Good day all,
Im hoping there is some keen smp users in here to give me some advice
Smp is certanly the way to go for me having suffered on various different saddles fizik aliante etc. As much as its worth, my sitbones are 140mm.
My local dealer in nottingham uk only had trial seats of the stratos, forma and evolution.
Ive tried each of them now as follows:
The stratos was ok, but felt a little "flat" and it had made my sitbones ache after roughly 45 mins. I found it best at 3 degress nosedown and 10mm setback.
The forma i found dissapearing under me but then i got pain in my groin/soft tissue on the outside of my pelvis bone after using it for 3 days commuting last week (30 miles per day). The groin seems to run outside of the pelvic bones- Does this suggest that its too wide or could it just be from my keen adjusting?
It happened on a ride where i increased the setback forward from 5mm setback 10mm and nosedown to 3.5 degrees.
Finally i then tried the evolution and that felt ok this morning for an hour however i did get my standard sitbone ache, zero front pressure but again felt a bit flat?
Im wondering where to go next. I was thinking that the dynamic may offer me the hugging shape i like with the addition of a nice bit of padding which feels great on the evolution?
The gamble i have is the smp dealer i go to only has the dynamic as a sale saddle and not a trial.
Or, could the composite help with a bit more of a dip as the padding is not there to take it up?
Would really appreciate your thoughts,
