"In short, the RLt is amazing"
TRIATHLETES, TRIATHLON, RIDO RLt, REMARKABLY COMFORTABLE
220 Triathlon magazine, February 2012
"The RLt is the sleeker performance version of Rido’s R2 saddle. It shares the R2’s ‘Pressure Shift Geometry’ (firmer, more arched flanks that support your sit bone and raise your perineum to reduce pressure and any accompanying numbness), but fortunately not the
bulky appearance and weight. The RLt is a lot better looking and tips the 220 scales at a competitive 226g.
More importantly, the RLt is remarkably comfortable. Parking yourself on it feels odd at first; you don’t feel planted, as you don’t sink into it like you would another saddle. Instead you’re propped up on just your cheeks. But, despite how it sounds, it feels good. And it keeps on feeling good. You expect to experience some discomfort but on the RLt it never materialises, no matter how far or hard you ride.
In short, the RLt is amazing: a race-worthy saddle with titanium-alloy rails and sublime comfort all for less than 70 quid. RB
VERDICT As light and as comfy as saddles that cost three times more.
