Prologo Scratch Pro Plus TI 1.4 Saddle $145.00
Prologo's saddles are placed into one of three categories based on their shape. Flat, semi-round, or round. The Scratch Pro Plus Ti 1.4 Saddle lands in the third category. Its rounded shape makes it a good choice for riders who tend to stay seated, even while climbing.
Like all Prologo saddles, the Scratch Pro Ti 1.4 has a variable stiffness frame (the portion that attaches to the rails), in this case made of injected carbon. Varying the stiffness allows the frame to flex in the middle, which leads to better shock absorption and less rider fatigue. Above the frame, the multi-density foam is softer in the mid-section, reflecting the same principles applied to the construction of the frame, and firmer at the paddle (the widest portion), where you sit.
Prologo also endows the Ti 1.4 with something they call Easy Stroke Design, or ESD, where the width dramatically tapers toward the nose. Think of this like a deeper slot for the stroke of your leg, with less friction between inner thigh and edge of the saddle and far more efficient power transmission.
The Ti 1.4 rests on nickel coated titanium rails. The nickel coating adds a few grams, but it also boosts the durability of the saddle. This, combined with a tough microfiber cover, makes the Ti 1.4 suitable not just for the road, but also a great saddle for cyclocross and mountain biking.
Prologo's Scratch Pro Ti 1.4 Saddle is available in 134mm and 143mm widths and comes in Black/black and White/white color schemes.
