Once specially designed and manufactured for a well-known German Tour de France champion, the ax-lightness Endurance still lives up to its name today.
Thanks to its homogeneous shape combined with a width of 135 mm, the ax.Endurance is a real all-rounder: it fits almost all bikes and every anatomy. The saddle cover, which is pulled down far over the side, minimizes chances of chafing even with wide thighs.
The shape with a slightly hanging mid section supports the rider offers him a natural hold without pressure points and thus the most comfortable and optimally supported sitting position.
Thanks to its intelligent construction and layup based on our decades of experience in carbon saddle construction, the balancing act is accomplished between lightness and maximum flex. The Endurance is made of high quality carbon prepreg material from European production. The layup takes place in elaborate manual work in the clean room and the saddles cured according to aviation standard in autoclaves.
The complex, strictly controlled production and the use of special UV-resistant resin systems allow us to manufacture the saddles without further painting. This makes the ax.Endurance saddle surface significantly more robust.
All these steps help to turn a special product into an extraordinary product!
As Plus version the ax.Endurance features a recess in the rear area of the saddle shell in which a piece of synthetc leather is precisely worked into the surface. This requires a completely new saddle shell - an effort that we are happy to take in order to generate a completely flat saddle surface without unpleasant transitions or pressure marks. The natural adhesion of the leather enables a non-slip surface and yet preserves the noble aesthetics of the full carbon saddle. The leather inserts are available in black or white.
Handmade by ax-lightness in Duderstadt, Germany and with a rider weight limit of a whopping 100 kg regardless of road bike, gravel bike or XC mountain bike the ax.Endurance tips the scale at just 98 g.
