Its sharp lines are a metaphor of speed. At 130 grams Aleena represents the lightest of padded seats. Its eye-catching design is the touch of class to make any bike shine. The anatomic channel relieves pressure on the prostate area without reducing the support surface. Comfort is guaranteed by the self-shaping effect of EVA non-allergenic material and by the anatomical recesses in the rear saddle. Aleena, 130 grams of pure Italian style! Read More >>>
If you want to fully appreciate the quality of a Repente seat, do not stop at the surface. Turn it over and check what’s underneath. A Repente seat does not have a “dark side”: ours is a 360-degree approach to quality. Inspect every detail of the innovative RC-Base: Its carefully shaped design with a clever combination of thicker areas and reliefs, materials that blend together with harmonious lines. Marvel at the smoothness and lightness of the best carbon fibre composites. In a Repente seat, nothing is hidden: What you see is what you get!
The structural components of Repente seats are produced using T700 carbon fibre. Manufacture is not done by moulding, but by autoclaving. This process requires longer working cycles and higher production costs, but the quality of the end product is significantly higher. The carbon fibre composite will not undergo external stress; therefore, its mechanical properties remain unchanged. In addition, autoclave processing eliminates the problem of micro-gaps in the fibres. The applied A.R.E technology allows us to make the best use of the carbon fibre material and ensure the highest degree of strength and reliability for our seats. Four years of guarantee are our pledge to you.
In a Repente seat, the rail does not just have a supporting function. The horizontal elements of the carbon fibre structure have been designed with differential cross-sections to achieve the right mix of rigidity and flexibility throughout the support plane. The rear ends have been flattened to provide more homogeneous rigidity to the most heavily stressed part of the seat, while the front ends merge into a single, sturdy structural element. Pressure applied to the seat in the various riding stages is always under control. Smooth lines are also at the front, where the two modulated section support arms harmoniously blend into the tip.
The width of the seat is the result of anatomical measurements and shaping based on an average human build. Repente has developed three different shapes: Aleena, Comptus and Kuma. Compact dimensions, light weight and freedom of movement are the guidelines that we followed to determine the exact length of Repente seats. Our seats are slightly shorter than the standard sizes: This will help you feel more comfortable in the saddle and able to move with the greatest ease from the sitting to the sprinting position and vice versa.
ISSG (Integrated Shell Side Guards).
Even the most careful and diligent cyclist can confirm: In the long run, all seats will bear scuffs or marks along the rear edges, caused by friction against walls or the asphalt. Seat cover damaging is almost inevitable, which is why Repente came up with ISSG (Integrated Shell Side Guards). The carbon fibre RC-Base to which the seat cover is secured has two slight protrusions, which protect the seat cover from accidental friction marks. We know how much you care about your seat: With ISSG, we can help you keep it safe over time. Read Less >>>
