Bought this for a high end road bike as I remembered how comfortable this was back in the day. Classic shape, good for hours in the saddle, nothing rubs and the surface enables one to move forward or back to respond to effort and terrain, but without being slippery. Just great, good value and still light enough with Ti rails. I may buy another for a second bike.
Love the old school saddles, no gimmicks, long and narrow and just enough comfort for and all day ride. And the best price in the world at Merlin Cycles.
Been using this saddle for for close to 2 decades. Works great for rides of any distance as well as every triathlon I've ever done up to half ironman. It never let me down. This is a replacement for my original which has torn/worn leather.
