Rated 5 out of 5 by tomkina very comfortable, good value
Very comfortable saddle. I bought this as I already have one selle saddle which has no uncomfortable hot spots for me. Very good value as it is 2012 model which doesn't bother me at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous really works for me
I took the plunge with this as the stock Cannondale saddle really wasn't a great fit for me. Suddenly, the bike was much comfier, I wasn't slipping forward, and, thank goodness, I no longer have important body parts going numb on medium or longer rides. This model doesn't advertise itself as having any suspension but it's very good at absorbing vibrations and filtering out unnecessary harshness, while still letting me feel everything I need to on the road.
Well worth it for me, and this saddle has got better and better - if I needed a new saddle tomorrow and had any choice, I'd get this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Comfortable, High Quality
I replaced my Selle Italia MAN with this saddle. My bike, a Rewel custom-made Ti, now looks like a racer with slick lines instead of a cruiser-look. And this saddle is a lot slimmer than the MAN it replaced.
0) Very beautifully crafted leather saddle.
1) The rails are oval, so buyer beware. I am currently using ITM Alutech 1 and managed to fit the rails.
2) Padding are just right. Although I haven't accumulated much mileage in this saddle, I feel more comfortable with this than the MAN (same pair of cycle shorts).
3) Somehow I get better setback range with this saddle.
4) Range of movement seems better. My tights are no longer rubbing the narrower nose, and I can move further back on my saddle.
5) Leather cover seems thinner than the MAN though. So need to take good care of it with leather creams.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous it's oval shaped rails don't fit all seatposts
well, I wasn't even aware that rails can be oval. My seat post has a side clamp mechanism instead of a vertical one and the saddle's rails are too big to fit...
apart from that, the saddle looks awesome, however I won't be able to test it before my new seat post arrives.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Good looking but uncomfortable
This saddle looks the part of a special and expensive saddle with its holes lined with chrome, carbon inserts and all kinds of bling, good quality leather and stitching. It's also very light. The only problem with it, is that you can't sit on it. Very uncomfortable, I think it's the combination of the width (narrow) and not enough flex and padding. Even on a full suspension bike this saddle feels hard after an hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Sexy & comfortable
I enjoy the smooth feeling even on a long distance riding off-road. The red color is upgrading even the perfect look of my Gary Fisher Hifi pro. Excellent choice!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Feels as hard as sitting on concrete....
Really disappointed with this saddle, It's so beautiful to look at, mainly one of the reasons I bought it as the yellow goes so well the RC black and yellow profile on my Scott.
Major cause of ache, no matter how much you try to adjust... the saddle is just so hard. Such a shame for such a beautiful saddle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Love it :-)
And it's not even on the bike yet.
Right now it serves as a sculpture - on top of a stack of cycling magazines.

Unfortunately we are not stocking the red version of this saddle at present. We do understand that saddle comfort is important and once you find a saddle you like its hard to change to a different model.
If there is any other saddles you are interested in and would like further advise do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
