Okay for shorter rides then starts getting a bit uncomfortable
on 20 May 2014
Very nicely made saddle, well finished. I was initially very happy with this saddle, it's nicely shaped and is quite supportive, in the right places.
I bought this as a replacement seat for the one that came with my BMC hybrid/trekking bike. Quite hopefully until I took it for a longer ride, 45 miles mainly on roads, when it started to get pretty painful after about 20 miles. I think the problem is the poor level of padding, it's fairly thin and not strong enough to stop my 13 st weight (6ft 4) resting on the base of the seat. I use padded shorts and ride with the bars the same height as the seat, so reasonably upright.
Probably make a good seat when used more off road (less time in the saddle) or with a lighter rider.
I know saddles are a very personal thing but I find it hard to understand the rave reviews others have given this saddle.
