WTB Shadow V Saddle

The WTB Shadow V saddle is a high performance road racing saddle that is extremely lightweight and perfect for the serious competitor. The saddle features a Flex-Tuned shell, Comfort Zone cutouts and DNA padding, three of the features that are specific to the WTB saddles used to provide the greatest level of comfort while adding the least amount of weight possible.

The Shadow V is one of the smaller saddles in the WTB line as well as being one of the lightest but this hasn’t resulted in any loss of comfort. If there is a complaint that is often made about the Shadow it is that it is too narrow and that can mean it becomes uncomfortable over the longer distances.

The saddle features a dropped nose to give the rider’s legs plenty of clearance and the choice of either a leather or synthetic cover, depending on the model you choose, will slightly alter the feel. Also available in the line-up is the ProGel model which provides added soft tissue relief through the Gel inserts that fit in with the Love Channel technology.

The WTB Shadow V saddle is available in three different trim and price points and are, from most expensive to least: SLT, Team and Pro. The features and differences of each of the styles of the Shadow V can be found at the bottom of the page.
