    We are proud to announce that Fair Wheel will now be offering Astute saddles.

    Handmade entirely in Italy, Astute claims the saddle will set a new standard, and with our limited exposure so far we’re inclined to believe them.

    The saddles will be available in 2 shapes with 3 different models (levels) for each shape and a few color variations.

    Saddles will be either SR or VT.  Both have the same shape but VT has a cut away center.  Both versions will be available in 3 levels, Skyline, Skylite and Skycarbon.  All saddles have the same shape and dimensions with a 275mm length and 135mm width.   Saddles are padded with a tri-density memory foam.

    Skyline comes in at 200 grams and should be around $160.   Two base layers, a carbon-reinforced nylon inner with a nylon outer and titanium rails.

    Skylite comes in at 165 grams and should be around $260.  It takes the Skyline and adds a SPAS suspension system and carbon rails.

    Skycarbon comes in at 145 grams and should be around $450.  It changes both of the shells to full carbon and keeps all the features of the other models.

    Saddles will be available in white or black.

    We’ll put up a full review with a lot more details and ride impressions once we’ve put more time on the saddle.  We will also have several demo saddles available for test rides.
