Repente has expanded its range of saddles with the addition of new Prime 3.0 and Quasar models, further targeting cyclists across all disciplines and price-points.
Derived from one of Repente’s best sellers, the Prime 2.0, the new Prime 3.0 features both a wider anatomical channel of 142mm and thicker squared-shaped padding that’s aimed at providing a more inform contact area, as well as better freedom of motion for the hip joints, creating what the Italian brand describes as “enhanced leverage for more comfort and thrust effectiveness.”
Additionally, the Prime 3.0 comprises Repente’s RLS cover replacement technology, which utilizes a water-based, non-slip PU material that’s been treated to a glossy finish in order to reduce chafing.
“The Prime 3.0 – 142 is a highly innovative creation, every little detail has been designed and tested to offer the market a new benchmark product combining comfort and performance. Painstaking care has been used throughout the design phase and in the product manufacturing process, all exquisitely Italian-made in the best Repente tradition,” says Repente.
The Quasar breaks with traditional by using Aisi steel rails that have been treated to a strengthening process called Shot 304.
However, less-costly steel rails aside, the Quasar retains many of the attributes of Repente’s top-tier saddles including a central opening and a wide 142mm channel that’s designed to relieve perineal pressure, as well as polyurethane padding that’s been treated with a water-based, non-slip polyurethane microfiber cover and a PA12 shell that’s reinforced with the brand’s Long Carbon Fiber technology.
All in, the Quasar tips the scales at 170 grams, which is pretty impressive for a saddle with steel rails.
