Hello,

Anyone own both Specialized Power and Pro Stealth Saddles? Which one would allow me to get furthest forward? Ie. if you slam the saddle frward right up to the kink in the rails which has the shortest reach from nose to stem?

I have Specialized Power Pro on both road and TT bikes and find it very comfortable. I want to try and get a bit further forward on my TT bike but have the saddle as far forwad as it will go. The pro stealth ooks like a saddle I could get on with so I'm wondering if it could get me any further forward. I see the nose is wider on the Stealth so I might be able to sit further forward on the nose but I'm wondering how far forward that nose wouldbe in comparrison to the Power when both saddles are slammed forward.

Cheers,
Chris.

Have you tried spinning the seat post around?

Yeah, are you limited by bike adjustments, or by UCI regs? If its just bike adjustments, then it could be a hardware swap will get you further forward on the saddle you find most comfy. If its regs, then certainly, you want the saddle that will have the most forward (relative to the nose) usable seating area. If the latter is the case, then I'd also add ISM saddles to your list to consider, as they absolutely have the most forward comfortable/usable riding perch I've seen. They can chafe the thighs a bit after a while, but that is likely a necessary byproduct of having such a wide and usable nose.

I really like PN 3.0 and 3.1, but both gave me friction caused blisters at my thighs.
