The TRK line is the basic model in the Strike Series. Made for those on a budget who still want the protections and comfort from what Selle has to offer. Selle SMP's patented STRIKE saddle arises from extensive studies conducted which analyzed the different positions assumed by a cyclist in the various phases of a ride and the constant interaction between the body and saddle. The design of the outer mid-section is shaped to follow your thigh muscles to maximize blood circulation and pedaling power.
Selle SMP Ladies TRK Saddle Specifications:
Dimensions: 272 x 177 mm

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adie32 THE best saddle ever
I was riding on a standard 'mans' saddle and after the first 10 miles, would be very sore, from pressure points from the nose of the saddle. I tried a different type of ladies saddle, but although this eased the pressure off the front it was so flat that I was in extreme pain on my seat bones. I had to revert to my 'mans' saddle and use vaseline.
I knew I needed a saddle with the cut out to relieve the pressure soreness but also a more contoured shape for my seat bones. Following some good advice from a cycling shop I purchased this saddle and have never looked back.
I had read that the saddle is wider at the front and had caused some riders rubbing on the thighs, but I can honestly say this hasn't happened for me.
The saddle takes a bit of getting used to as either side of your crotch sits on the saddle, but once you get over this you can ride for miles without any discomfort.
Probably won't suit gram junkies as it's quite a bit heavier than a usual saddle but for all you ladies out there that enjoy riding for miles, or commuting to work every day this is the saddle for you.
I won't go back to any other saddle, my husband has also tried it out and has order the male version as the cut out takes away the pressure from him too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fits Excellent saddle
The standard saddles that came with my two bikes were completely intolerable for anything over 20 km. I have put this saddle on both bikes ( a road bike and a hybrid) and it is brilliant. One slight niggle is that the nose might be slightly too wide but its not a problem for me and I can go for three hour rides no problem. If you are having comfort issues with regular saddles give this a go. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Denise the best saddle you will ever ride
I was on the verge of giving up cycling due to extreme pelvic soft tissue pain. This saddle allows me to ride vigorously for hours. I am fitting all my bikes with this seat.

Depois de testar vários modelos me adaptei a esse muito bem. Faço pedais de até 60km em estrada de barra e de asfalto e ele realmente é muito bom, muito confortável.
After testing several models I adapted to that very well. Do pedals until 60km (40milhas) road bar and asphalt and it really is very good, very comfortable.

I have recently taken to mountain biking but was suffering after many rides from a very tender behind - after reading the reviews on this product I thought I would give it a go - and i'm glad I did - would definitely recommend this to anyone!!
