    SLR on mine if that’s roadie enough for you.

    The main obvious reason not to is that the riding position is different – most people tend to sit a lot more upright on a mountain bike.

    I have a Fizik Aliante on every bike regardless of use – it fits my bum so why not?

    Used to use Toupes on the MTB, but they’re quite pointy at the back, which hurts if you crash, and I snapped several – the shells are relatively fragile.

    SLRs wear through in no time IME – I’d get through the cover in a year.

    I used to use San Marco Zoncolans on everything, but they stopped making them… I now have a selection of Fizik saddle mostly… But in answer to your question, no there is no particular reason not to use a road saddle on an mtb so long as you find it comfortable.

    Does anyone do this, use a road style saddle on their mountain bike? Any reason why not to?

    Tape on the nose of mine and worn through sides which I don’t worry about too much. No problem with the rest and functionality trumps aesthetics.

    Don’t disagree, but just pointing out they’re fragile, whilst the MTB version is tougher. That said, I actually didn’t find Spesh Phenoms any better and still wore through the cover, but they didn’t go as tatty quite so quickly. Bontrager Evoke has lasted much better though.
