I've had a couple of Ariones although I never found them truly comfortable, always getting a bit of numbnuts when on the turbo trainer or sore sitbones on long rides.
Then tried Toupe, Toupe Gel, Prologo Scratch, Romin, Romin Gel, wider Romin, Romin Evo, Flite Max Gel Flow,Regal-E.......the list goes on. None of them felt fantastic despite having had a bike fit and trying the Specialized assometer to ensure that my saddle position was correct and the saddle was the appropriate width.
After having my sit bones crucified by each of the Specialized saddles I'd tried I plumped for an Aliante, figuring I needed something with more padding. It was good, but I just couldn't dial the position in exactly where I could be comfy for more than an hour or two.
I'd always avoided the Antares as I knew a couple of people who had developed problems with their wedding tackle after using them and I also thought that I needed something with plenty of padding, but having tried so many saddles I thought I'd give it a go. I borrowed a test saddle and to my great surprise it was brilliant, and the first saddle I can be comfy on for 6 hour rides. I also noticed immediately that it helped me sit more squarely on the saddle and that I was able to engage my left glutes more than I had been able to previously.
So after hundreds of pounds wasted on trying different saddles, and countless painful rides wondering if I had bought another saddle that didn't suit me, or if i simply needed to endure the pain a little longer until the saddle was broken in, I've found 'the one'.
The moral of the story is however: Don't waste your time reading reviews about what other people find comfy as only your arse can decide that for you.
