    Power Arc Expert

    Delivery Icon

    We deliver! Just say when and how.

    The new Power Arc Expert expands on the success of our original Power saddle. It features the same channel and length as the original but with wings that arc down a little more for less hamstring/thigh interferrence. If you're already a Power loyalist, this iteration features a curved Body Geometry shape that better contours to your body. What does this mean for your ride? It means that you'll feel as if you're “in the saddle" and not on it. And ultimately, this equates to greater comfort and superior performance in all seated positions, no matter what kind of rider you are.

    Power Arc vs Power Comp

    Coming off a Power Comp 153 the Power Arc 143 rides like a short nose 143 Romin to me. The flatness of the Comp supports body weight a little more so you might feel a little more weight in your hands with the Arc, but my pedal pressure is 50/50 according to my Garmin with the Arc which I could never get with the 153 Comp. Your seat height will feel lower with the Arc. Would be nice if rail dimensions and maybe total saddle stack height were published.

    Huge Spec fan, but not for this saddle

    Subjective, as all saddles are, but this wasn't it for me. I prefer the shape of the regular Power. The Arc surely gives more room for the thigh to move without that bit of upper thigh contact, but it truly feel like you're sitting on a log and the pressure being all in the middle was not helpful for me. 3 stars because it is very well made and could be perfect for some.

    Own 3 of these

    I have this saddle on my gravel, fat and trainer bike and I ride pain free for hours and hours. I did the cardboard test about 5 times to make sure I got the correct width.

    Only saddle I’ve found that’s perfect for me

    Was looking for a saddle that wasn’t curved, dropped off/rounded at the sides, came in ~155 and had a shorter nose. Found this and bought another after finally finding a saddle that works for me. Tried several others but always missed the mark on one thing or another through the process of narrowing down what i need. This finally ticked all the boxes.

    Power Arc Expert a no-go for me

    Moving over from Fizik Arione as 2 back surgeries and getting older have taken a toll on flexibility. Really well made saddle that I wanted to like but just didn't work for me on either endurance bike. Simply too hard and I felt the cutout edges more than I would have expected. Found the holy grail (for me) in the Vento Argo Adaptive.

    My sit bones said NO!

    With the price of my normal road saddle up significantly, I've decided to give other brands a try. This saddle seemed like a good fit, but after many adjustments (this saddle is shorter and has less distance between rails and saddle than my old one); my sit bones are not happy after only 30 minutes on this. They even hurt the next day. I like the shape, but level 2 padding is just not thick enough in the right place for me. Could it be because my sit bone width is too narrow at 94?

    The Power Arc Export was not for me.

    I love my Power Sport on my Turbo Creo so I wanted to upgrade it. The Power Arc Export was not for me.

    I know some people are

    I know some people are brand loyal or brand averse, I’m not typically either. I usually want the product that is going to be the best for me and for what I want out of it. This saddle is exactly that. I got measured and tried two other, highly reputable brands but the Power Arc Expert was the clear winner. So much so that one sits atop all three of my bikes. One Enduro, one single speed and a road/gravel/commuter. Pick a bike, I’m happy all day!
