SKYLINE VT TACÀ (with “tacà” meaning stuck and closed in Venetian dialect) features an anti-vibration self-supporting twin shell. Designed to significantly reduce vibrations and reinforce the construction with the Spas System Technology (SPAS): 2 pads between the carbon rail and the shells dampen and reduce vibrations by up to 20% off-road. The inner shell is made of 15% carbon-fibre reinforced nylon, while the outer shell is made of nylon with Soft Touch finish. Both come in an open U shape, which significantly increases the padding space while maintaining the same volume. This compact, high performance saddle is 135mm wide and 275 mm long.
