Syncros' top end XR 1. 0 Carbon Saddle was designed with a women's specific fit and just enough cushioning for roosting berms and railing turns down singletrack all day. The addition of 7 x 9mm carbon rails and a carbon injected nylon base add to the saddle's vibration damping powers across root latticed trails and rocky climbs. Not strictly a race saddle, the XR 1. 0 has a light layer of PU cushioning for added comfort over long rides. The soft microfiber outer cover wrapped over the entire saddle to protect it from wear and tear from the elements is strictly race minded, though. Syncros includes a pressure relief channel in the middle of the saddle for a strategic distribution of weight, and the positive material surrounding the channel is shaped to accommodate women's anatomies. The XR 1. 0 is also available in two width options, so you don't have to sacrifice comfort for this lightweight, efficient addition to your mountain bike.
