The Prime offers a perfect mix of rigidity and comfort, in order to satisfy both racers and those who prefer long rides. With its treamlined, minimal lines and 160 grams it is one of the very special articles in its segment. It’s main characteristic is the wider anatomical cutout, that helps to ease pressure on the perineal area.
Thanks to their lightness, outstanding technical characteristics and the quality of the materials used, PRIME and SPYD – TPX Series are an excellent alternative to full carbon models.
The frame is made of T700 unidirectional carbon fibre, while the main base is made of woven carbon fibre, laminated in a thermoplastic matrix. The structure ensures exceptionally high strength, together with very low weight. This is a non-deformable structure, whose stiffness is compensated by the ergonomic shaping and by the quality of the padding.
The cover shell, which will fit onto that of the base, is the result of a mixture between a noble polymer and carbon fibres. Differentiated thickness padding in hypo-allergenic polyurethane ensures the right level of comfort for the seat. The density of the material has been optimised to avoid feelings of numbness and pain.
RLS (Repente Locking System): Prime and Spyd consist of a universal base part with rail (frame) and a cover – turning the whole assembly into a single element, sturdy and extremely durable.

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.
LONG CARBON FIBERS To ensure that the saddle does not lose its rigidity and its shape over time, Repente’s R&D department has developed the LCF (Long Carbon Fibers) technology: instead of plain carbon fibre “chops”, longer carbon fibers are added to the resin which, thanks to a special injection process, are arranged to match the longitudinal flow of the material, until they form a sort of weave that increases the strength of the structure. As demonstrated by the tests carried out, this technology minimises the risk of deformation or collapse of the shell.
REPENTE LOCKING SYSTEM Thanks to the patented RLS locking system, approved after exacting tests in the lab and on the road, you can choose a combination that will help you get the most well-being and power out of each pedal stroke. Repente allows you to maintain your riding position unchanged – eliminating any risk of joint and muscular disorders.

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.
