Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I cannot agree more with the review by Lee from Australia. The Vesta is fantastic. I've also tried the Selle Italia cut-out types and found them extremely uncomfortable compared to the Vesta, especially when leaning forward. Do not be fooled by the cushy looks of the Selle Italia saddles. The Vesta might not look comfortable, but it is ever so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous My 2011 Giant TCR came equipped with the manganese rail version of this seat but was removed before trying as I thought that my cut-out style Selle Italia would be better. Months later I thought I may as well try it on my XC mountain bike. Well wasn't I surprised! Comfortable right away, just a bit firm but with no pressure at all on the girly bits thanks to the channel running down the middle of the saddle. Doesn't inhibit the thighs when pedaling at all and flexes with you as you pedal - so much better than my old saddle I couldn't belive it and it had been sitting in the cupboard wasted. Goes to show you cut-out style saddles sometimes are not as good as the standard type. Liked it so much I bought the saddle in black with the klum rail as my original is red and white and clashes with the colours of my MTB(red doesn't go with orange- yuk). Have since put the original back on my TCR instead of the selle italia and couldn't be happier. Just remember - they are a bit firm, but still very comfy.
