- New Saddle Time – For The Skinny Derrière
I want something shape/size wise like a fizik gobi xm but stiffer/more rigid with little to no flex
ive got a spoon on at the mo, but its a little to wide for my skinny bum
im now on my 3rd gobi in about 1.5years, 2 cracked and one currently the saddle cover has literally peeled off all over and its creaking!
so im not keen at all on spending/wasting more money on them, plus i was beginning to dislike the armchair/wallowy feel of it, BUT the shape suits me really well
so what other saddles out there are like the gobi shape wise, but nice and solid/firm like the charge spoon?Posted 4 years agoneninjaMember
I use Gobi saddles but fitted a Syncros XR1.0 to the XC bike because I had the opportunity to get it really cheaply. It took a few rides to get comfy but is now my favourite.
It’s pretty narrow and has very firm thin padding but is comfy for all day rides. If I’m seated for long periods on the Gobi I get numb nuts but not on the Syncros.Posted 4 years agoianfitzMember
I’m slender of rear and have found Planet X team ti rails to be comfy. It’s not really an mtb saddle as it has a fabric strip down the centre. But I’ve used it on my mtb for 2 years plus.
Also have a superstar race sadde, carbon rails very light. I find both equally comfy although different shapes.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve managed to borrow a demo sdg blender rl! It looks similar to a fizik tundra 2 and seems more racy, ie flat and longish and pretty hard with less padding, which Im after!
I also put it side to side next to a gobi and it’s got a very similar shape so hopefully it will fit the same/Similar to that as I like the shape of the gobi
Ill report back as ill be testing it tomoz night!Posted 4 years ago
Exactly how I’d sum the spoon up, it’s ok and rideable but just not right
The gobi however was right size wise for my butt, but not so great in the wear, wollowy/armchair feel etc etc
This blender does look ‘right’ so fingers crossed it will be a good saddle, well no harm in trying it as its a demoPosted 4 years ago
