PRO Expands 2021 Saddle Line with New Models, Enhanced Ergonomic Designs
For the 2021 model year, PRO utilized its new Evolved Ergonomics design approach for the development of the three new models that launch today. PRO’s saddle product developers employed a more intensive focus on riding position, creating a saddle shape for specific riding styles with the new 2021 Falcon, Turnix and Griffon models. In addition to these new models, PRO introduced the Stealth Sport, the more value-oriented model in its popular Stealth saddle line.
PRO has maintained a focus on developing saddles for specific rider types and positions for years. A combination of materials, design features, varied widths and shapes each contribute to PRO’s Evolved Ergonomics development of the right saddle for every rider. The 2021 lineup showcases this design methodology through the following key features per rider:
- The length of each saddle is slightly shorter and specially optimized per rider type
- All saddles now feature a larger anatomic fit (channeling) area for optimal pressure relief
- Each saddle has a carbon fiber reinforced base that was re-engineered to be more compliant
- Saddles utilize EVA super light padding and durable PU covers
Two price and weight options are standard across the PRO saddle line for the 2021 model year: Team edition saddles that utilize lighter carbon fiber rails and Performance saddles that utilize INOX (stainless steel) rails.
New Falcon Saddle
For 2021, the redesigned Falcon saddle is optimized for the most aggressive rider positions. The Falcon has flat side and rear profiles for flexible riders that maintain a stable position on the saddle.
New Turnix Saddle
For 2021, the redesigned Turnix saddle is tuned for riders with a neutral riding position. The Turnix has a curved side profile and a semi-round rear profile for a wide variety of riders who prefer balanced pressure distribution. The Turnix is available in regular fit or anatomic fit options to accommodate a broader rider base.
New Griffon Saddle
For 2021, the redesigned Griffon saddle is made for riders with an upright position. The Griffon has a flat side profile and a round rear profile for less-flexible riders that tend to move around on the saddle more.
New Stealth Sport
The Stealth saddle line has earned a favorable reputation first among elite WorldTour racers who influenced its design, now to off-road riders who are enjoying the Stealth Off-Road saddle for mountain bike and gravel use. New for 2021 is a more affordable road-oriented Stealth Sport that is a value-priced offering due to using more cost-conscious materials.
