Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.Rated 5 out of 5 by RollerDude Numbness gone! So with the previous seat I had on my bike (the one it came with, Boardman E4P), I could never get comfortable. Even just riding a few miles I'd have to shuffle around constantly. On the rollers I could manage 5-10 minutes before my entire undercarriage went completely numb. Endless moving of my saddle, post, cleats and bars made no difference. So I did some research which involved measuring my sit bones and looking up undercarriage numbness. It was narrowed down to a handful of saddles and the other reviews seemed pretty positive. Halfords had it £40 off so seemed worth a punt. I'm 6'4" and 95kg, fairly athletic build. Picked the saddle up from Cycle Republic in Norwich. Staff couldn't have been any more helpful. So got back and fitted it. Rails are shorter than the old saddle so I needed to swap my post with a spare that wasn't set back so much. First ride and I felt my sit bones on the seat. First time ever. Super comfy on the road. Don't really seem to notice the gel, but I guess that's the point. Then I went on the rollers. I've now done a dozen or so 40 minute plus sessions and absolutely no numbness down below. There may be better saddles out there but I'm not going to be swapping this one. 20 May 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by ana82 Great product This is the most comfortable saddle, after replacing the saddle on Stelle Italia can travel longer on my bike without pain 20 May 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Ordy Perfect Saddle Now I can enjoy my 100km rides without getting a sore backside.

After trying many saddles, including a C2 gel flow, I was still looking for the perfect saddle. As soon as I sat on this saddle I knew it was perfect. The rails are connected in a slightly different way which allows a very nice amount of base flex which absorbs bumps incredibly well (I would recommend angling this saddle nose down very slightly as the rear will lower when you sit on it, effectively making the saddle level). There is also a very generous amount of padding without going overkill. The width is in fact 146mm instead of the websites stated 130mm and this is perfect for 75% of cyclists. I prefer this over the 136mm C2 gel flow. The quality of the saddle is incredible, the cut out is perfect and leaves no pressure pain or restriction of blood flow. The weight is also fantastically light for such a 'comfort orientated race saddle'. It could easily be used for mounting biking or similar, as well as road cyclists or any cycling really. I would highly recommend this saddle. Pay the extra and get this one. It really is perfect from the off and continues to be perfect after many miles and hours in the saddle. 09 November 2014Rated 5 out of 5 by gixer11 Very comfortable Have this seat on all my road bikes.
