Selle SMP Lite 209 Saddle - Men's
Built to relieve the pressure that many race saddles place on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue, the Selle SMP Lite 209's pronounced central channel eliminates numbness to reduce fatigue. The unique beak shape provides a flat base while sitting, but reduces pressure on the genital area. It's designed for pants ranging in size from medium to extra-large, the rear of the saddle has been raised to provide an optimized position during hard pedaling. The Lite 209 is made with a nylon/carbon composite shell for efficient power transfer and an engineered flex for comfort. The stainless steel rails also provide mild shock and vibration absorption. Cushioning over harsh terrain, the saddle's foam elastomer padding is wrapped in supple leather or microfiber (depending on your choice) to deliver all-day comfort.
Astute Italia Moon Pilagra Luxury VT Saddle - Men's
Astute Italia might not be the first brand that comes to mind when shopping for a new saddle and it's true that the firm doesn't have quite the history of some other brands, however, it does take its handmade in Italy stance quite seriously and its proven itself on the WorldTour stage under the riders of Dimension Data. As one of its flagship saddles in its line, the Moon Pilagra Luxury VT Saddle utilizes its self-supporting twin carbon shell to drop weight and reduce road vibrations so you'll experience less fatigue and more comfort as you dish out the watts during training rides and races. To help further mute road noise, the saddle features its innovative Spas System Technology which involves placing 2 pads between the carbon rails and the shell helping to soak up chatter.
The saddle's padding is provided from its supportive memory foam that's firmer at the rear providing an ideal foundation for the sit bones while being slightly softer in the perineal area for long ride comfort. This progressive memory foam is covered with a premium, lightweight Italian microfiber that's easy to keep clean and is soft to the touch while remaining supremely durable and weather resistant.
As part of the Star line, it has a rounded shape that deviates from the flatter Sky line of saddles available from Astute Italia. Additionally, the VT moniker or verta, meaning open in Venetian, denotes that this saddle has a center channel cut-out designed to relieve pressure in the pelvic area. And just like all of Astute Italia's saddles, it's handmade in Italy with the finest materials and exceptional detail that only comes from a company that focuses on premium saddles.
Brooks England Team Pro Classic Saddle - Men's
The Brooks Team Pro Classic Saddle is a simpler, more modern version of the Team Professional, which Brooks has been making for over half a century. The Team Pro Classic features modern tubular steel rivets instead of the large hand-hammered copper rivets made famous by the original Brooks Heritage saddles.
ISM PN 3.0 Saddle - Men's
Here to help you achieve your newest PR comes the PN 3.0 Saddle from ISM. This sleek saddle is built with both speed and comfort in mind, letting you go faster with more comfort. The PN 3.0 uses ISM's Performance Narrow chassis, honed from the feedback gained from its sponsored athletes to create a unique saddle design that really works. Its slightly wider 120mm tail and tapered-edge mold design is extremely comfortable and ISM claims it will literally “disappear” underneath you.
Like other saddles in the PN lineup, the PN 3.0 offers exceptional thigh and hamstring clearance. This allows for more rider body movement, as well as cutting down on chafing and excessive friction that can lead to irritation. You'll also appreciate the auto-racing inspired air vent chassis keeping you cool and allowing water to drain as you exit transition.
All ISM saddles, the PN 3.0 included, is nose free and designed to remove pressure from soft tissue which ensures maximum blood flow, no numbness, and a healthier, more enjoyable ride.
Blackburn Ligera Saddle
Whether you ride or race, you probably strive to build your rigs with the lightest components available. But light doesn't always mean comfortable. The Blackburn Ligera Saddle gives you a narrow, race-ready profile with a shape and padding that will make all those long rides super comfortable.
The Ligera is designed with a narrow 135mm-wide paddle area. And while it won't be comfortable for every rider, those with smaller frames or who enjoy maximum room for leg movement often prefer the narrow width. At 275mm long, it provides ample room to move fore and aft to situate yourself for maximum power transfer. The saddle features foam padding that is comfortable without being too squishy. A cutout in the center helps to additionally relieve pressure to sensitive areas such as the perineal zone. It also uses the design from the Ciento, the Flexure3 base, which helps to minimize the vibration from rough roads.
The Ligera is built upon titanium rails that also absorb shock while keeping the saddle a lighter 295 grams. A seamless cover ensures that you won't feel irritation from rubbing, and it also helps to save your expensive cycling bibs from undue friction and pilling.
Blackburn's Ligera Saddle is available in one size and in the colors Black and Silver.
Ergon SM3 Saddle - Men's
The Ergon SM3 Saddle is designed with XC racing in mind, but still provides the comfort and support needed for big rides in the backcountry or all-day endurance events. The longer padded nose allows you to shift your weight forward for more comfort and control on steep climbs, while the generous relief cup removes pressure from sensitive areas when you're spending long hours in the saddle. The padding itself is designed specifically for mountain biking, absorbing small impacts and trail chatter while providing a firm platform to put power to the pedals.
Ergon designed the SM3 saddle from the ground up. The ultra-thin shell used an extensive finite element method analysis to map loads and areas of stress. This gives the saddle its distinctive shape, but more importantly, it allowed Ergon to tune the shell construction for optimized deflection. The shell is covered with progressive layers of padding that are individually tailored to the different saddle widths. Every size option gets its own layer for rider-specific compression. Adding to the SM3's trail taming is a nose mounted micro damper. This damper, located in between the shell and TiNox rails, filters out smaller vibrations. The rails are hollow to reduce weight and allow 30mm of adjustment. The SM3 also has an easy-to-clean synthetic leather cover—just wipe it off with a damp rag.
Despite Ergon being a German company and doing the design work in-house, they relied on the Italian saddle expertise of Selle Italia to manufacture this particular saddle. To size yourself for an Ergon SM3 Pro Saddle, you'll need to measure the distance between your sit bones. Widths between 9-11cm should ride a Small, 11-13cm a Medium, and 13-15cm should opt for a Large.
WTB Rocket Comp Saddle - Men's
If you could have one saddle that works equally as well on your mountain bike, gravel bike, or road bike, the WTB Rocket Comp Saddle would be it. It's an incredibly versatile saddle that uses substantial padding, a flex-tuned shell, and a center channel to keep you comfortable whether your navigating a 30 mile backcountry ride, sending a hair-raising downhill, or embarking on a multi-day bikepacking excursion. The narrow nose and midsection prevents chafing during long pedaling efforts, while the thick padding and swooped tail keeps you locked in position for ideal power transfer and comfort on any length of ride. Steel rails offer some compliance on rough terrain while ensuring durability is never an issue.
Selle SMP Avant Carbon Saddle - Men's
In its over 70 years of saddle production, Selle SMP has learned two things, make them comfortable and make them durable. One thing that hasn't particularly stood out about the brand was any lightweight offerings, but with its newest carbon railed saddle offerings, the grams have come down. The Men's Avant Carbon Saddle is the latest version boasting carbon rails, dropping some 50-grams over the steel railed version, and it features a wide profile (SMP recommends your pant size be between 34 and 39-inches) and its highest level of elastomer foam padding. So if you enjoy long rides on your road, mountain, or tri bike and can get "behind" the above dimensions and padding level, your quest for the ideal saddle might end here.
The Avant is built with wide sit bones in mind, and with its strategic cutout and signature dropped nose, it helps to relieve pressure on soft tissues and places it on your aptly named sit bones. This is especially helpful when "on the rivet" and sitting further forward on the saddle attempting to turn the pedals over in anger. The cover features soft, genuine leather that’s long wearing and has embroidered branding offering a touch of elegance and some functional grip. The cover and padding are placed above the carbon-reinforced nylon shell, providing a sturdy foundation for years to come and blending lightweight-ness with the ability to soak up road chatter.

