The Tune Speedneedle is a super light and rather curious looking saddle. Ours was the wider ‘Marathon’ variant and it weighed just 103g. Most superlight fully padded carbon fibre saddles are 40-50g heavier. Of course the Speedneedle isn’t ‘fully padded’ but that’s the real talking point. Only the nose and tail of the Speedneedle are covered and the mid-portion is totally devoid of padding. While the shell does offer some flex it’s still stiffer than most nylon or nylon/carbon blended saddles.
