For a comfortable and effective pedaling
Prime 3.0 - 142 is the wide seat saddle designed to transform the freedom of movement of your legs into performance quality. The shape, modeled on the basis of anatomical and ergonomic studies, provides the necessary support in the strategic points, for a comfortable and effective pedaling. Every single detail of Prime 3.0 - 142mm has been designed to raise the level of your performance.
The shape of the rear of the saddle has been designed to provide a uniform contact area for customers who require this saddle size. Repente's R&D has focussed on avoiding any hindrance to the free motion of the hip joint during the pedal downstroke, creating leverage for the cyclist in terms of comfort and thrust effectiveness.
The central anatomical channel has been made even wider.
The thickness of the padding layer has been increased throughout the surface of the saddle, in consideration of the fact that the 142 mm width size is mainly used by cyclists with an above-average build. To ensure a more comfortable sitting position both on uneven ground and over long distances, EVA material, highly suitable for its top lightness and shock absorption properties, has been used for the padding.
The tip of Prime 3.0 - 142 has a thicker padding layer with a square-shaped cross section to provide the best support when moving forward along the saddle.
The saddle graphics, minimal and stylish, combine design with functionality. The sides of the middle-front part feature a graphic pattern in glossy paint, which has the effect of reducing any inner thigh chafing.
A Concentrate of Technologies
The differential section rail is made of T700 unidirectional carbon fibre.
The material used for the supporting structure of the saddle is PA12 polyurethane, reinforced with the LCF technology: instead of plain carbon fibre “chops”, longer carbon fibers are added to the resin which, thanks to a special injection process, are arranged to match the longitudinal flow of the material, until they form a sort of weave that increases the strength of the structure. As demonstrated by the tests carried out, this technology minimizes the risk of deformation of the shell.
Repente has also applied to Prime 3.0 - 142 its proprietary RLS cover replacement technology.
The Repente saddle cover is made of water-based non-slip PU, already used with excellent results in other Repente models, including Quasar. This solution allows the athlete to adopt the best stance on the bike throughout the session without limiting the necessary movements.
