Astana Pro Team is happy to have chosen Prologo as saddle and handlebar tapes sponsor, and today we’d like to tell you a bit more about this company.
Prologo was born with an ambition to become a leader in the saddle manufacturing, offering high quality products thanks to advanced production procedure: innovation and technology are the key words. As a brand, Prologo focused on two of the most important contact points, means saddle and handlebar tapes or MTB grips, but the Company has also other innovative products like the CPC gloves and CPC saddles.
In the first year of the Company in 2008, Prologo had the honor to win the famous Monumental classic race Milano-Sanremo with Fabian Cancellara and to reach the biggest possible success in cycling by winning the Tour de France with the Spaniard Carlos Sastre, who was riding the saddle model called Choice with an interchangeable cover system. More than 10 years later, this model is still used and appreciated by its users.
Concerning technology, Prologo has the mentioned CPC, a patented technology applied to their saddles and gloves; this material is used in F1 and in the military field. People loves CPC since the benefits are the grip and positioning in all the weather conditions, including heavy rain, shock absorbing, anti-vibration and also the improvement of air flows.
Prologo is proud to have been chosen as a partner of Astana Pro Team, one of the most important and strongest teams around the world, while the riders and staff of the team are an important part of Company’s R&D.
