Prologo AGX Nack and Space: the Gravel, Adventure and Cyclocross line gets lighter and wider

AGX, an acronym for Adventure - Gravel - Cyclocross, is the Prologo's line of ergonomic saddles dedicated to the gravel and all-road world, designed to ensure the right balance between performance and comfort on all types of terrain, even for long distances.

Compared to traditional models, AGX saddles feature a more flexible base made from new-generation materials, and extra 2mm padding formed from low-density foams. 

These features ensure better shock and vibration absorption, but without limiting or compromising power transfer even when pedaling off-road.

Prologo introduced two news for the Scratch M5 AGX and Dimension AGX models: saddles equipped with carbon Nack rails, lighter and more performance-oriented, and the new Space versions, which are more padded and even more comfortable.

Scratch M5 AGX and Dimension AGX with Nack rails, ready for gravel racing

With the establishment of gravel even in a more racing conception, officialized by the 2022 UCI National and World Championships, Prologo developed new versions of the Scratch M5 AGX and Dimension AGX, dedicated to professionals and all discerning race-oriented cyclists.

The new saddles feature the innovative Nack (Nano Carbon Fiber) rail composed of carbon fiber, Kevlar and aluminum filaments. A rail already widely adopted by Prologo for top-of-the-line saddles successfully used by professionals at the highest levels, from major road Tours to the MTB cross country World Cup.

These versions of the Scratch M5 AGX and Dimension AGX with Nack rail also rest on a new base made of Carbon Long Fiber (Long Fiber Carbon Injected Nylon), which can provide further weight reduction and increased stiffness to further increase power transfer during pedaling.

Weighing 172g for the Scratch M5 AGX and 169g for the Dimension AGX, respectively, the Nack rail versions are ideal choices for those seeking lightweight components, yet without sacrificing strength and durability. Key features for off-road use of the saddles as well.

Will be these saddles that will accompany in upcoming gravel competitions athletes of the caliber of Nicolas Roche, Alex Howes, Emily Joy Newsom and Lachlan Morton, one of the first professionals to be directly involved in the development of Prologo's AGX line.

Scratch M5 AGX Space and Dimension AGX Space, more padding and comfort

Prologo's innovations are not limited to the world of all-road racing, however. The AGX line gets even wider, with the new Scratch M5 AGX Space and Dimension AGX Space.

The two new Space models, wider and more padded than traditional AGX saddles, are ideal for:

  • cyclists with wider ischial bone spacing, who therefore require a wider base of support on the saddle;
  • cyclists with a high body mass index (BMI), who can benefit from increased padding for more optimal weight distribution;
  • cyclists simply looking for an even more comfortable all-road saddle.

Measurement of ischial bone distance and body mass index, are just some of the key parameters used in the MyOwn fitting system, Prologo's bio-mechanical system. The platform makes it possible to find the most suitable saddle for each type of cyclist through thorough testing that can be done free of charge at selected retailers.

Compared with traditional AGX models, the two Space versions feature a wider width of 7mm for the Scratch M5 AGX Space and 10mm for the Dimension AGX Space.

The thickness of the upper padding is also increased by 2mm on both models.

To maximize comfort, the new Scratch M5 AGX Space adopts the TiroX rail made of light-alloy steel, a material that has an excellent balance between weight and strength. The Dimension AGX, on the other hand, is available in two versions, with TiroX rail and T4.0, a chromoly rail specifically for the Dimension line, made through an advanced process that ensures greater lightness and unalterable technical strength.


Prologo AGX saddles with Nack rail and the new Space versions, are already available online and at top Prologo dealers.

Prologo Scratch NDR the ergonomic saddle specifically for Cross Country and Marathon

Born out from close collaboration with professionals of leading MTB teams technical supported by Prologo, the Scratch NDR is the off-road evolution of the already established Scratch M5. A new saddle with racing DNA, designed specifically to compete and win in Cross Country and Marathon races at the highest level.

Starting with the design of the Scratch M5, a multi-disciplinary saddle already widely used by professionals on and off-road, Prologo took requests from the supported MTB teams to jointly develop a new ergonomic saddle, still high performance, but with specific features for off-road.

