Readying yourself for the upcoming XC race season usually involves taking an inventory of every component on your lean race build, seeing if there are any extra grams hiding where you don't want them. If your attention zeros in on your saddle, whether for its lack of comfort or its bulging waistline, swap it out for the Syncros XR1. 0 Carbon SL Saddle. With a newly updated high-modulus carbon shell, the XR1. 0 SL has weightlessness in mind. Its carbon shell absorbs vibrations and offers consistent rigidity, while saving weight over less expensive options. Syncros tops the shell with just enough Superlight EVA padding to prevent it from feeling like a medieval torture device, along with a tough microfiber cover to protect its internals from the elements. All of this sits atop oversized 7x9mm carbon fiber rails, which dampen vibrations from bumpy, rutted trails while eliminating weight compared to their heavier siblings. A central pressure-relief channel helps evenly distribute pressure in your nether regions, and Syncros gives you the choice between narrow and wide options so you can make sure you're getting a fit that'll be comfortable and supportive for the long haul.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
