LATUS CL is a high-quality compact saddle for road and off-road cycling, comfortable and light, designed for both men and women.
LATUS CL is the ultimate saddle to meet the needs of users who are after wider seats.
Repente was able to trim the weight down to 145 grams – creating the entire structure by autoclave processing, that ensures a more compact and uniform carbon fibre texture, enhancing the mechanical properties of the material as no other machining process can do. LATUS CL has a flattened rear surface to offer the best support even in the case of very far apart ischial tuberosities (“sit bones”).
The saddle is crossed axially by a channel, whose shape follows the rider’s bone profile matching the inclination of the pelvis. The anatomical channel reaches its maximum depth where this is most useful to help ease pressure on the perineal area.
The curvature between the wider part of the saddle and the more tapered front has been designed to guarantee maximum freedom of leg movement and to avoid any inner thigh chafing.
Viewed from the side, the upper profile of the saddle has a slight central gap, whose purpose is to help cyclists maintain the most comfortable riding position preventing any sliding forward.
The Multi Section Rail takes into account the differences in the distribution of forces along the longitudinal and transverse axes of the saddle.
Extra padding made of EVA, a high-performance material, ensures support all the way to the front, avoiding discomfort and numbness even when riding in an aerodynamic position.

MULTI-SECTION CARBON RAIL In a REPENTE seat, the rail does not just have a supporting function. The horizontal elements of the carbon fibre structure have been designed with differential cross-sections – to achieve the right mix of rigidity and flexibility throughout the support plane. The rear ends have been flattened to provide more homogeneous rigidity to the most heavily stressed part of the seat, while the front ends merge into a single, sturdy structural element. Pressure applied to the seat in the various riding stages is always under control. Smooth lines are also at the front, where the two modulated section support arms harmoniously blend into the tip.
AUTOCLAVE RESISTANCE ENHANCEMENT The structural components of REPENTE full carbon seats are produced using T700 carbon fibre. Machining is not done by moulding, but by autoclaving. This process requires longer working cycles and higher production costs, but the quality of the end product is significantly higher. The carbon fibre composite will not undergo external stress, therefore, its mechanical properties remain unchanged. In addition, autoclave processing eliminates the problem of micro-gaps in the fibres. The applied A.R.E technology allows us to make the best use of the carbon fibre material and ensure the highest degree of strength and reliability for our seats. Four years of guarantee are our pledge to you.

About The Brand
The Repente project is the result of the entrepreneurial spirit of a pool of Italian managers, engineers and designers – who decided to share their experience, gained in decades of top-level, industry-specific work to create innovative products that reflect the state of the art in cycling.
Behind the Repente brand are years of research, design and development. Extensive R&D, aimed at developing innovative concepts, materials and construction solutions up to the highest of standards, and designs able to meet the aesthetic requirements of even the most demanding users. And we should know about demanding: we have waited this long because we are the most demanding of all. Today, we can finally offer sports cyclists something that was not there before, real advantages that go beyond empty claims. So here we are, ready to accept a threefold challenge: make you comfortable in the saddle, make you go fast, make you love your bicycle even more.
Our chosen motto, “Cycling is an art”, is not about us, it is about our love for our sport. The contribution that we want to make to cycling is the fruit of our experience, passion and technology. Cycling is inside us: we live and breathe it, just like you.
