The Speedneedle has been on the market for an unbelievable 20 years, and just in time for its anniversary, Tune proudly present the new Speedneedle 20TWENTY.
Tune have been offering their Speedneedle saddle for over 20 years! It was one of the first light weight saddles suitable for everyday use. The de facto low weight (depending on the model, potentially under 90 g), the high comfort, the durability and of course the unique design all helped their Tune Speedneedle to quickly become a enduring offering, and not just on the lightweight scene. From its release, up until today, demand has remained constant.
Now Tune proudly present the new Speedneedle 20TWENTY to celebrate and anticipate the next 20 years. The Speedneedle 20TWENTY is based on the Speedneedle Marathon, though at 130 mm, it’s a little wider. Tune also kept their proprietary carbon-aramid-mixed struts. What they updated, was the saddle shell and the upholstering, instead of two overlapping pieces of leather / alcantara, the saddle is now covered by two pieces laid parallel along the longest axis to guarantee comfort!
The saddle is available from today, with an alcantara upholstery at 99 g, or in leather in black, white or red (114 g).
Every single Speedneedle saddle is handmade by Jürgen Mikus. Jürgen runs a small carbon workshop in Leverkusen, Germany. He manufactures specialist carbon products with intense love. Hence, they can only offer limited quantities, as the Speedneedle saddle is not for mass production. Therefore please anticipate a slightly longer than usual lead time, but trust Tune, the saddles are well worth it!
Note: The saddle has a reinforced carbon frame and does not fit all seatposts.
