The Specialized Prolong saddle is made nearly an inch longer in the nose than most of the other saddles. It is 11 3/8" long, tip to tail, without the added weight of a full length rail. It is manufactured in Italy, by Selle San Marco to Specialized specifications. The shell is made of molded nylon, with anatomical depressions to fit added padding in needed areas. The shell is covered with molded, high density foam padding, that is luxuriously thick on top, thinning on the sides and feathering into the saddle shell at the bottom edge.
The foam support is covered by a very smooth Black leather that is cut with care, and glued cleanly to the bottom of the inner shell. The height of the front half of the saddle is cut shorter so the Prolong isn't as wide, producing less leg chafing. The Prolong has two rail receivers molded into the shell at the rear and a front rail bridge that is a solid block, re-enforcing both sides of the shell at the nose. The rails are made of spring steel, that is painted Black with the return curve at the front. The return curve is 1 3/4" from the tip. Made in Black only, the Prolong weighs 303 grams. $ Price in Catalog
