Blackburn Ciento Saddle $59.95
Comfort for your 100-milers.
If you have wide sit bones, you probably find that many bike saddles are too narrow. But, at the same time, wider saddle are often awkward and ill-fitting. The Blackburn Ciento Saddle is the perfect solution, as it features a wider paddle with narrow nose for long-ride comfort.
The Ciento, which incidentally means "100" in Italian, is built upon a comfort chassis that helps to dampen road vibration around the perimeter of the saddle. Additionally, the Flexure3 base absorbs additional chatter while at the same time providing a platform that allows power to transfer to the pedals without bounce. The foam padding helps to support your sit bones, and the saddle was given a slight "bowed" shape that gives you extra support for those long, 100-miles rides. If you've been riding since the 1970s, the shape may look oddly familiar, as it harkens back to the pre "lighter is better" days.
The saddle is covered in water-resistant synthetic leather. For extra support, the rails are 7mm chromoly and work with any standard seatpost. It is 275mm long and 160mm wide at the paddle.
The Blackburn Ciento Saddle comes in the size (275mm x 160mm) and is available in both Black and White.
