Quasar CR has been tested and reviewed by Giorgio Perugini of Tuttobicitech. Judging by his words, our saddle seems to have passed the exam brilliantly:
REPENT. QUASAR CR, 119 GRAMS OF PURE MAGIC
Lightness, manufacturing quality, excellent materials and a project that works extremely well, here is the new Repente Quasar CR saddle, 119 grams that condense shameless sportiness and truly consistent comfort.
A saddle for demanding cyclists
Several seasons have passed since Repente entered the fray and I can say it with great frankness, this all-Italian player plays against the giants with high quality saddles. Quasar CR is the classic product that attracts the attention of the most experienced cyclists, a refined saddle in which carbon is used very well to give strength and lightness. Quasar is 260 mm long and is positioned halfway between a Prime (275mm) and a Latus (240mm), with a width of 142mm.
Repente does not contradict itself, quality a go go
The rail is made entirely of UD T700 carbon while the structure contain long fibers (LCF technology) to be properly reinforced. The result speaks for itself, thanks also to a very light Superleggera EVA padding, Quasar CR enters the small circle of the lightest padded saddles in the world. The flat seat is wide and embellished with a large central opening, created specifically to relieve pressure, giving it a nice extra breath. The rear support surface is incredibly solid and functional, a perfect base for generating a stable and powerful pedal stroke. The water-based PU coating offers a good non-slip base, but I believe that it is the entire conformation that offers sincere stability. The nose is tapered and is shaped with painstaking attention to ensure a quick transition from sitting to standing.
Why choose Quasar CR?
Because it is a product of remarkable quality. Because it is comfortable and sporty. Because it weighs only 119 grams and is incredibly solid thanks to the materials used. Because if the traditional saddles are too long and the short ones are too short, this is where you need to sit. In short, we can find many reasons, finally, Quasar CR presents itself with all its refined elegance in a black dress of great effect. Just turn it in your hands to understand with how much love and attention it has been prepared for you, isn't that enough? If you are looking for a light saddle, Quasar CR is comfortable, very comfortable and is perfect for configuring top of the range setups. I placed it on the road bike, also using it for a couple of rides on the gravel and this is where Quasar CR made it clear that it is a product capable of making a difference on different terrains. The solidity of the rear support is crazy, as is the freedom of movement it offers to the legs. The padding is not the softest, but it has an excellent return and its thicknesses do not alter a shape that turns out to be really well made.
An expense, but it's not the most expensive of the bunch
With 199 € you get a piece of great class (take a good look at the finishing in its lower part, skilled hands have prepared it!), A saddle that, without making a lot of noise, could give life to a new line of products.
