  • The SpeedNeedle Alcantara is the lightest version of the tune SpeedNeedle.

    With only 85 g the tune SpeedNeedle Alcantara is another 10 grams lighter than the leather version. The saddle offers the comfort of a classic Flite seat while being very strong, so that it can be used in races as well as everyday training. The recesssed section effectively minimises pressure in the perineum area.

    No usage or rider weight restriction: the SpeedNeedle is approved for road and mountainbikes, no matter if racing or training.

    Sabine Spitz rode the Speedneedle Alcantara on her Peking 2008 gold medal race.
