Selle Italia has announced the new Iron Evo saddle, available in two versions, the Superflow and the Carbon Kit.
The new product demonstrates Selle Italia’s “understanding of the great challenges an Iron Man triathlete has to endure”, the company has said, and is an evolution of its Iron model. It maintains characteristics of the previous model, but has ‘improved comfort’, thanks to the wider nose and the double density padding.
The two-time World Champion Patrick Lange, holder of the Kona record, together with the BMC-Vifit team, has provided ongoing input and feedback throughout the development of the Iron Evo, collaborating in the research and
implementation of new features. The result is a saddle “fitted to the demands of the most demanding triathletes, who are looking for a product that is both a vehicle of excellent success and comfortable at the same time.”
“The gritty, racing-focused look is evident in the matte Selle Italia logo and the ‘streamlined’ red Ironman inserts, while visibility and safety are guaranteed by the fluorescent insert on the back of the saddle,” said a statement. “On the technical front, the objective of guaranteeing a high level of comfort while pedalling without compromising performance is guaranteed by a series of characteristics that make it unique in its sector.
“The shape, above all, regular and compact and with a redesigned front part, is capable of adapting to the triathlete’s seating needs and allows an effective thrust to be maintained at all times of performance. The increased width of the front is a guarantee of uncompromising comfort, while a stable and effective positioning in the saddle is made possible by the double density padding (hard and soft) and by the ‘gripping’ front layer.”
