Nashbar FR1 Saddle
Updated for 2015 with a new, exquisitely smooth synthetic leather cover, the Nashbar FR1 saddle remains as ever a remarkable value. Featuring a central cutout and channel, the FR1 delivers a comfortable ride no matter how many hours you spend in the saddle. Titanium alloy rails keep the saddle slim and trim - a perfect complement to even the most featherweight of bikes. This lightweight saddle is great for training, racing or just cruising in the pace line on a club ride.
  • Supportive foam padding provides exceptional comfort
  • Deep central channel and an anatomic cutout help relieve pressure and prevent soft tissue compression
  • Synthetic leather cover is durable and waterproof
  • Titanium alloy rails are lightweight and extremely strong
  • Dimensions: 133 x 280mm
  • Weight: 253g

    Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

    I bought this for my 1988 Panasonic, which incidentally, has had numerous upgrades to make it a more modern machine. I occasionally commute 17 miles round trip to work, as well as weekend rides are in the 25-30 mile range. It didn't take long to get dialed in, there is a solid 5" fore-aft adjustment built into the saddle. The first ride (25 miles) was quite good, especially considering a new saddle. After a number of rides, including 10 miles without my bike shorts, no complaints.

      Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

      In the past, I always tried to buy Selle Italia Flights, or similar saddles, but that gets expensive. I bought my first FR1 2 years ago for a lightweight mtb because it was on sale for $19 and had good reviews. I had low expectations. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised when it proved to be comfortable, durable, and light weight. So I've now bought a second for a nice TI road bike I'm building. Hey, it saves money for better hubs, with no loss of comfort or weight penalty. Who's to complain?

        I'm a large frame rider and recently broke my Specialized seat that came on my 2008 Roubaix. Not wanting to spend a lot to replace, I began looking at the bargain seats. Much to my surprise, the FR1 had better ratings than many of the high dollar big name brands. When the seat arrived the design looked great, it was easy to install, it's comfortable and at least as good as I had if not better and I probably have not even got it broke in yet. RJ

          Comfortable Saddle. Purchased my first older model F1 Saddle over 10 years ago for my Road Bike. Purchased my second F1 Saddle in 2010 for my old Touring Bike. Used it for my Cycling trip across Canada in 2012, 8,200 plus klms. Replaced my Mountain Bike Saddle with an F1 Saddle as well.
          This newer model FR1 Saddle replaced my old Road Bike F1 Saddle. Not disappointed buying this type of Saddle again. It works for me.

            Purchased this saddle before touring NJ from the northern most part (High Point) to the southern most part (Cape May). 4-day ride and this saddle was wonderful. We had one day over a hundred miles in the saddle and it was perfect. A lot of guys running Fizik saddles on high-end road bikes... I was pacing right along with them on my Nashbar Cyclocross 105 with this saddle just as comfortable as all of them. Great purchase! Already had a buddy of mine order one!!

                  Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

                  Borrowed from a friend before purchasing. By far the best saddle I have tried to date. Worked fantastic for my TT bike, so I ordered a second for my road bike. No numbness or discomfort. I like the large cutout and somewhat minimal cushioning. There may be better saddles out there ($$), but for me this saddle performs great. Highly satisfied!

                    My Selle San Marcos saddle had seen better days and I needed an economical replacement. After reading the reviews for the FR-1 I thought I would give it a shot. It far surpassed my expectations. No chafing or numbness after several 20+ mile rides.
