Nukeproof Sam Hill Enduro Saddle offers ultra-low stack for improved standover

Love it or hate it, oil slick is here to stay. Especially, as the rails on the new Sam Hill Enduro Saddle wear it proudly. Colorway aside, those rails have been adjusted so they now give an ultra-low stack height to allow Sam to make full use of the space for the longest travel dropper possible. Let’s take a closer look.

Sam Hill’s brief to the designers at Nukeproof was this. He wanted a 143mm width saddle with a short nose, a cut out to reduce pressure on contact points, no sharp edges and importantly, he wanted it to enable a low standover.

For the latter requirement, Nukeproof needed to redesign the saddle rails to have a low stack height; approximately 8mm lower than standard rails. This would enable Sam to take full advantage of a long travel dropper post.

The Horizon Enduro saddle is, for all intents and purposes, the same saddle. It runs CrMo Ti rails and has a glass-fibre reinforced nylon base. The cover is a durable vacuum formed microfiber material that is water repellent. The padding is a lightweight air-form foam.

Pricing & Availability

The new Sam Hill Enduro Saddle will be in stores from September 17th and will set you back £80.
