Wide but not too wide: Selle Repente presents Latus M
www.endurancebusiness.com - The new Latus M saddle from Selle Repente is billed as being ‘Wide but not too wide, lightweight and comfortable enough to satisfy even the most demanding rider.’ Latus M is a full carbon saddle for cyclists who prefer a slightly wider fit than traditional saddles.
According to Selle Repente, its 142 mm width is one of the standard dimensions most requested in the ‘wide seat’ range.
Latus M is one of the Repente saddles chosen by the riders of Professional Team Caja Rural – Rga and by the élite women teams Ceratizit Wnt and Bepink.
Like in the Latus CL (152 mm) the materials and construction concepts include: autoclave processing of unidirectional carbon fibre through to a differential section rail to dose stiffness and comfort. With a wide anatomical channel with Eva padding, the saddle is shaped to ensure adequate support even in the seat tip area and helps to prevent riders sliding forward.
‘Latus M dimensions are 240mm x 142mm. Its weight does not exceed 140 grams.’
It is positioned as a saddle suitable for both road riders and off road enthusiasts. Its compact size and the shape of the front area aim to enhance freedom of movement during pedalling. The suggested retail price is €218.
