Cycling Weekly Verdict

Repente’s Carbon LCF Series Prime 2.0 saddle ticks an impressive range of boxes. At 169g, it’s very lightweight for its size and price, the patented RLS system allows you to replace the seat cover should you scuff the one it comes with or want a different design, and the carbon shell provides an efficient feeling platform that still flexes with your movements. The only real downside is that the cover can be a little slippery in wet and grimy conditions.

Italian saddle manufacturer, Repente, recognises this with its Carbon LCF Series Prime 2.0 – which is designed to be lightweight while still at a reasonable price.
