I like the 131mm wide. Any idea what the final weight will be and when available?

Do you have any pics of the underside of the saddle and how it attaches? Also are you on Instagram?

Hi!
I finished 131 and 143 long time ago, we were selling them for a couple of months now.
They both sustained 400+ kgf static load during the tests - until the seatpost's clamp failed :D
So its only 155mm that is recent development.

The weight of 143mm is 85g, 131mm is about 2g lighter = 83g and they were availible long time ago here

I suspect finished 155 will be 87 following this logic :)

Here is the photo from underneath:

Firstly the rail inserted in the front slot of the shell and pushed 2 times further than it will be when the saddle assembled.
It lets to insert the rail in the rear slots and push back squeezing out extra adhesive. So after that the rail is locked into 2 moulded slots which are formed by the fibers that integrated between the layers of the shell.

The only way to detach the rail is rip it out breaking the shell itself.

And yeah, my insta is right below😂😂

Think it’s possible to integrate the swat tool kit to the garmin Varia rear swat mount on a power saddle ?


Would be nice to have the tool kit just behind. Plenty of room.

Hi! I think its possible, however I'd like to stick to dsigning my own products, not upgrading Specialized ones :D
That would be shooting myself in a leg of some kind :lol:

Would you have any other suggestions? I was just thinking their tool kit since it’s already available and all of the tools fit nicely in it. It would simply need to be integrated in a mount.

Would love to hear your ideas.

Well, there are a lot of good portable tool kits on the market. I actually recently found myself fascinated by manual leather work, dont know why really, just starting to really appreciate good natural leather shoes for their comfort and aesthetics.
And with this being said maybe it would be nice to join modern tech carbon fiber saddle with classical hand-made leather tool kit. Something like Mick Peel aka Busymanbicycles does: https://www.instagram.com/p/BymBVyxndlh ... =copy_link

My only concern is that I'd hate to get such thing dirty and wet. But I guess all saddle bags are doomed to get dirty when you are riding in a bad weather.
