The Bel-Air saddles are the modern classics - providing ultimate comfort, support and control. The Original uses a resilient Polypropylene base that allows extra flex on the edges through each pedal stroke and incorporates a Base Bridge for stiffness and ideal power transfer. The 2.0 possess the same overall technology with a Nylon base and the super light (SL) I-Beam use a Nylon Glass Fiber in a Solid Beam design, with a Honeycomb structured core for the lightest strength to weight connection possible.
The Bel-Air uses a Mid-Density PU foam, while both the SL and 2.0 adopt the lightest EVA Foam available and all are strategically designed with a Rear-Rise which helps rotate the pelvis forward and can provide extra support for one who likes to use the saddle's Optimal Rideable Area (ORA). The Bel-Air and the SL incorporate a 3/4 Cut design for perennial relief and the 2.0 uses the Peri-Canal – a full length channel to eliminate pressures to the soft-tissue. The entire Bel-Air series features a Nose Platform, providing greater surface area control and power transfer, while also designed with a Down Curved Nose for moving forward on saddle on seated climbs or in an aggressive forward riding position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NaasACE Best Saddle I've ever sat on
I was always an Avocet saddle fan, but the SDG Bel Air has taken pride of place under my backside. I found it a bit hard at first as I still ride my mid-90's Giant ATX every day for about 40-50 km and longer on weekends. Once I got the setup correct - after a number of adjustments and readjustments - I found this saddle to be perfect in both fit and form. As an elder rider I can really appreciate the "groove" as it allows the bits to almost float and forces me to sit correctly. i also found that my new (corrected?) body position has added a level of strength and endurance I didn't realise was there.
All in all a great saddle and I would highly recommend it to anyone who spends time on a non-suspension bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by helman Overall a stylish and comfortable seat
I must admit that I was drawn to this saddle due to the colour scheme. I purchased the multi coloured saddle which served to dress up my carbon coloured bike. It looks great.
I've had it for around 2 months now and found it to be more comfortable than I thought it would be. The rear of the saddle angles up a little which serves to keep your butt pretty much where it should be on the saddle. Perhaps this is why my other saddles didn't feel as comfortable.
So far it has held up well to my cycling with no clicks or creaks becoming apparent. It seems to have resisted dirt reasonably well too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johntheboy Fits my rear end
Have this saddle in one form or another on all my bikes, it just seems to fit my rear end nicely. Weather it's mtb or road it works for me. Top quality saddle had one of these for over five years on one of my bike and still as good as new hardly any wear at all. if you get any creaking just shove some grease under where the seat bars fit the into the saddle.
