UNBOXED & WEIGHED: DASH CYCLES’ 111 GRAM STRIKE 9 ROAD BIKE SADDLE [Bike Rumor]

Dash Cycles Strike 9 carbon fiber padded road bike saddle actual weight and details
Yes, the title of the post gives away the weight. What it doesn’t tell you is that Dash Cycles built this one up with their reinforced, heavier duty layup.
And it’s still just 111g.
With padding.
Dash Cycles builds their saddles by hand in Colorado, and the Strike 9 is the latest addition to an extensive lineup. You can order them to your liking, picking among various colors for the cover, logo and rails, as well as the amount of padding. They have three different layups depending on body weight, with limits up to 100kg (220lbs). The claimed weight for the standard layup and padding is 115g. Our test model, with the heavier layup, tipped in at just 111g.
So, it’s wicked light, but how ’bout that design?

The secret to getting their saddles so light is that they’re made as one piece.
