The Gravita Alpaca X5 is a gravity mountain bike saddle that gives you the control you need for fast, aggressive downhill riding.
This Gravita version of the Alpaca saddle is the result of close collaboration with top rank riders and their mechanics. Its World Cup proven features perfectly complement gravity oriented bikes, from long-travel enduro to pure downhill. You might not spend much time sitting on your saddle when riding fast down mountains, but the right set-up is still vital if you love fast, rowdy riding but want to stay in full control.
The rounded contours allow smooth, fast movements of the inner legs as you guide your bike down the hill. Flexible edges along the wings and rear end protect your inner legs from bruising, however rough the ride. And less bulk and a shorter length allow for more suspension travel.
Rugged conditions and aggressive riding require solid solutions, that’s why all Alpaca saddles feature Mobius, a proprietary closed loop rail design, for added strength and weight distribution, making snapped saddle rails on heavy landings a thing of the past.
However much you enjoy the descents, you'll still need to pedal to reach the top of the mountain. The Gravita Alpaca’s flat surface allows continuous changes of position from fore to aft. And the nose is wide and flat, so as you shimmy forward to maintain traction when tackling steep climbs, you have a solid platform to push against.
