New Bontrager Hilo Triathlon specific saddles. Price drops, new shape.

Any triathlete who’s ever suffered from nether region numbness caused by a traditional saddle will be breathing a sigh of relief when they see the new triathlon specific saddle from Bontrager. It features a split nose, what is now widely accepted to be a much better option for most riders, multi layer padding to offer comfort and support and comes in two models. The full carbon rail version is the premium model and is priced accordingly but the new Comp model is priced at about 50% of a lot of comparable models from other brands and drops to less than half the price of the outgoing model that it replaces.

The Hilo Pro Carbon is the big brother of the Comp and weighs in at a feathery 236g compared to 331g for the standard steel rail Comp model.

The Comp model will feature on the newly launched 2018 Speed Concept which we talked about on the blog here. We will have it available in store from the first week of August 2017 with the carbon model set to arrive a couple of weeks later.
