100% Italian. 100% handmade. 100% innovative. That is the Astute way. A brand new name in the world of saddles but Astute are a company that’s been started by individuals who have a lot of years of experience in other saddle brands.
Essentially the unique thing about Astute saddles is that they have a shell shape that allows for significantly more padding to be held inside it compared to other saddles of similar weight and racing aspirations. Astute call this the ‘u-open’ design.
As well as more padding, the u-open design allows for less pressure hotspot in the central region and an overall aerodynamic shape. The other thing you’ll notice about Astute saddles is that they’re just that little bit better finished than most other saddles. There’s no glue and staples visible, just a seamless, flush aesthetic.View All Astute Products
