Just done a 30 miler on this saddle and can't find any fault with it. Comfiest saddle I've ever used. Looking forward to my next ride
Nice saddle, takes a little to get used too. Its a bit heavier than I expected at 255g. Good service from merlin.
Well shaped seat, takes a while to get worn in, but comfortable when it is. I have the same seat on both bikes now. Great price and quick delivery from Merlin.
My third Fizik Gobi saddle - immediately comfortable, looks good, light. Rides of 100 km are comfortable. My favourite saddle.
I've got various saddles on different bikes and was looking for something to replace the existing saddle on a mountain bike which was too much of an armchair for me. Fizik generally seemed to fit the bill in terms of quality, features and weight and the Gobi was chosen according to Fizik's recommendations about saddle shape based upon body flexibilty. It looks good, is fairly firm but comfortable and initial reactions are that it was the perfect choice.
I have been using these saddles since the "MK1" Gobi came on the scene and I'm now using the latest reincarnation of it on my XC bikes.Prior to that I used every top saddle that Selle Italia made and the Gobi beats them hands down for comfort. Don't be fooled by how narrow it looks, this is a very comfortable saddle and looks the dogs too.
FAB perch. Had one on the MTB, this ones doing great on the road bike.
This is the updated version of the saddle I already have on my FS - its so good that I have now bought this one for my new Whyte 729 - just the best most comfortable perch you can buy.
Really comfy, light and durable. Expensive but you get what you pay for!
Very good saddle after I adjusted it properly. I mostly do 2-3h XC rides (training). No problems what so ever. Feels pretty comfy, easy to move around if needed. Its pretty light, nothing blinding like full carbon 80g :) but still pretty good on scales.
Excellent service as usual from Merlin - the saddle looks amazing on the bike certanly adds a bit of class to your ride and is very comfy too!
This is a brilliant saddle, it has been comfy from the moment I sat on it! It is also strong and lightweight, and the clip system is a great added feature.
Good size and comfy enough for all day epics on my full sus. Not sure it would be so comfy on a hard tail but its light and easy to wipe down and so far (2 months) I am happy with it.
Not sure the kium is worth the price hike over the standard magnesium rails but other than this its a good saddle.
Very good seat. Does what it says. Delivery from Merlin very quick and as promised. Excellent.
A great off road saddle that is comfortable whether in summer or full wet winter kit. Still the best off-road saddle design in my opinion but lighter and with a more hard wearing cover compared to older versions I have used.
Not only that but the best price on the net. Recommended
Excellent saddle. This is the second Gobi I have and would fit to all my bikes. Long lasting, durable and the most comfortable saddle I have come across. Six other saddles fitted to other bikes and none come close to this.
This saddle is very comfortable and the padding is very plush for a slim saddle. It also flexes in the right places for more comfort. the only thing that stops this from being the perfect saddle is the extended rear that makes it awkward when you are off the back of the saddle for steep stuff.
Great value seat. Very comfortable. Bought this for my other bike as I already have one on my main bike. Great price and rapid delivery as usual from Merlins.
Excellent product and service. Good price and fast shipping too. Very happy customer:)
Purchased to replace my old Gobi. Better than ever with the new covering and lighter rails.
Super speedy service from Merlin as always and cheaper than anywhere else
I found the service Ireceived first class, the saddle arrived the following day having ordered it just before 2p.m.
Once you have got used to it its like you favourite chair.
Very comfortable saddle for me and well constructed. One minor issue is the stated weight is incorrect. In large letters on all their packaging Fizik state the saddle weight. The one I received was about 10% heavier than stated on the packet. I know it's not a great deal of weight, but when I purchased the Kium version I thought I was saving weight by paying the extra over the standard, when actually I saved none at all. I contacted Fizik about this, and they fobbed me off saying 10% was in the acceptable manufacturing range.
