The new Specialized Sitero triathlon/time trial saddle.
This article was originally published on bikeradar.com.
Specialized today launched a new triathlon/time trial saddle called the Sitero, which features a wide, snub nose, a cut-out channel and a water bottle cage on the rear.
The Sitero Pro will be sold for $225 in black with carbon rails, and the Sitero Expert with titanium rails will be $175, in black or white.
The saddle is designed for riders to sit further up towards the nose with the hips rotated forward. In many respects the Sitero looks like the Adamo, a saddle popular among triathletes with a snub nose and a cut-out channel that extends all the way through the front of the saddle.
The water bottle cage is removable, and a hook for racking the bike in transition can be put on instead. The underside of the saddle nose also works as a hook for transition.
The Sitero Pro weighs 289g with the cage.
The Stiero is 24cm long (compared to ~27cm for most road saddles), about 60mm wide at the nose and steadily widening to a maximum of 145mm.
