    I’m now on my 3rd Pure and the quality of them in my opinion has gone a bit downhill.

    My original Pure had some leather type covering but the new WTB saddles have some sort of rubbery coating which seems to crease up (maybe because I am a fat bastard) and my current one has got loose rails after about 6 months of use.

    Looking for something that is hopefully of a similar width and fit – was tempted by some of the Ergon saddles – SMA3 I think, but they get mixed reviews and stocks seem to be pretty low everywhere.

    Anyone switched with success from a Pure?

    Selle Italia Flite Flow any good? Its correct width for a start!

    The slr is nothing like the shape of yours so try and find something similar … i had and liked the pure years ago and now have a spoon Flat which is perfect . Plus they do a test scheme

    Specialized Henge saddle was also very good

    Used Pures for 4 years. Was in constant “fear” it would be the only saddle I could use.

    Then my last one was destroyed and I decided to try a Fabric Scoop Radius.

    Most comfortable saddle ever, Books included

    Tried a scoop radius and flat and neither seemed to work for me. The Henge looks good. Will see if I can find a dealer. If not another Pure will have to do.
