Astute Skylite 3.0 VT Road Saddle
Sky Lite 3.0 VT features an anti-vibration self-supporting twin shell. Designed to significantly reduce vibrations and reinforce the construction with the Spas System Technology (SPAS): 2 pads between the carbon rail and the shells dampen and reduce vibrations by 20%.
 
The inner shell is made of 15% carbon-fibre reinforced nylon, while the outer shell is made of nylon with Soft Touch finish. Both of them come in an open U shape. An innovative construction enhances the saddle's look while maintaining a clean silhouette and improving performance, as it significantly increases the padding space while preserving the same volume and, as a result, reduces pressures in the perineal area and ensures ultimate comfort. This compact, high performance saddle is 135mm wide and 275mm long.
 
Full-carbon rail with 3K Carbon Rail 7X9 technology for reduced weight. A racing combination designed by Astute. Lightweight, ultimate performance and comfort, even under high-strain conditions.

Miguel Beautiful saddle. Completely alleviates saddle sores during long rides.
Raymond Beautiful lightweight saddle, with enough padding for whole-day comfort.
Graeme A stunning hand made Italian saddle, now on my MTB. Comfortable, great price from Merlin and delivered incredibly quickly. Thank you.
John Very comfortable out of the box . Good looking. I liked I could color coordinate with my frame! A great upgrade from a stock saddle
Mr Page I already had one of these on another bike, they are absolutely superb saddles. It took me a few attempts to find the right saddle, it seems I have good flexibility, so my pelvis rotates forward, meaning that I need a cut-out. However, the other ones I have tried seem to have a noticeable edge to the cut-out, which actually causes more pressure. This saddle has a gradual curve into the cut-out, and the padding is fantastic quality, with different density in different parts of the saddle. For a comfortable, well made saddle it is very light, and I think they look good as well. I can wholeheartedly recommend this, and I will not use another saddle!
Mr Chiang Wonderful road saddle and keeps my hip pain away.
Andrea It's a great product, great manufacturing, very comfortable, light and at a bargain price
Gareth Excellent saddle. Very light and well constructed. Seems comfortable although I've yet to trial it on longer rides.
