G Clarke Yep, saddles are a very personal thing, that you can only gauge by trial and error. For years, I rode the Selle Italia Turbo. Found it great up to about 4 hours, then not so good. Then tried a cheap Chinese carbon saddle. OK, but no better than the Selle. So I tried the 142mm Fabric Elite Shallow. I find it not as immediately comfortable as the Selle, but better than the Chi. Have only done rides to 85 Km at the moment, and it seems to be working out. I will update review when I get some longer rides done.
Mr Marcelino Firm but comfortable. Suits my prefered riding posture. Overseas shipping was fast.
Mr de Abreu Excellent comfort levels with improved sitbone dynamics which is why I ordered this saddle
Mr Gelder Great saddle really comfy and at a good price
Mr F Switched over from Selle Italia SLR. First saddle with a cutout down the middle. So far so good
sinnett177 Looks stunning for a saddle at this price point. But the comfyest I've ever ridden.
Scott783 I`ve put about 60 miles on my new Fabric saddle and really like it. No more presure where I don`t need pressure!
Frank After three twenty mile rides very comfortable and I’m sure it’s not broken in yet.
Mick Tested the saddle on 150 mile ride. I used a carved Brooks cambium C17 before and this saddle is more comfortable as far as my anatomy goes. No numbness!
A Casado - CA After the first weekend riding in the saddle, it's been a great upgrade. supports my bum great, and flexes appropriately. I appreciate that the padding overlaps the lip and is not a harsh edge that might dig into your side sometimes. Does what it's supposed to, and haven't noticed it too much after initial few rides. Plan to take it out on a century ride soon and will update then.
Jonathan Use this saddle on all my bikes, love it.
Mr Doy Best saddle I`ve ever used, changed from a San Marco Mantra which I loved and had worn out, this is as comfortable as it can get. Highly recommended
Mr Soo-Tho Great saddle. No more pins and needles in my groin during long rides. I would highly recommend this saddle to anyone who is facing the same problem I had and I'll definitely make another purchase of this same saddle when replacement is required.
GRS Very comfortable saddle, value for money compared to some other brands. Great service as always.
Mr Rayworth Exactly what I have been looking for in saddle and at a fantastic price point - looking at Fabric saddles for my other bikes
Jonathan Great saddle.
Brought this one as a replacement after mine got destroyed in a race...
Never had any issues with it, looks slick with the black on black branding.
Mr Tung A very well constructed saddle with good support and cushioning. Highly recommended!
Liam Really good looking saddle from a great brand. Saddles are personal but this one seems perfect for me.
