Prologo Nago EVO X8 TS Saddle $199.95
Supported by titanium.
Relying on the Nago EVO X8 body as its platform, the new Prologo Nago Evo X8 TS Saddle combines many of the Italian saddle maker's key technologies into a single, ultra-versatile design. Its shape, materials, and rail system have all been engineered to provide one of the lightest and most supportive saddles available, making it ideal for both road and XC mountain applications.
Prologo chose to build the Nago EVO X8 TS Saddle around its solid Ti rail system. This is a full titanium rail with a lightweight base and clamping zone that's both durable and incredibly stiff — it's actually the same titanium composition used in the airspace industries due to its low weight and durable properties. Prologo then attached its carbon fiber injected "skeleton" base to the Ti rails, creating a supportive foundation that works in conjunction with the patented EV2-Active Density padding.
This padding is actually a "system" of varying foam densities that have been strategically placed to provide the optimal blend of comfort and support. The system works to perfectly complement the saddle's semi-round shape, with the composition of padding densities moving along a gradient. At the widest 135mm rear section, multiple layers of high-density padding were applied to handle the bulk of a rider's weight. The perennial zone, or central section, incorporates a medium density, which then tapers toward the softly padded nose.
To keep the Nago EVO's cover free from scuffs, Prologo finished off the saddle with its Side Protector bumpers. It's also U-clip compatible, meaning that it'll accept a variety of Prologo's clip-on lights and saddle bags.
The Prologo Nago EVO X8 TS Saddle is available in a 280x135mm size and in the colors Black/white and White/black.
