ISM has been working with the World’s best professional cyclists for several years. The Attack is our newest road racing saddle. We have narrowed the transition from front to back to 110mm to allow for better rider body movement. The central channel has also been lengthened to maximize and maintain blood flow and comfort in a more slack position. In fact, blood flow testing proved the best we’ve ever had. Comfort, Power, and Performance. The Attack gets you there.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mainediver218 Great High Performance Saddle
I'm 190cm, 92kg, log in excess of 12,000 km/yr, and a typical ride is 60-160km. I bought this to replace and ISM Adamo Podium saddle that I had mounted on my Trek Madone 6.9SSL for a couple of years that I was pretty happy with. The Attack, though billed as a more high performance saddle, is more comfortable than the Podium. It's a bit narrower and frankly feels a bit more "cushy" and complaint vs. my old Podium. I find it easy to move around on and comfortable seated climbing or down on the drops hammering hard in "TT" mode. I've done up to 190km rides on this, so 5-6 hours continuously on the bike and found it to be very comfortable. Saddles are very personal things so finding one that "fits" your body structure and riding position/style is always a bit of trial and error. I've put about 2,000 km on this new Attack so far and am very pleased with it. I like it better than the Podium it replaced and the Fizik Kurve (Snake) which is my other favorite.

My stock seat (length 260, width 130). Can I use this seat for freeriding, cross-country? ISM Adamo Breakaway Saddle as you said, you do not advise because of the large size as compared with the stock saddle. Thank you!
