Don't know that model, but good price for that make - well spotted. Heat. Personally, I'm a bit wary of a saddle that claims to be unisex - biology and all that.

Ordered, good find. Hot

cracking price for low weight saddle

Thanks ordered.

is it comfortable.. ?

Ordered along with a helmet for my son - total saving around £85 off RRP!

Looks very like a Selle saddle that came on a BMC bike. It is the only saddle I have never been able to break. I used it for about 2000 miles as a bet. I lost. Get a Charge - about £15 and very comfy - see reviews on wiggle. I have 3 now.
Good spot though.

Charge spoon, can't go wrong;)

What saddle not squashy piles

Got a charge ....don't like it,had an old crappy thing that came with a Viking Ventura 18....miles better. Looking for another decent saddle atm

Would this be a better seat than the one that comes with the Boardmans Hybrid Comp?

Another vote for charge... they are bomb proof

How long's a piece of string. A question, no one can answer but yourself.
If you're serious about doing substantial distances, then get properly fitted at a local bike shop, it's all about sit bones, look it up. We all have different sized asses, so one person's sofa could be another's razor blade X)

Would either of these saddles be suitable for my Boardmans Hybrid Comp? is it worth changing or should I continue using its original seat. Thanks.

Not sure what saddle you've got but it's all down to personal choice really,if the one you've got is comfortable why change.... the saddle that came with my giant defy was awful, the charge made a big difference.

Another vote for charge spoon here too.. personal preference, my ****.. seems to like the charge spoon Spent ages buying 4 different saddles until I discovered the spoon.. seriously can't go wrong.. best saddle for the price

I have a boardmans bike and I changed the saddle as personally I didn't get on with it but I'm a woman so it's different. Then again my male friend has the same saddle and he gets on fine with it doing about 20 miles a day.
So it's just down to personal preference.

I just got mine, and it is not the same as the saddle in the picture on their website.

It is like the one they are selling here on ebay - ebay.co.uk/itm…187

will this be better than the charge?

Personally the spoon is ok for me up to 20 miles then the next 80 are pure hell.

Even after 10 years back into cycling my nerve endings are not dead enough to use it as an endurance perch.

Well I haven't tried the charge, and I rode this saddle only for like 5 minutes yesterday, but it was pretty comfortable - it's very firm as you would expect from a road cycling saddle in the higher range; it does look well build too.
