Rated 5 out of 5 by crossracer Super Comfortable
I searched for years for the perfect saddle for me. Everyone's bodies are different, but this one's worth a try. The sit bones are perfectly supported. The open channel is designed very well. No smashing of the small parts. The different thicknesses of padding are awesome. The padding around the cut out doesn't dig in and the nose seems to be a touch longer and is very well padded for lots of time in the drops with no bruising of the pelvic bone. Durability is fabulous. I have a few that are several years old and while they do feel a touch softer (which I actually like), they're still very supportive.

I have owned 3 of these saddles and after trying others I never look at buying any other now, comfortable, looks good and very trim.

Rated 4 out of 5 comodidad 100%
Con este sillín se acabaron las rozaduras y escoceduras que estaba sufriendo.
Es bastante voluminoso pero merece la pena, porque puedes montar todas las horas que quieras sin ir incómoda. Para mi ha sido mi salvación.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous very good
This is my 4th saddle i have bought and so far it is the best one. It is not perfect, i still feel presure in my private parts, but it is less than with saddles. I like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Comfortable, squeeky.
Mine squeeked too! It sounds like I'm riding a dogs chew toy. But, this is the most comfortable saddlle I've ever sat on and I've tried many. Bought another one that didn't squeek but it took awhile for the cheap Italian cologne smell to fade. I'll buy a couple more for my other bikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous A necessary purchase
After the saddle that came with my first mountain bike had me housebound for a couple of days, this was the first upgrade I made, worth every penny!! It is extremely comfortable, and after one years use, is still robust, and not a mark on it, I have purchased another one for my new second bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Comfy but squeaky
I bought this saddle for my new bike as it only came with a man's saddle. I refuse to ride a bike without a ladies saddle as it just hurts. It's a very comfy saddle for riding off road for hours. The padding is just enough to cushion the blows of lumpy trails and allows my sore back some reprieve. It's one of the best saddles I've had and I can't see any other brand having the same comfort.
There is a negative to all this though. My saddle squeaked. Not just a little, occasional squeak, but a persistent noisy squeak. It's to do with the material around the hole of the saddle. I'm not heavy but when I sat on the saddle it moved slightly causing the noise. I thought I'd rectify this by using wd40 around the underneath of the saddle.. It worked but has destroyed the glue keeping the leather in place. So, it's looking like it's falling apart. I have to buy a new saddle but honestly can't fault this for comfort. I will buy it again and try and adjust the angles a bit to see if it helps. If not, I'm the lady you can hear a mile off with no friends and a squeaky saddle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Best £60 ever spent
I just wanted to leave a review to say that I persisted for a good 18 months with the saddle that came with my bike. I refused to believe that it would make any difference and it was all a gimmick and I would just be spending money for the sake of it.
However, after my first ride I gladly said that I would have paid double for it if I had tried it out! I had no idea what comfort was till I rode this and I will quite happily cave to the notion that maybe the female anatomy is different enough to require special products from time to time!
