The Selle SMP VT30C is the compact saddle designed for cyclists with medium to wide sit bones for proper support over any terrain.
Thanks to a moderate amount of SSPU padding plus the SVT Velvet Touch cover, you know you're in for a comfortable ride. The Carbon-reinforced body utilizes a nylon 12 material for a tough build that won't drag you down. There are two versions of this fantastic saddle — one with a stainless steel AISI 304 rail, and one with a unidirectional carbon fiber rail.
The Selle SMP VT30C Saddle is built for versatility. From the daily commute to triathlons and traditional rides to e-bikes, this saddle can handle anything you throw at it.

My previous saddle had a lot of miles on it (even more km :-)), and the main rib underneath had broken near the front, so it was past time for a replacement. It's very hard to pick a saddle, since there is little opportunity to try saddles out, and everybody's anatomy is different. I finally opted for this one based on reviews.
Width is really important for the comfort of the sit bones; this one is more than ample, maybe a little too ample for me, but that made for a safe choice, and the cutout seemed right. I am pretty light, and the padding seems just right: Firm but comfortable.
I am just a recreational rider, and I don't do as much distance as I used to, but I have about 500 miles on it so far, and it's better than any of the saddles I have ridden in the last 25 years or so.
