Nova is a very versatile saddle, designed for both road cyclists and off-road enthusiasts. It is glueless and eco-friendly: once the rail has been extracted from its housing, the recycling of the saddle does not require any separation of materials.
The wide anatomical opening, the Close Fit ischial supportand the lateral shaping typical of the Repente Ergo Shape make Nova comfortable and prevent pain and numbness.
Repente has also designed the Soft Cell system: the pressure exerted by the cyclist's body causes a controlled sinking of the padding inside the cells in the shell.
The shell and the padding are made of a single material, thermoplastic polyurethane, and are coupled using an exclusive technology by Repente. This technology, in addition to the ergonomic design, makes Nova more comfortable, although the padding is not soft to the touch.
The particularly refined aesthetics of Nova contributes to making it a saddle with great personality. As for functionality, the design is inevitably influenced by Repente's experience in professional cycling.
The TPU engineered by Repente does not require a protective surface coating, therefore no additional interface adhesive layer is needed.
The extreme simplification of the production steps and of the necessary materials makes Nova unique in the sector for its very low carbon footprint and allows Repente to offer this saddle with an incomparable quality/price ratio.
