RCC Classic Saddle - 145mm
Find your perfect saddle with our fit calculator »
The combination of speed and ease, force and grace
Designed from the ground up by Rapha, our range of saddles has been two years in the making. We’ve been designing the world’s finest bib shorts and chamois pads for years, yet we’ve never had control of their interaction with saddles. Until now. Building on that expertise, we have designed the Classic Saddle to work in tandem with our Classic Bib Shorts II for ultimate comfort.
Exclusive to members of the Rapha Cycling Club, this bespoke version of the Classic Saddle combines timeless styling and contemporary materials for a refined look to complement the club’s distinctive kit. The saddle’s curved profile is designed for riders who prioritise comfort. A shell constructed of a carbon-reinforced nylon is strong and lightweight without compromising on comfort. A lightweight one-piece carbon rail supports the shell via fixtures at the nose and rear. The extended distance between these fixtures allows for a degree of flex and greater comfort. At the rear, a laser-etched metal plate fixes the rail in place. The classic aesthetic is completed with a fully perforated cover, with seamless pleating where it meets the shell for a frictionless finish.
Fit and function redefined
No two riders are the same, yet most saddles are made as if they were. To challenge conventional wisdom on saddle fitting, our Classic Saddle works with the Classic Bib Shorts II for complete comfort. The width and foam density of both the Classic Saddle and the chamois pad in the Classic Bib Shorts II vary according to size. When paired together using Rapha’s fit calculator, the width of the saddle perfectly matches the chamois pad in the bib shorts. The foam density of the pad and the saddle are tailored to provide a degree of compression and support optimised to the rider’s weight. The result: a saddle and pad combination to suit your size and weight for ultimate comfort.
