I'm absolutely thrilled about this saddle. I don't have any financial interest in Dash, but I did have something to do with the design of this baby. And I can say that the final product EXACTLY what I was hoping for. 79g, and perfectly suited for TTs and Tris.

I've used the Adamo saddle for years, as it's the only one that was really comfortable for me in my aggressive position. Now there's a lighter alternative.

Looks like you could almost pee while remaining in an aggressive position. :mrgreen:

I think you mean "still waiting" ... look at the date of my original post, these have been selling since July. Granted, Dash is a boutique and doesn't sell a huge volume of product, but I'd bet that the lack of classified posts has something to do with customer satisfaction.

Shape makes sense, like a minimalist SMP this one.

That Tri7 addle looks like a dream to ride!! Weight is amazing for a fully padded model!!

2 problems; The price :( , and that UCI states the minimum length of a saddle shall be 24cm (rule 1.3.014) and this model of saddle is only 19cm :( .

The TT09 model from dash is 270mm but then it 'looks' like it has that Adamo extra 'unusable' bit (to make it UCI legal) that was ridiculed in the Tri7's write up. TT09 weighs in at less than a third of the Adamo saddles but is over 4 times the price :(.

Nice products from Dash :D but looks like my hard earned is staying in my pocket this time.

Yeah that's the one.

In my personal experience I tend to find that in that TT position it's not the amount of cushioning but the shape of the saddle that counts (like I said, for me). I just can't have any pressure through the middle so the Adamo has done me fantastically. Yeah it is heavy but I am not sponsored so this new saddle here is going to stay on the shelf for me :( . Very very very light still for a TT specific saddle.
