what is this?
The 2016 PL 1.1 is a new version of our very popular Prologue saddle, with updated racing graphics. Like the other Performance Long models, it features a full 270mm length, and generous 135mm rear section - perfect for riders who rotate back while climbing. Compared to the PL 1.0, the 1.1 has an increased level of padding - ideal for riding in thin triathlon-style shorts, or for anyone who simply wants a softer ride.
Like all ISM saddles, the PL 1.1 is nose-less and designed to remove pressure from soft tissue, ensuring maximum blood flow, no genital numbness, and a healthier, more enjoyable ride.

ISM™ is the brainchild of Steve Toll, an avid cyclist and swimmer living in Tampa, Florida. In the winter of 1997, following yet another painful bike ride with his wife, Laura, Steve sketched out a design for a seat he thought could eliminate, or at least reduce, the discomfort most riders experience on a traditional bike saddle. By 1999, with some assistance from his family, the concept was patented. That patent marks a significant milestone for an industry that hasn’t seen a major saddle change in years.
Over the years, ISM™ seats have helped propel Ironman wins, Olympic medals, Road Racing podium appearances, and countless age group victories. Pros and amateurs alike are finding riding and competing enjoyable again due in large part to riding the world's most comfortable bike seat.
Flash forward to present day — through hard work and tenacity, Steve has not only created a state-of-the-art bike saddle, he is also being sought out by experts in the cycling industry who want the opportunity to test and ride the ISM™.
