This is my second purchase of this saddle, build quality is excellent and after a little bit of breaking in, you don't know its there,
I used to use a Specialized Enduro saddle. Of course it was very comfortable but I was looking for another saddle. The new astute saddle meets my expectations of 120%. A very comfortable and smooth surface even at long distances is very easy to change the riding position. I also like the design.
As with the Astute road saddle, you will be surprised on the quality and level of comfort of these saddles. The nose shape is weird when seen off the bike, but it is very comfortable once on; it allows you to "perch" way forward and doesn't snag on baggies as much as other designs. It also looks supremely resistant to abrasion, however I haven't tested that yet, and hope not to in a long time. Price wise, with the sale going on, it is a must buy saddle.

Best brand of saddle out there (for me). Can ride three times longer than the Fizik Antares with no soreness.
The best MTB saddle and great design.
I bought this saddle for my ATB bike, or maybe as cross connection between MTB and gravel bike. I bout saddle with titanium rails. I don't know why, but all the websites say the saddle is 125mm wide, but it's 135mm wide! The length is as specified in the specifications. I was not particularly interested in weight. The saddle is visibly made of high quality, top. Whether used materials or their processing. My bones are 10-10.5cm wide. My flexibility is high, I have no problem bending forward. That is why the front curvature of the saddle impressed me. Finding the right seat adjustment takes a little time, as always. First clear pluses saddle - great anti-vibration properties. Most of the bumps and shocks fit perfectly into the saddle, as if I had a finely cushioned seatpost. Also, the increased curvature of the back of the saddle is great, especially when climbing. Center ventilation works well. As the saddle is a highly personal thing, minuses will fall under it. Since I have a rather narrow bones, and moreover the dyke bones, or the space between my legs is narrower, I always had a problem with the suitability of the saddle for longer rides. If I add that I am very slim/skiny, the problem is clear. Despite the fact that the central memory foam is really soft and resilient, the problem for me is the width of the central part, that the foam is really very thin at the edges of the saddle. I had to tilt the saddle to the front to relieve the seat bones a bit. I thought I'd be able to use the saddle / bike even without the bike trousers, but unfortunately not. The middle of the saddle is very little curved for me, hurt. It is better than the previous PRO Turmix, but only on short tracks. Personally, I think that even if the saddle is only 135mm / no 125 as shown! /, It is more suitable for people with a bone width of about 11-11.5cm. Finally, despite my personal reservations, I definitely recommend the saddle. It is greatly made and done, clearly on MTB as the perfect one. Less on the gravel.
So comfortable I bought an extra one for the bike I do not own yet.
Finally a saddle so comfortable you won't even want to stand up!
The 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
Wasn't too sure about this saddle initially, but it is easily the most comfortable saddle I have used on my gravel bike.
Quite 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.
Well 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.
I 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.
Comfortable 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.
