Mr FoulgerHaving tested 3 different saddles prior, all costing upwards of £135, this Charge Spoon is by far the most comfortable over club runs of 60+ miles, a bargain at £17.95 delivered!
SteveA great value saddle that seems to comfortably work for so many, including me.
RoryVery comfy saddle at an excellent price
kevinHaving used these saddles for some time now, it was time to purchase another for a brand new bike. And once again it was a comfortable as the first. This is a saddle to have at this price.
Mr JONESChose the saddle for my wife's hybrid, she thinks its good value and comfortable.
ButtonnineIt is said that if your saddle ain't right, then you ain't gonna ride right, after spending nearly two years on the saddle that came with the bike, I read the reviews and took heed, now so may you, bloody comfy, now a joy to ride.
C NBeen using Spoons for years now, great comfy saddle for general road and MTB use, not the lightest in the world but good quality. Great price on Merlin at the time of purchase and arrived quickly.
Mr SteeleGreat saddles, I've recently bought three for my two bikes and one for my dads, good price and lasts long enough (my previous spoon lasted three years at least) and suits my backside much better than the pricey saddle it's replaced (just wasn't getting any more comfortable no matter how much I tried to get on with it).
charlesGlorious saddle in terms of comfort and looks. I'm a bit worried about the effect of the heavyweight and abrasive stitching on my bibshorts though. Time will tell.
Mr NeilAbsolute bargain, super comfy
DaleVery well made saddle, at a great price. A little on the hard side, but hopefully after a few rides it will wear in. Very classy brown color too!
KyleOnly one ride in but is comfortable. Faux leather looks great. It a great value
Mr EckfordThe cheapest, most comfortable saddle ever.
TomBrilliant saddle, I really liked the matt surface which gives just that bit of friction to stop sliding around on the saddle
Mr ParrottGreat saddle, have them on all three of my bikes.
DanielThis is a review after 7 hours of use across 3 rides. The saddle was easy to fit so no problems there. I was a little concerned about the seams which appear to cross the point on the saddle I would think were likely to rub but I have not had any problems. The saddle is wide enough but not too wide. I have found it be comfortable but could not comment on how comfy it would be on an extended single ride. Nice design and looks good
DavidReally smart looking saddle, was sceptical that a sub 20 quid saddle would be aesthetically as nice as more expensive ones but I was proved wrong! As for comfort it's also pretty good, 110k cycle the first day with it & felt pretty good. I'm optimistic that I'll be keeping this for a while. Excellent service from merlin, speedy delivery & appropriate packaging
Dr AldertonLike many others, I like the Charge Spoon saddles. This one matches the décor of my new bike and remains comfortable even on a long ride, unlike the saddle supplied with the bike. The price is also very good. I can't comment on the durability yet, but my other Spoon saddle has no problems on that score.
Mr JonesMost comfortable saddle I've ever used. Light weight too. Highly recommend.
MarkReplacement for original Giant saddle which I could not ride for more than 30 miles before getting a sore bum. For less than 20 quid and with good reviews this had to be worth a punt. Did a 15 mile then a 50 mile ride with no issues. Initially a tad hard but has since broken in and is as comfy as could be now. For less than 20 quid this is a brilliant buy. It even looks like a more expensive saddle than it is. Would recommend trying.
Dave ClarkeBought the Charge Spoon for my Kona Blast. The saddle is well built for the price, easy to position ....and surprisingly comfortable! Only had it for two weeks, so I am not sure of the longevity, but judging by the build, I suspect it will hold up quite well. Great value!
JohnOnly been a two-hour ride so far, but first impressions very favourable. Certainly well worth the money.
Mr GoodmanBought this for use on my second bike. Suits me personally. Light comfortable and hard wearing. No reason for me to spend a fortune on a saddle as this is perfect for me. Delivered quickly and well packaged.
neilA great all round saddle. Weight is quite reasonable and the cost is excellent compared to the same Fabric saddle at twice the cost.
Mr CusmanoGreat design and very comfortable. Very good value for money
MartinGreat value, decently made and just the right shape for me.
Mr AndersonComfortable saddle at excellent price. Already have one on my touring bike using for past 8 months - got another to fit on my hybrid.
JohnQuick delivery. Well packaged. Saddle was easy to fit and easy to tweak to adjust to get the most comfortable position. Only done one ride on it, but the initial impression is that the saddle is fine, unlike the previous saddle which left with aching sit bones. No signs of feeling saddle sore. Hope it continues like that,
AndyMGood quality, well padded comfortable saddle that doesn't add too much weight to a bike.
Mr RitchieA real bargain. Very comfortable saddle at an unbelievable price.
APReally good value for money saddle, comfy and light.
KingKronOne of the comfiest saddles I've ridden, and I'll definitely be fitting another one to the next bike I buy! And: what a great price!
Mrs CourtneyLooks good, right level of comfort, well made, good price and prompt delivery.
steveI have to say i'm really impressed. I've been had by all the major brands on this tech and that feature and the fact that it's half a gnats hair lighter... in essence this is an outstanding product at an outstanding price, delivered in a couple of days. Very comfortable and simple enough to fine tune as there are no real complications with it. I will be ordering some more for my other bikes!
IanGreat saddle at a fantastic price, I find this saddle super comfortable, a lot more so than saddles that cost 5 X times more! If you worry about every gram you might find the saddle weight of 280g a bit heavy, but apart from that I would save your money.
PeteI`ve tried several saddles and endured a lot of discomfort but have found the Spoon to be just right. It has just enough padding and is narrow enough to prevent chafing and hip spreading. I now have a Spoon on each of my bikes and highly recommend this good value and very comfortable saddle.
BenI really like the vintage look of the leather saddle although it is noticeably faux, really comfy but yet still supportive and should wear well hopefully!
JohnA classic saddle that'll stand up to a great deal of abuse. I previously ran Flite Titanium a saddle on my mountain bike, and although super comfortable, the thin leather cover really didn't stand up too well to the abrasion of wet, muddy shorts and wore through leaving it looking scruffy. Thankfully, the synthetic cover of the Charge Spoon is much harder wearing. Adding to that, the great shape and unbelievable price, the Spoon is my go to saddle of choice for my MTB/ Fixed Gear bikes.
Mr BaileySpent quite some time reading reviews and looking for a decent saddle, after the stock one on my Giant road bike was just too soft, and after trying a high priced Fiz'ik was getting numbness on longer rides. This brought me down the path of cut-out and relief channels, but I was still struggling what to go for! Hours of online reading always brought me back to this saddle but sadly stock in the UK was limited (surely that's testament to the quality ?). Luckily Merlin had stock (only place in the UK that wasn't charging double the RRP!) and it was processed/delivered very quickly. 3 rides in (approx. 130 miles later) and I feel like a new man ;-) My a*** has never felt so good! Highly recommended and an absolute steal at this price!
