I'm not sore about this one, good post OP!! Very HOT HOT HOT
Excellent. Have been looking for a new saddle today as I bought a new bike yesterday and the saddle is about as comfortable as sitting on a house brick.

Will check my local stores (yes we have two!) on the way home.

Cheers

That's Doubly Cheeky!!!
I bought the trekking one a few years back. I only bought it as a cheap temporary saddle to replace the horrendously uncomfortable one on my Carrera Crossfire, but its so comfortable its still on there now. Its also still wearing well.
They're a real good buy.
I'd have some nice memories if a certain person sat on me
I tried a memory foam saddle but moved on to a gel saddle as I found it far more comfortable.
Saddle comfort is not based on how thick the padding is. It’s all to do with sit bone width, type of cycling, distance, pressure relief. Having memory foam is a gimmick for me if I’m honest.
Typically these are only good for short rides around town, they spread the weight around the whole area which can cut off blood circulation and lead to way more discomfort on longer rides. A well fitting saddle should put the weight through your sit bones, the saddles that come with new bikes tend to be pretty good at this for most people (although they may need a week or so of regular riding to get used to), but if you're outside the range they're designed for you might benefit from a wider or a narrower saddle. Bike shops typically have a pad for you to sit on that can measure this.

Also, make sure your saddle height is set correctly! So many people ride around with their saddles like a foot too low and then wonder why it's not comfortable.

I think this only applies to the city and trekking styles which are to wide,the mountain bike one is much slimmer, the size is the same or slightly smaller than a regular branded saddle.
I bought one and it looks a lot better than the previous ones they use to sell with maybe a harder firmer foam.
The only way anyone can give definite opinions on these saddles, is to buy one and ride with it. Even then, what is comfortable for some, wont be comfortable for others.
The trekking one certainly suits me on my hybrid, i wouldn't have kept it on there if it wasn't. For my road bike, the Charge Spoon suits me best. Although some dont like those either.
Then i have Selle xsenium gel on the Ebike and a non gel Selle Royal on my folder..... Plus the saddles that were removed are up in my loft, being the instruments of torture that they were.
Ok bought it. I went back to a fairly standard saddle having found my leather saddle creating too many problems.

I previously had a gel saddle for my hybrid from lidl or aldi where the gel split into 2 pieces! Obviously not that SAME problem with this so here's hoping for my 9 hour road bike rides.

Pretty sure it was Aldi that had the gel saddles, i remember having a look at those and i wasn't too impressed with them.
Out of interest, which variant of these Lidl saddles have you bought ?
It is the one labelled 'mountain bike saddle', described as being 'also for racing bikes'.
It should be fine, being the same dimensions as the one coming off, bar a 1" shortened length.
