I bought the Prologo Kappa 2 Saddle back in May, but thought I’d give it a good try out before reviewing it.
Taking a step back, all I’d ever ridden were Fizik saddles, the Ardea on my recently sold BMC Roadracer SL01 and an Arione R5 Manganese on a recently acquired BMC Teammachine SLR01 (2017).
Both saddles were as hard as surfboards with no give whatsoever, least ways that’s what it felt like to my admittedly boney arse. 40/50 miles into a ride and I’d be constantly getting out of the saddle to alleviate the discomfort. This couldn’t go on.
Saddles are so personal and replacing one shouldn’t be rushed. With that in mind, I asked around. In all honesty I didn’t want to spend a fortune, but neither did I want to buy a cheap mistake. A number of my cycling buddies were using Prologo saddles and claiming they were very comfortable. Another saddle that came across my horizon were the Selle Italia ones. However, trying to find one under £100 was proving a challenge, so I focussed on the Prologo.
Eventually, I came across the Prologo Kappa 2 saddle and at a very competitive price I went for it. Of course, not being able to go on a 50 mile test ride means it was a gamble – but one that paid off.
There really is no comparison comfort-wise, the Prologo wins hands down. I’ve done 70-80 mile rides on it several times and I’m delighted with it, although I want to get into audaxes where I could be doing 186 miles in a day on two consecutive days, – time will tell. So, unless you’re a 600km audaxer you can take this review as very positive.
