"Cycling in an art"
The Repente project is the result of the entrepreneurial spirit of a pool of Italian managers, engineers and designers – who decided to share their experience, gained in decades of top-level, industry-specific work to create innovative products that reflect the state of the art in cycling.
Behind the Repente brand are years of research, design and development. Extensive R&D, aimed at developing innovative concepts, materials and construction solutions up to the highest of standards, and designs able to meet the aesthetic requirements of even the most demanding users. And we should know about demanding: we have waited this long because we are the most demanding of all. Today, we can finally offer sports cyclists something that was not there before, real advantages that go beyond empty claims. So here we are, ready to accept a threefold challenge: make you comfortable in the saddle, make you go fast, make you love your bicycle even more.
Our chosen motto, “Cycling is an art”, is not about us, it is about our love for our sport. The contribution that we want to make to cycling is the fruit of our experience, passion and technology. Cycling is inside us: we live and breathe it, just like you.
REPENTE, FOR THOSE WHO ...
We want the highest quality and we resort to everything that technology and ergonomic studies make available to reach the highest standards of comfort, resistance, lightness and aesthetics. The exclusive RLS system, which allows the interchangeability of the covers with a simple and safe manoeuvre, is a Repente exclusive. With this solution you can always have the saddle that best suits your body or, in case of damage, replace only the necessary part, with obvious cost savings and less waste material.
NOTHING MORE THAN WHAT YOU NEED
We have designed our seats with the goal of doing without what the rider does not need. It is not so obvious as it sounds. REPENTE saddles are shaped on the basis of the rider’s anatomical characteristics and the principles of ergonomics; we specifically decided to do without any feature that would not actually increase the user’s comfort and athletic performance.
THE LIGHTEST PADDED SADDLES
Any project implies a challenge: ours was to create high-end saddles combining top performance and minimised weight. We can proudly state that the light weights achieved with our saddles place them at the top end of the padded saddle range.
It would be easy to reach this goal by compromising on the comfort of those who choose our products. It is a proven fact that saddle comfort is a crucial factor in the quality of cyclists' performance. The choices of professional cyclists are the most obvious proof.
DESIGN: ITALIAN DNA
Those who love Italian style will not miss the fact that our products are an expression of Italian design – simply another name for class, everywhere in the world. Lines with a racing-inspired, sleek, bold look, sophisticated graphics and expertly matched materials turn REPENTE products into added value for any bicycle.
Painstaking care applied to every finishing detail, both on the upper surface and in the structural part of the saddle. A great product must also look great, and we know.
COMFORT COMES FIRST
Light weight and comfort: REPENTE saddles have got this mix just right. The shell is covered with a thin layer of padding for a self-forming effect while at the same time ensuring the necessary reactivity to body weight.
The rear part of the surface includes two small anatomical recesses at contact points: it's the Close Fit design, that makes the seat more comfortable and reduces unintentional movements – making it easier to maintain the same riding position.
In the tip end of the saddles, the thickness of the padding layer has been increased, so to offer the ultimate advantage in the “seat-tip” sitting position, used by cyclists in their maximum effort.
