The COMP level components are designed to bring competition worthy components down to a price that everyone can handle. You wont find carbon here, but you will find the kind of performance and reliability you expect from Ritchey.
The Ritchey mountain saddle line, called Marathon, in honor of the grueling endurance style x/c racing is a relative new line up for us. Our product managers in Switzerland challenged themselves to create a saddle they would use for traversing the rugged Alps while still looking svelte after a hard day on the trail. 35% carbon content in the base shell provides the toughness you expect combined with hi-density superlight foam for comfort make the Marathon series a true blue friend only your backside can appreciate.
Patented Vector Wing design dissipates pressure more evenly
More padded than the Streem
Superlight foam shape and narrow carbon fiber injection shell combine to make a new, comfortable performance driven saddle
Lightweight and durable micro fiber cover

Rated 4 out of 5 by Richie451 Very comfortable saddle with ideal shape.
Very comfortable saddle with ideal shape. CRC's listed specs are not correct as it has steel rails and weighs in at over 300 grams (not the listed 250 grams). Still very happy with the saddle but ideally I should have spent the extra on the WCS version which is what I'll buy in future.
