"Futuristic design, superb comfort and outstanding performance levels" announces Selle Italia in the press release talking about Special Performance 01, the result of a cutting-edge combination of carbon properties.
SP01 combines comfort, aesthetics and resistance.This product stands out for its innovative and adaptive rear frame, divided into two independent parts following the special “suspension link movement”.
Its shape is designed to effectively support the movement of pelvis without compromising stability while pedalling.The unmistakable shape of the back of the seat gives the product the resistance you need to take to the road with the right support.
Lastly, the design stylishly conveys inspirations from the world of automotives. Sleek shapes with a futuristic flair that give SP01 an unmistakable design, making it a brilliant benchmark of a new saddle idea.
Coming in at just 125 grams, SP01 actually conceals great value in terms of the technology used to create it.
SP01’s prepreg hand lay up is a manufacturing process that came directly from the aerospace and motorsport sectors, using epoxy resin prepregs, manually arranged on top of one another in a specific order to give the composite structural homogeneity.
Compression moulding technology is then used, which is a method for compressing the material into two heated moulds to achieve perfectly repeatable quality standards.
The mix of high-strength fibre, oriented in the direction of the load, along with chopped fibre, give rise to a final product with an incredible strength-to-weight ratio and isotropic properties.
