- New saddle time. Recommendations.
I have several different saddles lurking about, Fizik Gobi Xm and Bontrager Evoke RL are alright for a couple of hours, battered old Selle Italia Flite is good for about 4 hours but the one that stays comfy for time is a Charge Bucket that cost 8 quid, weighs a ton and frankly looks shite!Posted 2 years ago
The best thing to do, is beg, borrow or steal as many different types as possible till you find what works for you.unovoloMember

Designwise thinks that’s pretty much based on the Selle italia Turbo which I too find comfortable.Posted 2 years ago
That said the most comfortable for me is Selle San Marco REGALe like this…
Everyone saw the part in the OP where he said the Charge Spoon didn’t work, right? 😉
I sort of get on with the Spoon, and they’re alright value, but I’ve had too many that began to creak, or where the padding became not very padded very quickly. I went to a Bel Air 2.0 recently and it’s much, much better, especially in terms of comfort.Posted 2 years agomikewsmithMember

Answer one that fits, flat better than shaped maybe? Whats the discomfort like?Jef WachowchowMember
I am also in a minority where the Charge Spoon creases me. I have tried many saddles and thought I had found ‘my fit’ when I started using the WTB Pure V (fatty bastard weekend warrior edition).
My latest bike arrived with an ANVL Forge. Honestly the most comfy saddle I have ever tried. I now have one on each of my bikes.
Being super aware how subjective saddle fit can be, I would never recommend one, but would like to share my experience with a lesser known brand that needs more exposure as they are not easy to get hold of at the moment.Posted 2 years agobig_scot_nannySubscriber
I’m also in the ‘hell no’ camp for fizik or spoon.
Most comfy saddle by a country mile is the Selle SMP plus – but it’s got a high tail which makes getting off the back, and back on again without snagging a bit trickier than usual.
Second most comfy for my Arse is sdg bel air, although I have managed to snap the rails on 2 of them in crashes.
Third is a specialised thingy that came with my stumpy, but only if wearing my favouritest mostest comfy bib shorts ( castelli), otherwise my taint is rawer then fresh beef tartar. With capers.Posted 2 years ago
