Spy Shot! New Specialized S-Works Phenom Saddle Gets Shorter, Lighter & Slipperier
The upcoming Specialized S-Works Phenom mountain bike saddle was spotted on a western states rep’s bike and described thusly:
The nose is about 10mm shorter, and the cover gets new slipperier side panels for less friction against inside of your thighs. It’ll use full carbon rails and a carbon infused shell, giving it a weight somewhere “just over 100 grams.”

Currently, the top level Phenom is the Pro, so this one will (as the S-Works name suggests) take over as the top offering.
Word is it should be officially announced in a few weeks, but we’d guess mid summer at latest as that’s when the Big S typically unveils their full range of bikes and gear for the following year.
