Rated 5 out of 5 by Ciko Decent comfort gel saddle
This saddle is ridiculously cheap but it's unbelievably good for many everyday riders, commuters and tourists.
Be sure that this saddle is a comfortable sporty saddle. Saddle width is quite narrow as Fizik tundra 1 but stiff enough to keep your seat bones in their position without stress.
Very well made low priced saddle firstly.
Comfortable enough for long rides. This will be one of best and most comfortable saddle as a gel-inserted saddle. (They uses their special gel so called Royal gel. It's a bit hard and good for quite aggressive and long riding.)
Gel pads are inserted very tightly and those are quite stable and not getting hot.
The saddle base was designed as Fizik tundra 1 (not identical but near same.) So, stiff enough as other racing saddle.
The saddle base design and rail attached location can lower down and move backward the mass center so this is absolutely good to get many various seating positions.
ICS adapter is compatible with Fizik's other accessories. (but not all due to the insert hole depth.)
2 different brands Selle Royal and Fizik are sharing various saddle base design templates.
The saddle can be reformed very easily after long term use.
The side are reinforced by strong nylon fabric.
Actual weight is 385g in my scale. Not very heavy but quite reasonable.
