I've only had this saddle for a few days, but I already absolutely love it. Stable,, supportive and above all comfortable, everything I hoped it would be.
I had read a few reviews of this saddle & thought it looked just what I needed as I prepared for the Prudential London Ride 100. After a 3 day training trip to Wales & the Ride 100 last weekend (in awful weather) the saddle came through with flying colours. I'm aware I've just ridden 100 miles and had 7.5 hours in the saddle, but otherwise I feel great. This saddle really is VERY comfortable & perfect for long days out.
This was a gift for my wife that rides every day and complains about saddle soreness. She just loves this saddle. Her ride average has increased about 2mph and she rides 20 % longer distance. I tried it once and was amazed and going to get me one also.
Fantastic - no more numb n4ts. I'd been putting in more cycle rides, more time on the road but that had me suffering big time from numbness to the point where such rides just weren't any fun. I did some research and went for the Selle SMP. Done a few hundred miles now over many hours and all has been good 'down there' ever since fitting the new saddle.
I bought this saddle for my partner as I have been using the ladies version which is extremely comfortable. He is very pleased with it and now we can finish a day ride on the tandem with none of the discomfort experienced with our previous saddles. Highly recommended!
I really like these saddles and this is the third Selle SMP saddle that I've bought. Can't get any more comfy than this!
Early days, but impressed so far, comfort and quality feel, looks good on the bike (which was one of my concerns about it, sad I know) and not too heavy....
This is a comfortable saddle from the very first ride. Designed for a hybrid, it was a little too wide on my road bike and chaffed the inside of the thighs. I now have it on my mountain bike and it is great. Thoroughly recommended, particularly if you have prostate problems (like me!).
I haven't used a lot of saddles but the Selle SMP is most definitely for me. I now own 3 of them. Good stuff
Am a total convert to these saddles, as I have them on all my bikes. They might not suit everyone, but if you are looking for something that may solve the numb ar53 issue, then this is worth a punt. Over 20,000 miles on one, still intact.
All I can say is WOW!! Fitted this to my Cannondale CAADX 105 after the stock saddle was causing major numbness in the nether regions. What an improvement, adjusted the tilt slightly and I can't believe how comfortable this saddle is. Padded in the right places and the cut out centre is just right. 2 hours in the saddle and no discomfort, I will be looking to replace my Charge Spoon on my MTB with this as well. Fantastic saddle, topped off with great service from Merlin, fast shipping, and well packaged.
Great comfort release pressure in front, relatively heavy due to steel rails a small sacrifice for comfort.
