SDG Satellite Saddle

Technical specs

  • titanium rails;
  • weight: 241g;
  • nylon/carbon waterproof base;

Tuning potential

Removing all of the plastic strips and crap will drop the weight to 208g without any adverse effect on functionality.


Saddle has good firm padding. Comfier than Selle Italia flite or WTB Silverado saddle, but lacks the central relief channel of something like the WTB Laser so loses out a little on the comfort scale because of this.
