Handmade Performance Saddles

Saddles that provide ultimate comfort, greater stability and have energy saving properties. Designed to help you get the most out of your riding.

Astute is an Italian dream come true. It's the dream of a group of entrepreneurs, visionary friends, and excellent craftsmen, a group of passionate men and women who shared the same idea.

With an ethos that is routed in quality and craftsmanship, Astute believe in quality over quantity. Each saddle that is made has to meet their extremely high standards and quality control before being sent out to each customer.

With their eyes to the future and their roots in the Venetian tradition of saddle makers, Astute combines tradition and innovation, Vision and expertise with painstaking attention to design. This philosophy is deeply rooted in the concept of "Made in Italy", making each product iconic and providing the perfect fit to the rider's body.

This has led to the creation of a revolutionary project, with the only aim to set new standards for technology and design, comfort and elegance in the cycling world, in the full spirit of the Made in Italy label.

Astute saddles are used around the world by cyclists of all abilities and disciplines. From Sunday cyclists and commuters to the very highest echelons of the professional ranks. Astute saddles are currently used by riders from Dimension Data, Pro Team Astana, Wiggle High5 and Direct Energie.
