SCHMOLKE saddle SL 119 carbon suede edition
With this leather-padded saddle, comfort came first.
In addition to the upholstery, the basis for the extraordinary seating comfort is the extremely stable and very flexible saddlecloth. The 119 gram saddle has highly oval saddle rails with a special fiber arrangement that make it particularly stable. In addition, the saddle has a foam rubber padding under the comfortable cover made of roughened leather. The roughened surface offers the rider better grip on the saddle.
As with all Schmolke carbon products, the general 2 year guarantee against manufacturing defects as well as the individual crash replacement offer apply to the SL 119 saddle.
WHAT DOES SL
“SL” stands for super light. In this series, Schmolke only uses fibers of the T800 quality for handlebars and seat posts, while fibers of the T300 to T700 quality are used in the industry. In addition, the low weight with the known stability is made possible by the load-appropriate layer structure.
Already in his youth he started actively racing with his brother Matthias. Sports passion and technical interest motivated Schmolke to study mechanical engineering and to do a corresponding study work under lightweight construction legend Hans Christian Smolik. In 1992, his diploma thesis on "new materials and the theory of a carbon racing handlebar" was followed in the same year by the establishment of Schmolke Carbon and the production of the first racing handlebars made of carbon. He gained in-depth knowledge of lightweight construction at the aerospace manufacturer EADS, for whom he initially worked full-time. In this way he was able to always incorporate the skills he had learned into refining his products. These constant improvements to details have kept Schmolke carbon bicycle parts at the top for over 20 years. Carbon handlebars and seat posts for mountain bikes and racing bikes are among the best and lightest that the market has to offer. Schmolke Carbon products are produced in Constance on Lake Constance.
