Selle Repente has expanded its range of saddles to include the new Quasar, the first model from the Italian brand to have a steel instead of carbon fiber rails.
“The Quasar stands out both for the gritty appeal of its design and for its excellent cost/effectiveness. Painstaking care has been applied to every single detail – both in the design phase and in the product manufacturing process, all exquisitely Italian-made in the best Repente tradition. Design, comfort and functionality are intended to come together in the new Quasar saddle offering – to meet the needs of both racers and amateur cyclists alike,” says the company.
The saddle shape features a 142 mm “flat” design with a wide central channel that’s designed to relieve perineal pressure, while the rear support surface has been “modeled” according to anatomical and ergonomic requirements – a typical feature of all Selle Repente saddles.
According to Selle Repente, the “close fit” effect produced by the saddle’s distinctive shape makes it comfortable without having to use thick layers of padding, allowing riders to find their most effective riding position.
Additionally, the shell is made of PA12 reinforced with long carbon fibers (LCF technology), the same design developed by Selle Repente to increase the strength of its Prime 2.0, Spyd 2.0 and Artax GL models, while the padding relies on polyurethane, along with a water-based non-slip microfiber surface for the cover. In addition, the rails are made of Aisi Stainless Steel, which are further strengthened by a special process called Shot 304 that hardens the metal surface and makes it more resistant.
The Quasar is available at a recommended retail price of €109 euro.
