Dirt loving Syncros offers its minimal, race ready XR saddle in a more wallet friendly option with the XR1. 5 Saddle. Still designed for long rides and fast races on singletrack, the XR1. 5 is made with durable hollow titanium rails instead of carbon. Unlike their carbon counterparts, titanium rails don't demand the use of a torque wrench when making fit adjustments though we'd still recommend it. The saddle's body is made of carbon fiber in a nylon matrix and clothed in a layer of PU cushioning that's light enough to add comfort over long rides but isn't so soft that it slows you down with a bounce castle effect. Syncros wraps a soft, microfiber cover around the cushioning to provide a durable next to shorts layer that will resist wear from the elements without abrading your shorts. The saddle has a central channel for strategically placed relief where you need it, and the option to choose between two widths with a significant 11mm size difference ensures you're not settling for a saddle that isn't the right fit.
