The Koobi PRS Alpha Saddle is the ultimate distance saddle and features breakthrough "tunable suspension." Below the sleek leather and firm padding is Koobi’s state of the art "tunable suspension." This simple to tune, light weight suspension uses proven elastomer spring technology, allowing the rider to tune the suspension to his or her own personal ride preference.

When bumps are encountered by a traditional frame saddle, the foam compresses, the base flexes and the rails flex. The limitation of this dated design is "one size fits all." Actually the "one size fits all" is for a 220 lb person. The greater your actual weight varies from 220 lbs, the less the saddle can optimally absorb bump energy. For lighter riders - especially women - the traditional saddle frame is too stiff. Koobi solves the limitations of a "one size fits all" frame and base by placing an interchangeable elastomer spring between the base and the rail. Softer or firmer elastomers can be installed to soften or firm up your ride.

On a glass smooth road, what you feel is the firmness and shape of the saddle. As roughness is encountered, the elastomer suspension absorbs the bumps energy, reducing fatigue to your sit bones, lower back, shoulders and neck.

Each saddle comes with 3 of 4 sets of elastomer springs: extra soft (white), soft (yellow), medium (red), and firm (blue) offering up to 4/10 inch of travel.

  • Padding Firmness – Firm (For cyclists riding over 8 hours per week and are accustomed to a firm saddle)
  • Rail – Titanium Alloy
  • Weight – 298g
  • Cover – Leather
  • Length – 270mm
  • Width - 1” back from tip of saddle: 38mm , 3” back from tip of saddle: 45mm , Rear of saddle: 146mm

5  Koobi PRS Alpha Saddle, June 26, 2009
Posted By: Dave

So far this saddle has been great. Fits me really well and has relieved saddle induced numbness and pain. With the PRS shock absorbers this saddle really smooths out the high frequency bumps. Highly recommend it and the price is not to bad.
