After trying several saddles for proper fit I finally found one that's perfect for me. I ride long rides and the width is perfect for me and its very comfortable for real long rides. Still fairly lightweight too.
This is the best saddle for my style of riding.
I replaced an old Selle SMP Plus with this one. It has a little more padding and is extremely comfortable without limiting any movement. I ride relatively smooth long MTB trails on hard tail bike and this saddle is the most comfortable I've ever tried. It is 400g, on the heavier side but the SMP line is by far the best anatomical designed saddles.
This is my forth attempt to find a satisfactory saddle and this is by far the best yet for comfort given my BPH challenges. I've ridden this saddle a couple hundred miles with the longest duration of 3 hours and the saddle was excellent.
Had to give this saddle a try after a six week respite from my road bike due to prostate removal surgery. Researched the issue extensively and other cyclists exclaimed their satisfaction with Selle cutout saddles. After installing I went for a short test ride and instantly knew this was going to be a success. No discomfort in the perineum area during or afterwards.
After a 15 yr hiatus from peddling I finally got a Ebike and find myself doing the same rides I did as a 25 yr old but my 64 yr old assprostrate needed a better saddle this is it - awesome comfort and support where needed - buy it you wont be the least disappointed.
I really like Selle SMP saddles. I use the pro on my road bike but wanted a bit more padding for gravel. The reason this is 4 stars is that it has just a bit too much padding and the cover doesn't seem very durable.
Excellent seat, I replaced my stock saddle on my Trek for this. I'm a rather big guy (6'3, 200 lbs) and find this really comfortable. i tried other, more expensive saddles, but this works the best. I can ride a century with no problems.
I installed the seat myself on my Trek Silque road bike. I ride in the Appalachian Mountains moving fore and aft on the saddle. It is easy to know when I am in the sweet spot for climbing. For the anatomy, it seems to be a good fit for reducing any pressure on sensitive female anatomy. As a 52 yr old, it is all about comfort. This saddle work well!
I like to go out on longer rides and on a regular saddle will have some numbness towards the end of my ride. This saddle is more comfortable and I don't have that uncomfortable feeling at the end of my ride.
I know this is not ideal but I had to bolt this seat on prior to a century and had the most comfortable ride I have ever had. I had always suffered from pain, numbness and unpleasant after effects with other seats, with this one everything was pain free and functional during and after the ride. Well worth money.
Installed on my touring bike, and promptly headed out on a 3 day ride with no prior aclimation to this new saddle. Some soreness, .....and promptly went back to my Brooks imperial. Not the SMP's fault. Will give it a go on another bike...I'm sure it will be fine..
I recently bought a Specialized Diverge Expert and was looking for a comfortable saddle. Most of my riding is on road, paved and some rough unpaved with an average of 25-30 miles. Tried the specialized saddles (avatar & phenom), the fabric scoop radius (143 mm) and fabric cell (155 mm) and finally this saddle. This proved to the most comfortable for me. No achy sit bones. I am 5 feet 11 inches and weigh 170 lbs with a sit bone width of 130-135 mm. The only negative to the SMP is the weight at a hefty 485 g. Otherwise a very comfortable saddle with no aches anywhere. Highly recommended for folks with no natural cushioning and who like riding more upright. Also, a very good price from bikes direct and the saddle was delivered in perfect condition.
