My road saddles are the Aliante, so my comparison will focus on that. The Gobi has harder cushioning than the Aliante, but thicker as well. Similar pronounced flare at the tail to the Aliante. Definitely feels "harder" than the Aliante, but not in a "crushing the jewels" way, just that there feels like less "give" to the Gobi. Would I buy another one? Yup.
Great value as you'd expect from Merlin. Got this to replace my old Gobi saddle, which has lasted years (and is still in reasonable condition). Light, comfortable and good looking saddle. Would recommend.
Very pleased with this saddle. first time I can remember doing a mornings riding and not having a numb rear.. highly recommended. :-)
