Without testing this from a LBS there's no chance I'd be ordering a saddle online. Width is 142mm (the only width they do?!) which unless tour sit bones happen to be bang-on just isn't going to be comfortable.

For anybody looking, get yourself to a decent LBS, have a sit test done and your measurements taken and choose the right saddle for your backside - saving weight means little if you're not comfortable.

If there's a specialized or fizik store or stockist near you they should have some seats you can loan with a small deposit to see how they feel on the road for a few days, much better. Plus with specialized (authorised dealers/concept stores/online) you can return your seat within 30 days if you're not totally happy with it.

I ride a Romin Pro, great seats.

Buy this and save even more weight:

That specialized is 134g and double the price, i do agree though saddles are best to try out, I just sold an sdg mtb saddle £32 second hand on eBay had planned to throw it as was the worst seat I've ever had, but the bike mags rated it 9/10

I have both the shallow and radius elite/race versions of this saddle, for me they are the most comfortable saddle I have ever used ..

Depends if it fits it'll be better than your favourite armchair on your seat post

My local bike shop refuses to give advice on saddles, quite sensibly really, you won't be able to tell how good your saddle is for you, until you're many miles into a ride, sitting on it, in a bike shop for 5 minutes isn't going to tell you how you're going to feel by the time you've cycled the 40 miles to the Cat and Fiddle.

I don't subscribe to the taking measurements idea, I've got had a saddle for my mountain bike that left me barely able to walk after a 20 mile ride, it measures the same as the replacement, but yet the replacement is the most comfortable saddle I've got, tempting enough to put on my racer.

i'm in the same boat, mbuckhurst, been reading reviews and this fabric scoop get the good feedback 98% of the time, but their are 3 styles, aimed at upright (radius) - semi race postion (shallow) and full race postion (flat)

i put a radius on a full sus enduro bike, its really comfortable, just got a adventure cross bike and opted for the shallow, did 90km on it last week in 4 hours, it was perfect (for me)..

it can be expensive till you find the right one.

Which is precisely why Spesh have a 30 day return policy for used saddles and many dealers will provide a loan seat for a deposit.

Could imagine after taking light refreshment at the Cat and Fiddle Inn you wouldn't notice the saddle on the 40mls back.

The reason they have the return policy is nothing to do with comfort or finding the right saddle, more to do with shutting out the competition, how many other manufacturers or small bike shops do you know with a plethora of testing saddles? The sort I frequent are those that rely on supplying a regular customer with 13 ball bearings for their headset at a reasonable cost, are chock full of those odd bits you need to get back on two wheels after a mechanical failure, and sell overpriced kit to MAMILs who have the disposable income to pay for it, they're not the sort of company that keep hundreds of saddles in the back, for you to borrow.

All high and mighty there champ.

Cycling is competitive by its nature, any LBS worth its salt will have the means to buy a saddle at trade prices and make it available for demonstration on whatever terms are reasonable, we're not talking a set of Enve wheels, we're talking about a £50 saddle. Once the new ranges are out, they sell the test saddles in clearance and in their lifetime will have paid for themselves multiple times over through sales!

Why the hell would anybody buy a saddle blind out of the goodness of their heart without a means of returning it for a no questions asked refund? If you would, you're mad.

Save the rest of your mother teresa and go see how many Wiggle loyalty points you have, like the rest of us.
