Great saddle

    Saddles are a tricky thing. Their either comfortable or very uncomfortable. This one works well for me so I bought a second one. It's a comfortable saddle by Fi'z:ik at an affordable price.

    Fits my bum

      Saddles are unique for each person and this one happens to fit!

      not overwhelmed

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      saddles are a very personal item, fizik makes excellent products but this just did not fit my but that well.

      Best Saddle I have owned

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Really cannot find anything wrong with this saddle have had many over the years, and this one coupled with my Ridley Fenix makes long rides that much more enjoyable!

      Uncomfortable design

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      My initial impression was not a good one - riding with it hasn't helped. The very hard plastic edges on the back makes quick cyclocross remounts precarious. Those plastic edges are limit movement (as mention in another review) when you shift your weight back. There are time when the fisik comfort will trick you into forgetting about the saddle, but then you'll move and it'll be reminded why you don't like this saddle. I'm switching to another fisik type.

      Not my cup of tea.

      This saddle might work for some, but the flared tail limits my ability to push back. I need a flat saddle. The saddle is otherwise comfortable, it just limits movement.

      great fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      This is a great neutral fitting saddle. With a few rides in, there are no hot spots and it is comfortable riding towards the front and back of the seat.

      Love this saddle

      Classic shape, simple design, very cheap. It's not the lightest but if it works for you, so be it.
