The Racing Protek Open saddle is the basic off road version of the new Aspide. This saddle features the Open System which is designed for total support and relief in the perineal area and silicone inserts increase wear resistance and bike control.A perfect balance between support zone and relief zone in the different situation of pedaling, thanks to the new ergonomy. The hole assures a best relief, keeping wide area of support. Ideal for use off-road the Protek version features silicone inserted into the cover that are distributed in the areas most subject to wear but not only do you help protect the saddle they also increase bike control when sat in the saddle.
The Open System is the result of clinical tests and ongoing research on the anatomical conformation of riders. This feature consists of a gradual opening in the saddle for total support and relief in the perineal area.
Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic
Shell with variable carbon percentage according to the needs or performance required for the saddle. The lengthened carbon fibre reinforces the shell to obtain a very strong, flexible and light material. This mix of materials enables the shell to keep its shape unchanged through years.
A challenge: managing to obtain better comfort in the saddles with gel inserts, lower weight and lasting greater resistance. BioFoam padding is the San Marco solution. The Biodynamic structure that follows the movements of the pelvis during pedaling, guarantees comfort, reduced weight, resistance and ideal support. The “closed cells” surface assures the water repellency of the padding.
This cover is breathable and hard wearing. This material also offers better adherence to the padding, emphasizing the ergonomic shapes of the saddle. It is less deformable and lighter than traditional materials. The particular surface assures an anti-skid effect with an extraordinary grip on the saddle. Its composition respects the standards of bio-compatibility.
Protek helps to increase the resistance of the saddle to wear and tear. To this purpose, silicone supports have been added on the sides, where it is higher the possibility that the saddle deteriorate because of the friction or abrasion.
Lighter and stronger than titanium, Xsilite was born as material of research for the pro riders saddles. It has a high percentage of silicon (here’s the name) together with particles of titanium and carbon. The result is a material with high static toughness, strong like titanium but at the same time lighter.
