Innovation. High technology. Italian craftsmanship. Unique design. This saddle is the result of the exclusive Star project developed by Astute Labs for demanding athletes riding in an aggressive position and seeking advanced solutions. Round shape. For on-road racing. Ensures high performance during races or training sessions.
STAR LITE features an open U-shaped shell in 15% carbon-fibre reinforced nylon. Designed to reduce pressure on the perineum and provide greater support under high-strain conditions. The Cover Design System technology, an innovating rubber system designed to cover the shell and minimise vibrations. The saddle features dedicated dimensions (width 135mm, length 270mm).
Full-carbon rail with 3K Carbon Rail 7X9 technology for reduced weight, with a lower construction for a bolder look. This combination has been developed by Astute to provide higher performance during races.
The Asymmetric Rear Design System provides a bold, easily recognisable design even while riding, with a unique asymmetric soft-touch bow available in 6 different colours in the back. The same colours are featured on the top with the Top Design System, a special cover that lines the central cut-out of the saddle.
The VT seat (from "verta", i.e. "open" in Venetian dialect) has been designed with a central cut-out to eliminate pressure peaks in the pelvic area. The «tension arc» is created with a perfectly balanced weight distribution for smooth, comfortable riding. Ultimate comfort, lightweight and high performance.
Features three-density Progressive Memory Foam padding for 3 different seating areas, firmer in the back to support the sit bones, and softer on the front. Made in Italy and Ecolabel certified, the waterproof microfibre coating features a dedicated print and is easily washable with soap and water.
