    The gap in the middle is nothing whatsoever to do with weight reduction. It's to relieve pressure longer rides. Stops you getting numbness in a part of the anatomy where you really don't want to be numb. Some saddles do this by leaving a gap, like this one, some have a dip in the middle.

    On long rides, saddles like this are far more comfortable than the thickly padded spring types.

    I am tempted to ask why its got a hole in the middle.

    To relieve pressure on the area that makes contact with that region of a saddle. Or to allow you to take a narrow dump without having to stop, I suppose.

    Heat for the fart vent

    So it's not so you can fart easily without the need to raise a butt cheek to let it out?

    Never understood why people wanting to get & stay fit seek to have the lightest possible bike (nicked on sight), hard saddles & no mud guards. Proper club racers & aspiring yes but the 98% of other people nice comfortable sturdy sensible makes sense. Reviews suggest this saddle not need breaking in & comfortable which is great. Liked the red flat pedal deal yesterday too - that also puzzles me why go for fancy clogs & fittings when one is a very ordinary mortal?

    Surprised by how heavy this saddle is for its RRP of £170! Most saddles around that price point are 150-200g probably. Worth it at the sale price though.

    Yeah, it’s pretty huge as well. I bought one about 10 years ago for a similar price. It was fine for comfort, but one of the rails snapped after just a few summers. It puts me off buying another, even though I need to buy a saddle.
