- Which Saddle????????
I know saddles are a personal thing as we all have differnet shapped backsides..I curently have a WTB Thinline Saddle that came on my Giant Anthem X2 that hurts after 10miles..
Has anybody got or used the:

Saddles are very personal but…
I've had, in order of comfort:
SDG Bel Air RL Ti railled
SDG Formula FX I-Beam
Fizik Gobi Wingflex railled
Charge Spoon railled
I would say all were good after being ridden a few times.Posted 7 years ago
The Bel Air was the most comfy.
The Charge Spoon is a bit firm at first but outstanding value.MackemMember
reduced from 60 quid to 18 quid, been using one for two months, its absolutely spot on IMO.Posted 7 years ago
I looked at the Fizik Gobi XM K:Ium when i was in evans cycles on friday..its very firm and £69 vs £50 for the syncros
I know its only £19 difference, but another £10 and i can get an XT front mech to swap out the deore one that came as stock..and ad some more bling 🙂Posted 7 years agoWhyte1Member
i had saddle problems for years that cost me a fortune
SDG Bel Air was very good but a little soft
WTB Rocket was a good but a little narrow
Gobi was to soft to rounded from side to side and to narrow
Selle italia slr xc gel flow would of been perfect if 10mm wider
Fizik Aliante XM Was a bit to soft
SDG Formula FXR TI Heaven like angels kissing my arse
The first ride was the Dyfi enduro with not a single issue , have since done the Welsh C2C on it and day 3 was 9hrs ride time pain free , and it's the first saddle that has not made my lipstick go numb .Posted 7 years agoFuzzyWuzzyMember
Got one of those Syncros ones on my Froggy to – I thought it'd be fine just for doing DH stuff but christ it's uncomfy (on my ass anyway). I just use Charge Spoons on the MTB although I think if I started riding regularly for more than 3 hours I'd look at something else as it starts to make itself known after a couple of hours. For the price though it's hard not to recommend trying a Spoon first (unless you can get demo saddles)Posted 7 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Everyone'll recommend whatever fits their bum tbh. Like, I use Charge Knives now on all my bikes, they're narrow and barely padded but I find them comfy, it took 3 days of all-day rides before I got sore, and I don't wear padded shorts either. Used to use Spoons which were about the same but I found them bulky, I'm very narrow so the wide tail of the saddle seemed to get in the way.
But still, if in doubt, try a Spoon- they're cheap, and they resell for barely less than they cost new.Posted 7 years ago
Ive measured my sit bones by sitting on a bag of compost like in the following picture:Posted 7 years ago
My sit bones measure 120mm so it looks like i need a 143mm saddle
looking over chain reaction it seams the sdg bell end saddle would fit 🙂
Cant understand why 98% of the selle italia's are 130mm wide..
