Anyone out ther tried any of the versions of this saddle. It’s been a year since it launched and there have been very few actual user reviews out there....... maybe the price has put everyone off?

I’m interested in how the shape feels, is it similar to an SLR.? Does the split rear actually make a difference to the pedalling dynamics?

I have it and feels actually great. The flexibility of the design and the large cutout prevents bum soreness and relieves my perineum off of any pressure. Overall I love it.

Thanks for the pics...... you forgot to mention that it looks good too......

How are the edges on that full carbon Model?...... I once had a SLR techno that had a full carbonshell and the edges were bib eaters.

Good to kno that you are happy with it.

The edges are rounded and I haven’t had any bib troubles and I’ve been using this saddle for about 8 months. The extra flexibility imo aids me during long climbs in the saddle.

Just a shame it’s so expensive to experiment with

Yes they are quite pricey and my suggestion is to get to know your local bike shop and hopefully get yourself a discount. Good luck!
