Astute Italia Skycarb VT Saddle

Astute Italia is a Italian company that specializes in the design and manufacturer of high end saddles. The Skycarb uses a pair of ultra thin carbon shells and 3k carbon rails to help keep weight down to 140 grams. Despite its lightness, Astute claims high levels of comfort thanks to their triple-density memory foam as well as Astute's shock pad absorber system damping, sandwiched between rails and hull.



The Astute Skycarb is distributed locally by Cycling J&J and is available from their dealers for R6,000.
