    New Ritchey Saddle Design

    New Ritchey WCS Contrail saddle






    Tom Ritchey's newest saddle utilizes superlight foam
    shape and narrow carbon fiber injection shell combine to
    make a new, comfortable performance driven saddle

    Patented Vector Wing design dissipates pressure more evenly

    Slightly shorter and more padded than the Streem

    Lightweight and durable micro fiber cover
    available in black and white

    Length: 272mm
    Width: 138mm

    Chromoly/ Titanium rails

    Only 214g

    What do you guys think?

    Cool looking saddle. When are they available? Price? I'm currently riding the Aliante, which looks similar. How does the new Contrail compare? It would be nice to complete my white WCS cockpit with a new Ritchey saddle!

    Cycling Plus recently reviewed Ritchey Contrail gave it 4 out of 5 stars. I usually find Cycling Plus to be accurate in their reviews (even though saddles are a personal preference).

    Anyone have experience with the Contrail? Recently, I saw this great write up

    7 of the best performance saddles - Cycling Weekly

    FWIW-it looks as if the dimensions may have changed since this original post. According to the site


    • Saddle Dimensions: 280 x 142mm
