- What's the SDG Bel Air like? (compared to WTB)
I have been a WTB shadow V pro man on all 3 bikes for the last 3 years and always rated them for comfort but ordered an SDG Bel Air Ti yesterday as I demo’d an Orange5 recently with one on and when I gave the bike back the demo guy asked my opinion and my reply was, “brilliant saddle & tyres” (advantages)…….. I think he was a bit miffed 🙂Posted 7 years agoPaul@RTWMember
The Bel air ti is the comfiest saddle I’ve had. Never sat for any length of time on the WTB but can recommend the SDG.
Gutted that I went and bent it the other weekend. Not a fault of the saddle: suprisingly it wasn’t strong enough to take the combined force of me and the bike slamming it into the ground tail first after a log hop went terribly wrong!Posted 7 years agoCaptainMainwaringMember
Another one here for not getting on with the Bel Air. Had a Rocket V which I replaced with Bel Air when it fell apart, but never really found it comfortable. Bent the rails on the SDG recently and replaced it with another Rocket V. Probably try a Pure V next time, but they do look a bit longPosted 7 years agobinnersSubscriber
I reckon your saddle is the most important part of your bike. I’ve put WTB Rocket V’s on every bike I’ve had. I decided to give the Bel Air a go. But the relationship between my gert big lardy arse and the SDG came to nothing. They were just incompatable. The Rocket V returned to its rightful place in my affections and the Bel Air was banished, unloved to that corner of the garage with all the spiders.
I recently won a Ragley saddle. And despite it looking like an instrument of torture, Its amazingly comfyPosted 7 years ago
