Whale-Tail, Love Channel, and Comfort Zone Lead All-Mountain Evolution

Valley, CA (CFEpr+) August 22, 2012 – – Over 30 years of innovation has
led WTB to create the latest in All Mountain saddles – the Volt. Ridden
to podium spots as the official saddle of this years’ Downieville All
Mountain World Championship, the Volt features some of the latest
improvements in cycling performance and comfort.

Volt saddle line was developed in collaboration with mountain bike
pioneer Mark Slate and WTB’s team of All Mountain Pro riders led by Mark
Weir (eight-time Downieville Downhill Champ) and Jason Moeschler,
(three-time Downieville All Mountain Champ).

“Whale Tail” design allows riders to push back and gain leverage when
climbing, while anchoring the hips when aggressively cornering. The
uniquely broad neck area proves a comfortable forward platform position
for extended pedaling. Coupled with WTB’s proprietary Love Channel and
Comfort Zone technology, the Volt delivers performance and comfort
whether racing in Downieville, riding on your favorite local trails,
competing in a triathlon or riding Levi’s Gran Fondo.

Volt is available in 133mm x 265mm and comes in Race (cromoly), Pro
(Nicro), Team (titanium), and SLT (titanium) models. The SLT version
weighs in at a nimble 220g that is not only tough enough for AM but
light enough for XC and road riding.

Retail pricing is: SLT – $150, Team – $130, Pro – $90 and Race – $60.
