Mr NeedhamSo comfortable I bought an extra one for the bike I do not own yet.
Mr NeedhamFinally a saddle so comfortable you won't even want to stand up!
GaryThe build quality of this saddle is 1st class, feels quite firm at the moment, probably needs some breaking it excells on technical terrain as it's compact design, gives you plenty of room to move around
CBWasn't too sure about this saddle initially, but it is easily the most comfortable saddle I have used on my gravel bike.
Mr christieQuite simply the best saddle I've ever owned. From the moment you unpack it you'll know that you've bought a quality product.. I have it fitted on my hardtail, it's comfortable on long climbs and on those really steep technical bits I found because the tip of the saddle curves down I could perch myself as comfy as one can be without the fear of getting caught when moving back. Other good designs I like is that it's shorter than previous saddles so moving over the back of it is easy. Also the back edges of the saddle is made of a smooth material and so no rubbing of clothing when that mud and grit gets thrown up.
BoontWell constructed and durable saddle. Material around the back does not catch pants. Good round shape, padding around the cutout slightly ridged and a bit odd at first. Padding is a memory foam which is very very firm and not sure if it will break in. The wings don't flex very much making this a pretty firm saddle that has yet to grow on me.
rynoI got it a massive discount, so it was great value given that. This is the best fit I have found in 20+ years of cycling. I was on selle italia for a long time, and still like them, but this is better (flite years ago, then SLR most the last few years). I tried recent specialized with moderate cutout, but they are all too wide. also tried selle smp, but the cutout is so extreme it really only offers one comfortable position, moving out of that makes them terrible. This saddle has the best width for me, combined the right amount of depression from front to back. the cut out is good as it distributes pressure better than a full cut out (all the full cut outs do is increase pressure elsewhere). The only gripe I have is it's not very long. They did that intentionally, which I assume is to help get behind it, but if you`re XC racing sometimes it feels like it'd be better if a bit longer to get on the knuckle on (really) steep climbs.
LeeComfortable good looking saddle at a great price. The foam feels harder that my SDG so was a little worried that it might be uncomfortable on longer rides but I'm pleasantly surprised, it's actually more comfortable so very happy. One word of warning though, I went for the red option which turns out to be more of a Fox orange than red but it looks great with my Fox 36 fork factory decals.
