Not a collaboration, but it seems that also Trek likes our design

Or buy a Berk Lupina for under $240 USD shipped to your door and support a forum member? I hope nobody here buys this saddle.

:beerchug:


We only have it in 132mm and 150mm.

If padded it adds 4mm on each side, so the 132mm is actually a 140mm (the same saddle shell is used for the padded Lupina saddle,s as the full carbon Lupina)

If it breaks I'm sure trek will come up with some way to deny warranty, like it wasn't on a bontrager (or other trek proprietary part).

Saddle was obviously inspired by the Lupina. I have a padded and unpadded Lupinas. Save money all while supporting an active member like Jure

$380 in US it seems. Looks interesting, may see if LBS can get one.

can't wait to see the marketing ad-lib they use to justify this price.

"we designed the saddle using FEA to optimize flex at the wings for the maximum comfort while minimizing the nose profile for aerodynamics, meanwhile, the carbon layup schedule was refined to reduce weight yet strengthening the rails to enable resonance transfer ensuring the rider can 'listen' to minute changes in surface texture as they carve down canyons"

Here's another vote for Berk's UNpadded Lupina saddle. No Bontrager for me!

I'm a ride or three away from tallying 2K mi on mine and it's been dreamy. Zero issues.

Another poster hypothesized that its slightly flexy nature takes the buzz out of the road. Probably true.

<><><> <><><> Suspect that Trek Bontrager's pricing was optimized on a required GP%. No more, no less. Ha!

It looks and feels a lot more like a narrow Specialized S-works Romin than a berk lupina to me..
