Clean, modern aesthetics and refreshingly affordable prices: UK-based newcomer Fabric hasn't taken long to attract well-deserved attention from the glossies for its saddles' functionality, and we're thrilled to see the brand getting its due. For 2017, it expanded its line of tri-specific saddles to include three different rail materials to accommodate everyone from novice triathletes to dedicated semi-pros. The Tri Race Saddle caters to those somewhere in the middle of the above categories. It's built on durable, lightweight titanium rails, features Fabric's signature waterproof microfiber cover, and comes shaped to complement tri and TT bike geometry.
Aside from rail material, and subsequently weight, nothing separates each of the saddles in Fabric's Tri line. A short, wide shape better supports your nether regions in the flatter, stretched-out body position in which tri and TT bikes situate riders, and Fabric thoughtfully includes features like a bike hanger and rear bottle mount to help streamline transition area setups and race day hydration. The Race comes with a nylon base that allows for comfort-enhancing flex, to which Fabric fuses foam padding and a microfiber cover, creating an extremely light saddle that feels like one streamlined piece.

- Q & A
Great as a Road Saddle
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Replacement for Fizik Antares this seemed a stretch. But remarkably comfortable on a Cervelo R5 with the Fabric at about 5 degrees of tilt. Pressure gone and good flex makes up for thinner padding than the Antares.
Amazing TT/Tri Saddle
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
So happy with this saddle thus far, unparalleled comfort from day 1. The nose is quite thin, which gives the saddle a bit of a road bike saddle feel, yet still extremely comfortable in the aero position. The rear cage mount is quite nice, but removable if you don't fancy a saddle mounted bottle cage. Nice work Fabric.
Is the integrated bike hanger removable? I'd love it for race day, but if it gets in the way of a saddle bag during training rides it would be nice to be able to take it off when needed.
