Weighs less than a bar of chocolate, but lasts considerably longer. Despite the reduced weight of only 90 g, the SPEEDNEEDLE carbon saddle by Tune is a really robust piece of carbon fibre that generously withstands tougher rides off the road on all-mountain tours or enduro trails.
The SPEEDNEEDLE rail features a large clamping area, which allows for the use of straight posts on almost all bikes. The tough lightweight saddle with a partial Alcantara cover is especially suitable for frequent riders and road cyclists. This is because the padded high-tech microfibre fabric feels like leather and is extremely durable, which makes it perfectly suitable as a hard-wearing saddle cover. A deep cutout in the carbon saddle shell between rear part and saddle nose reduces pressure in the perineal area. In the case of the Tune SPEEDNEEDLE, too, a low weight and high comfort are not mutually exclusive.

Note: The saddle must only be used in combination with compatible seatposts. The saddle rails of Tune saddles are extremely oval, so that there might be problems with side clamps in some cases. The rail should perfectly fit into the clamp without any play.
