For women who rip.
If you like the feel and low weight of Syncros' XR1.0 saddles but aren't as enamored with the higher price, consider Syncros' XR1.5 Women's Saddle. With the same women's-specific shape and race-ready weight, the saddle is constructed with hollow titanium rails instead of carbon to absorb vibrations as you crush through rock gardens and pedal over gravel. Though heavier than its pricier counterpart, titanium is less delicate, and it doesn't require you to use a torque wrench when making adjustments like carbon does.
Aside from the titanium rails, the carbon-injected nylon base and light layer of PU cushioning on the XR1.5 are both the same as those featured on the XR1.0, so you'll gain the same comfort over long days on the trails without sacrificing overall efficiency. The soft microfiber cover around the saddle will resist wear from the elements over time, and a female-specific pressure-relief channel down the center of the XR1.5 encourages healthy circulation and support where you need it while riding. As with many of its other saddles, Syncros offers the XR1.5 in two width options to make sure riders aren't forced to settle with one standard size.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The Syncros XR1.5 has been just the ticket for me, as I start to ride longer and farther in preparation for some races this summer. The cutout (really more of an indent) in the middle channel keeps pressure off and comfort in for even the longest rides. I've been really pleased so far and looking forward to more rides this spring!
