    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.

    Hi, Fair Wheel team.

    How are you? :) Just wonder what is proper value for torque for this Astute Skylite carbon rail. Checked many of sites but there is no clear comment on this. I even bought torque wrench for this but still no luck.

    What do you think? Do you have any recommendation or document on this?

    Thanks in advance and have a great week!
