    Charge Spoon is a good alternative and much cheaper

    If you’ve been plesaed with SDG prevoiusly why not stick with them?

    Have you checked out the Galaxy saddle? £49.95 with a Ti Alloy rail.

    I’ve been a confirmed bel Air’er for a long time and put one on the road bike straight away.It was horrible!!Too soft,too wide and too restictive to moving about on it.It was a total suprise that the needs of road vs offroad saddles would be so marked.Running a Prologo now which i would never dream of putting on the mtb but its un-noticable on 6-7 hour rides on the road bike.Live and learn.

    +1 for the Charge Spoon

    You can always get the cromoly railed Bel Air. I have the Ti one on my road bike and TBH can’t feel much difference between this and a cr-mo Spoon or other saddles.

    I also find WTB saddles comfortable, currently using Rocket V on my HT. A bit softer then the Bel Air but find it super comfy and is not too soft to be uncomfortable on longer rides.

    Sele italia C2 on my road bike, bel-airs mk1 and mk2’s on my mtb’s.

    although I’m odly tolerant of everything except the roadie favourite san-marco, and specialized BG on the pitch actualy leaves me bruised!

    For road bike try Charge knife, like the spoon but more road orientated.

    I didn’t get on with the Bel Air – I found it too wide to comfortably get off the back so went back to a WTB Rocket V which is what my bike originally came with. More comfortable and more of a “sit-in” feel. Saddles are just so personal though – Marmite

    I have always used these on my bikes and find them to be comfortable and hard wearing. I have tried other saddles and not found a better one, for me.

    I need to replace the stock saddle on my new (Planet X road) bike but before i shell out £65 ish on a Bel Air i just wondered if any one who uses these have found any other saddles to be similar or better for comfort and ‘performance’.

    Any input gratefully received.

    too late

    But +1 for Charge Spoon anyway 😀

    One of the best VFM bike components (limited) money can buy
