I find this saddle very comfortable. I have done a lot tours with this saddle including one 4,500 mile cross-country tour. And they wear well too. I prefer the non-gel version over the gel version. I have tried both.
I needed a new padded saddle after a Brooks saddle no longer worked for me. I looked for a similar width saddle and found this. I bought one to try and it worked great. I now have one on each of my 3 bikes.
For some reason this saddle is comfortable right out of the box. I have had three over the past 9 years. I replaced more because they started looking very used. So far everyone has performed great. I ride around 3000 miles per year.Plus, I have not had to use a break in period like other saddles I have tried in the past. I am very happy with this saddle.
Good seat for the price seems to be a lot more comfortable than the racing saddle I had before if you're having prostate trouble you might want to look into this. Although it is not the best seat on the market for men with this particular problem it definitely helps.
