Description

Sky's the limit.

As the flagship saddle in Astute Italia's line, the Sky Carb 3.0 VT Saddle employs an innovative twin carbon shell designed to reduce vibration before it's transferred to your body, resulting in less fatigue as you lay down power during racing and training scenarios. This two-piece shell uses two additional pads inserted between the carbon shells and rails, further reducing fatiguing vibration as it moves through your frame's seat tube, up your seatpost, then into the saddle.

It's padded with progressive memory foam that's firmer in the rear for additional support and softer up front for comfort and mobility exactly where you need it. This progressive memory foam is covered with a premium Italian microfiber that's both easy to clean and soft to the touch, complete with textured grooves along the sides and nose for a bit more stability.

Seeing it's part of the Sky line, it has a flat shape that diverges from the more rounded Star line of saddles available from Astute Italia. The VT version (i.e. "verta" meaning open in Venetian) of this saddle has a center channel cut-out designed to relieve pressure in the pelvic area. And as you'd expect from a saddle of this pedigree, it's handmade in Italy with only the finest materials and exceptional detail that's simply not available with a mass manufactured saddle.

  • Astute Italia's flagship saddle provides a smoother ride
  • Weighs an feathery 170 grams for competitive racing use

Great saddle

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

At the beginning I was apprehensive spending so much $$$$ on a saddle. After all is just a saddle right !!! Wrong. The saddle is one of the most important parts of you bicycle if not the most since 90% of the time you'll be sitting on it. This saddle is super comfortable, also light weight and flexible. Gives you good support on your butt and at the same time allows you to move around on the bike. Again it's not for everybody specially at this price range but for me it is all. I do recommend this saddle if you are looking for comfort, performance and light weight all in one. There are a handful of saddles that can provide this and the Astute Skycarb 3.0 is one of them. Thanks to competitive cyclist for super quick delivery !!!
