Description of Ritchey WCS Vector Evo Contrail Saddle - 2016 - black
Compared to the Streem, the Contrail features a more rounded profile on the rear edge of the saddle and a subtle curve front-to-rear. Superlight foam shape and narrow carbon fiber injection shell combine to make a new, comfortable performance riden saddle.
The key to the system is the patented Vector Evo rail. Far more than just another 'mono rail' design, the Vector Evo acts like a carefully-tuned suspension system for your body weight, managing stress through the rail itself and into the Vector Wing. It also allows an amount of lateral flex that flows with your pedal stroke, further eliminating hot spots on long rides. The design is also very strong and prevents the sag that most other lightweight saddles suffer. No other saddle system offers the level of refined ride comfort, weight savings and adjustment range as the Ritchey Vector Evo.
more padding than the Streem saddle
carbon reinforced thermoplastic rail works with Vector Wing™ system to distribute stress and manage shell flex
superior compliance over traditional carbon rail saddles
rail material has qualities that absorb energy and diffuse stress
precisely tuned lateral flex allows the saddle to follow the rider's natural pedal motion
narrow clamping zone increases pedaling clearance
reverse hammock rail shape resists "sag" found in other saddles after long-term use
Including Vector Evo seat clamp for Link seatposts
Note: Due to the proprietary Vector Evo rail design a seatpost with a special clamp head is needed to use Ritchey Vector Evo saddles.
