Can some one help me narrow down some saddles that are softer on the nose. Since I have started to ride with my local team, and hammering on my rides, I been spending more and more time on the front of the saddle. I like to be a bit more over the cranks it seems, should I get a TT saddle, LOL

Please advice

Currently riding a Prologo Scratch 143mm

Soft nose saddles might initially feel good (like the first 5 minutes), then your junk kinda digs into the nose and then its all kind of hell.

Yup. Sounds like time to carefully review your position.

Soft saddles = numb junk = rather unpleasant feelings and performance.

Adjust your position and you will be able to continue using your racing saddle...

If you really want to try a soft nose saddle, I have a Profile Design Tri-Stryke Elite I'll get rid of cheap

For what its worth, the San Marco Zoncolan has a relatively soft nose but is not squishy when sitting on the centre of the saddle. Its pretty narrow though so better suited to slim hips.

one that surprised me. WTB Pure V saddle. They make many models of this saddle. Some covers have subtle sewn seams and some are perfectly smooth. Some lighter, some heavier. I have sewn and smooth on different bikes and can't even feel the seams.

i went to this saddle after riding on Brooks B17 for many years on many bikes. the WTB has just enough padding, smooth down-curved nose and a shape that just happens to fit my anatomy. i would have never thought so from looking at it, but once installed, i am converted:
