Test results
April 19, 2017
I am 5'10" 169lbs tri newbie. I measured my sit bones on center at 120mm using the "sit on a cardboard" method and highlighting with chalk. The T5 was too narrow in the aft part of the seat--I felt I was almost rolling off the edges. The comfort was fine, but think I can dial it in some more to achieve better comfort for 112 miles--the T1 and T2 would likely be a better fit and worth trying. Unfortunately, TriSports does not carry the entire SMP series. The nose dimensions were perfect--I like it narrow up front. I have attached the specs of the SMP T1-T5 series I found in my reserach--it might help you lean towards one model over the other models. My previous saddle is a Fizik road bike saddle on a Cannondale R800. The Cobb Plus and V-flow were also tested. Aft part of the seat were comfortable, but I felt jammed up front with the wider nose and longer overall length of a traditional seat. I was wearing a long distance pad, but the feel wasn't right for me. The channel cut-out on all three provided relief, but I could not get over the discomfort up front or the rear portion not ideal. My wife also was able to try all three. Her sit bones were 101.6mm on center (maybe that is why she has had two c-sections...). She did not find any of them an ideal match. Her anatomy is described as an "innie"--see Cobb website for details--the other option is an "outie." http://www.cobbcycling.com/innie-or-outie/ Not all was lost. Using the demo program and talking to TriSports rep, I applied my $150 dollars towards the Selle Italia Iron Flow Large 145mm which is on the way. I will report back on those findings. On paper, it has the rear dimensions I like and the narrow nose with a shorter over-all length. For another comparison, my QR PR3 came with an ISM PR2.0 #40--the nose on this was too wide. I logged about 400 miles among the four seats with the ISM absorbing about half. Rear comfort was fine, but the nose width was too much. I tried to MacGyver the nose by zip-tying the rails to make the nose more narrow, but the flex would not fit into the seat clamps properly. Good luck in finding the right saddle!
Pros:
Narrow nose, lots of size options in the SMP series. Great customer service (five stars!!)
Cons:
Pricey--but this sport is pricey... No T1 or T2 models carried (four stars)
