Saddle of the Century.
The new Terry Butterfly Century with Poron XRD shock absorption is already creating a buzz and it hasn’t even arrived (our first shipment arrives from Italy in April). Designed to take comfort up a notch for longer distance riders, we’ve engineered a layer of Poron XRD shock absorbing material between the saddle’s base and foam layers.
The results are a reduction in road shock, thinner layer of foam and narrower overall saddle profile without any loss of rider comfort.
Additionally, we were able to create a wider cutaway than in other Butterflies, sculpt the foam for pressure relief and go seamless with a Lorica cover that reduces the incidence of high cadence chafing.
About Poron XRD
A patented material used in MTB pads, gloves and footwear, is unique in its ability to consistently absorb and dissipate energy (road shock), impact after impact, while remaining comfortable. At rest or under low pressure, PORON XRD material reacts much like a slow recovery foam (similar to Tempur-Pedic® mattresses). It easily conforms to the body and is very comfortable on/against the body. But under high strain rates (ex: quickly hitting the material), the PORON XRD molecules instantly stiffen, forming a comfortable protective shell and spreading the energy over a larger area, thus protecting the body from the impact.
