Boasting the same construction and technologies as seen on the rest of the “Star Line” and “Star Lite” models, this Pilarga model has a wider 145mm platform, compared to the traditional 135mm type. It boasts a Nylon composite shell with 15% of the material being carbon fibre to optimise power transfer, reduce pressure on the perineum and to reduce the overall weight. Backing this up is the highly advanced tri-density padding, which offers varying density to provide the correct type of support in all riding positions.

To help vibrations from the road to be dispersed, the Star Line Pilarga VT also features an innovative rubber cover system design technology. Titanium Rails To boost the performance and impact absorbing of the saddle, Astute has added tubular Titanium rails, which have a mix of 80% Titanium and 20% Vanadium. These are highly durable, lightweight and soak up the worst of the vibrations from the road.