The Scratch NDR was born thanks to the valuable feedback from the champions of 8 teams (Cannondale Factory Racing, Team BMC Racing, Lapierre Mavic Unity, Wilier-Pirelli Factory Team, DMT Racing Team, BH Coloma Team, BH - Wallonie MTB and Cannondale MTB Professional Team), who collaborated with Prologo to improve the new saddle model, testing in race the solutions specifically designed to overcome the steepest climbs of XC circuits and the long climbs of Marathon courses.

Designed to face all kinds of climbs

The Scratch NDR inherits from the Scratch family the compact dimensions (250mm x 140mm) and the Multi Sector System technology: different mapped and separated zones that work autonomously adapting to all phases of pedaling and different positions of the rider. There are 3 zones in the new model, with specific features and functions for XC and Marathon disciplines.

The two lateral-posterior sections, are designed to provide more stability and comfort when pedaling in a backward position on long climbs. The variable-density EVA foam padding is 3mm thicker in the rear section to provide maximum support. The cover of these sections is completely smooth, making it easier to move out of the saddle.

The innovative center-front section, on the other hand, is specially designed to tackle the steepest and most technical uphill passages, thanks to a large flat surface that provides a comfortable base of support even when it is necessary to pedal on the nose of the saddle. The cover features a horizontally textured Grip Cover in this section to maximize grip and help maintain a forward position on the saddle.

Anatomical shape for off-road disciplines

The anatomical shape of the new Scratch NDR has been redesigned to suit off-road disciplines, setting back the "anatomical center" by 5mm to emphasize the T-shape of the Scratch models. This solution increases the biker's freedom of movement, allowing him or her to easily vary the position in the saddle according to the type of trail being tackled.

Shifting the anatomical center also makes pedaling in the rearward position, typical when tackling long climbs, more comfortable and performant. In fact, the biker's weight is discharged toward the rear of the saddle, right on the two sections with increased padding where the ischial bones rest.

Closed saddle with Active Base System

In order to provide a more coveted, flatter bearing surface in the center-front section, the Scratch NDR does not have a central drain channel. A solution that makes the saddle more comfortable when pedaling on the toe and offers more protection against any dirt and mud from the rear wheel.

The base of the new saddle is made of long-fiber carbon, a material that provides the right compression between stiffness and vibration absorption. In the center of the base, there is Prologo's characteristic Active Base System: a hole, underneath the padding, that allows for additional pressure relief and thus increases comfort while pedaling; thus combining the advantages of a saddle with a relief channel with the benefits of a closed saddle.

Different rails for different needs

For more performance-oriented bikers who seek a stiff saddle and the ultimate in lightness, the Scratch NDR is available in a version with Nack (Nano Carbon Fiber) rail composed of carbon fiber, Kevlar and aluminum filaments. A rail already widely adopted by Prologo for all top-of-the-line models, which reduces the saddle's overall weight to 166 g.

For those looking for more comfort, however, a second version is available, weighing 217gr, with TiroX rail made of light alloy steel, a material with an excellent balance between weight and strength, giving the saddle less stiffness and superior vibration absorption.

Prologo Flying F15H, the world's lightest and most aerodynamic saddle.

We had an ambitious goal, to design an ultra-light saddle that could defy the wind. We have not only succeeded, but we've outdone ourselves, making an innovative product that is affordable for everyone.

Revolutionary design

The new saddle was born from the design of the Prologo Scratch M5, an already established multi-disciplinary model, that in just few years has already achieved the major international victories on the road and off-road.

However, the design has been completely revolutionized, introducing for the first time in the market:

  • a monocoque base with an ultra-flat shape, able to reduce the drag coefficient almost to zero;
  • a new innovative and minimalist rail, fully integrated.

Cutting-edge materials for record weight

The utmost attention was also paid to materials research. The choice of carbon might have seemed obvious, but it did not live up to the goal we had set for ourselves: to make the lightest saddle in the world.

After several attempts, we chose one of the lightest materials available on the market, perfect for our needs.

The final result? We set the weight to only 5 g.


Having abandoned the original idea of 3D printing, we focused on a production process that was more innovative, faster and also less expensive.

A solution within everyone's reach, but one that no one had thought of before.

After months of testing and several prototypes, we are proud to finally present the new Prologo Flying F15H: the lightest and most aerodynamic saddle in the world.

The first one ever fully printed in 2D.

Technical specifications and market availability

The new Prologo Flying F15H will be available, for download, exclusively on Saturday, April 01, 2023.
