pedaling. The padding on the AM saddle also provides riders with good support and comfort…