There aren't either many people who go touring that haven't considered a brook saddle lots of people talk about them some. People love them some people hate them that's much the case with every saddle that's out there so what are my thoughts after a couple thousand miles I'm a fan. Of the brooks i think it's a great saddle it's been very comfortable for me. Did take about 500 miles before these.

Let me put the lid back on it here I'm. Not sure what's in it but it's what brooks recommend on their saddles and. If you're gonna spend the kind of money. A brooks saddle costs why wouldn't you buy the product they recommend putting on it so i put that on there everybody's. Got their own theory about how often for the first couple of weeks i would put it on there about once a week both top and bottom underside now i only do it about. I don't know probably once every three. Or four months the other question that i. Get a lot of times is what do you do about in the weather well if I'm biking in its weather i don't really worry much. About it if I'm honest there are a lot of folks who do cover that you know have the cover that goes over their saddle if it's raining but i. Don't spend a lot of time out in the rain and riding if you do perhaps. And you're on a tour and you're concerned by the cover i have heard of guys who take a shower cap and put over. Their seat while they're driving like if it's on the back of your car or in the back of your truck personally i just marked my seat posts with a white paint. Pen and then take this just take the. While seat off and throw it in the trunk it's not a big deal the way i don't have to worry about it so overall am i happy yeah I'm happy i. Don't have any major pain other than the. Normal pain you're gonna have because you don't often ride enough and no seats. Gonna stop that issue it's its still. Stiff but it has just enough give to. Take a little bit of the bounce out i did make some minor adjustments i am just a little bit above level and i. Found that to be more comfortable for me i also am a fan of the imperial with the. Slit here in the middle i think it's a. Little less painful in my experience i haven't had to make any adjustments here or anything and some people say well. Don't the rivets hurt no can't even tell. They're there it's been a great saddle i think you should give it a shot if you haven't i think you would find that you. Might enjoy a brooks saddle and that you. Now it's just becomes comfortable over time and this is a saddle that if you take care of it truly can last you a lifetime so there's a link in the.

Selle Italia XL-R Superflow L - Men's
The XL-R Superflow L saddle is part of Selle Italia's off-road lineup featuring lightweight yet sturdy construction and a shape optimized for racking up miles and miles of singletrack with comfortable support. It has a forward-slanting nose for comfort while climbing, paired with a large center cutout designed to reduce pressure and improve bloodflow in the perinal area for long days in the saddle. At 145mm wide, this is the wider option of the two X-LR Superflow offerings.
With rails constructed from a blend of titanium and stainless steel, the XL-R Superflow L provides some shock absorption on rough trails while managing to improve durability and shed some weight compared to traditional saddle rails. The cushy double-density padding further mutes trail chatter and has a softer tip for uphill comfort, with higher density padding under the sit bones for more support when you're mashing on the pedals. The Fibra-Tek cover ensures longevity for years to come while helping keep the weight down, and comes with reinforced edges to protect the side of the saddle against impacts.
