We all have that friend who we see everywhere we go; we all know the one. No matter where we go, we just happen to bump into them. On the floor of the Mandalay Bay that friend was the new Prologo TGALE saddle. No matter where we were on the floor, there it was. The TGALE wasn’t just sitting on the walls of the Prologo booth, either. It could be found all over the floor as standard equipment on multiple manufacturers 2016 bikes.
The TGALE is a split-nose design developed with all of the features triathletes are looking for when it comes time to purchase a new saddle. The nose is spilt up front to relieve pressure on those sensitive places.
The saddle is built with Prologo’s CPC (Connect Power Control) material. This material is designed to both help smooth the ride with its cushioning and hold your read end in place with its use of grippy material.
Once you get back to transition, the front of the TGALE includes a built-in transition hook.
Out back is room for the U-CAGE storage system that allows you to carry either one or two cages. Prologo tells us the U-CAGE system was designed with aerodynamics in mind, including trips to the wind tunnel to refine its shape.
On the floor we saw bikes from both Kestrel and Orbea featuring the TGALE as standard equipment, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see some more pop up during 2016.
Stay tuned to AeroGeeks.com in 2016 for our full on review of the TGALE, including time with the U-CAGE where we can weigh it, ride it, and get to really know if the TGALE is a friend we want to keep seeing on a regular basis.
