Quasar, aesthetics and performance, combined
Top-class materials and technologies for a saddle that weighs less than 170 grams, designed and developed by Repente on the basis of feedback from professional athletes and the many enthusiasts who use Repente saddles on and off the road. The first saddle by the Italian brand to have a steel rather than a carbon fibre rail.
Quasar stands out both for the gritty appeal of its design and for its excellent cost/effectiveness. Painstaking care has been applied to every single detail - both in the design phase and in the product manufacturing process, all exquisitely Italian-made in the best Repente tradition.
Design, comfort and functionality come together in Quasar - to meet the needs of both racers and amateur cyclists.
The saddle shape is characterised by a 142 mm "flat" design seat and central opening, integrated in a wide channel designed to relieve perineal pressure.
The comfortably sized rear support surface has been modelled according to anatomical and ergonomic requirements - a typical feature of all Repente saddles. The "close fit" effect produced by this particular shape makes the seat comfortable without having to use thick layers of padding and allows users to immediately find their most effective riding position.
The shell is made of PA12 reinforced with long carbon fibres (LCF technology), the same solution adopted by Repente to increase the strength of its Prime 2.0, Spyd 2.0 and Artax GL models.
The padding is in polyurethane, while water-based non-slip polyurethane microfiber has been chosen for the cover.
The rail is made of Aisi Stainless Steel, a type of steel with highly advanced mechanical properties. Repente has further strengthened it by submitting it to a special process called Shot 304, which hardens the metal surface and makes it more resistant.
