- What to replace my sdg bell air saddle with?
I’ve been running an sdg bell air ti saddle for a while now and it’s the best one I’ve had but it’s not perfect.
It’s looking a bit tatty and I fancy a new one.
Has anyone used this saddle and found a better one and not gone back?
Ive tried a few recently and not got on with them.
What’s the sdg bell air 2.0 like? Its lighter but that seems to be because it has less padding.

I went for a charge spoon to replace my bell air when one of the saddle rails broke. Liked it so dropped one on the road bike as well as the MTB. So far done a 75 mile sportive and coast to coast without issues. As a bonus it’s a lot cheaper than the SDG although doesn’t come in cow print 🙁Posted 3 years agoscotroutesMember
I’ve used Spoons a lot and I think they are great VFM – but the padding “packs down” over time and I find I need to replace them regularly. Specialized saddles I’ve used are more expensive but seem to last longer.
I’ve actually just bought and fitted a Bel Air (RL Ti) and so far it seems fine.Posted 3 years agosleigh62Member

Big fan of the bel-air here too.
Had them on both my mtb and road bike use to comfort but found that on long rides … SDW or lon sportives they had a bit too much give.
Replaced the road one with a Maddison Flux … very much like the spoon but not quite as had … cheap and look good too.
Found it to be perfect alternative … and even bette long distance.
