Selle Repente has launched a new saddle called the Latus CL, which the Italian brand says was designed to meet the needs of cyclists who are looking for a wider saddle that’s also compact and lightweight.
According to Selle Repente, the new Latus CL’s dimensions are 240 mm x 152 mm and weighs just 145 grams, comprising a structure made of twill weave, unidirectional carbon fiber that’s been optimized using an intricate autoclaving process.
The Latus CL also features a flattened rear support surface that’s aimed at offering maximum support even in cases where the cyclist has ischial tuberosities (sit bones) that are placed far apart.
The Latus CL is also highlighted by a “crossed axially channel”, wherein the shape follows the cyclist’s bone profile matching the inclination of the pelvis, while the anatomical channel reaches its maximum depth where it’s most helpful at reducing pressure on the perineal area.
Additionally, the curvature between the wider part of the saddle and the more tapered front has been designed to guarantee maximum freedom of leg movement and to avoid inner thigh chafing.
Viewed from the side, the upper profile of the Latus CL has a slight central gap, the purpose of which is to help the cyclist maintain the most comfortable riding position preventing any sliding forward, while extra EVA padding has been added all along the top of the saddle to eliminate discomfort and numbness even when riding in an aerodynamic position.
Designed for both male and female cyclists, the Latus CL sells for 219 euros.
