hi everyone,

this is the second time i have come across pictures of what looks like a new specialized saddle-- maybe an update of their power saddle? the images seem to either have gotten mixed up or mistakenly released-- i found them under the Power Expert listing on the US site. when you click on the "Hyper" color saddle, mixed in with that bright yellow thing are these images of a red and black saddle, also stubby like the Power, but clearly a different shape.

anyone know what this is?

Looks great. Basically taking the Power and mixing it with Dash/ISM. Looks like Power users wanting to try this will have to add 15mm of setback. Also less of a cradle to it.

yeah i thought maybe it was a triathlon thing too possibly.

i like that there is less kick-up in the back.

but i saw this design for the first time over 6 months ago. why no official info yet?

Just looked at the media filenames. It's a new Sitero.

Wonder how it works/looks on a road bike. 138€ in Europe.

Just don’t buy a Meld. Comfortable but structurally a POS. Apparently if you roll over a speed bump - the “impact” can cause the carbon to break.

Sort of interesting- makes me feel pretty confident on a 20mph+ group ride.
