Bought some Sutros a few weeks back hoping they would be a bit better than my Albas in that sweat drips directly onto the lense. No dice. The Albas are still much better at staying on my face and clipping into my helmet when they aren’t on my face. But it didn’t stop me from a little color match action because screw fit and function.

Wow 700chf for a saddle? What’s so special about it that made you make the jump?

In my experience Sutros won´t go with Kask Protone and Valegro. The part that goes over your ear, will touch the helmet cradle. I had to cut ca 12mm off of glasses.

What size helmet? Mine is a large and work fine with the Sutros. But I still prefer the Albas for fit and function.

Well, it's just under 500chf, but there is taxes on top of that.

Well, i have tried virtually all shapes and this is actually one saddle that has a slight difference to others, so i will try it.
I have the chance before committing, so i will do just that.
I have never had a saddle without issues, so if this one is "the one", i don't care if it cost so much.

Well that’s a very valid reason then!! I had no idea about those saddles. Down to the shape or they have anything special in terms of structure?

I don't know how the stiffness / flex will be. I don't like to say too much of anything before i have it here.
It seems it can be mounted fairly flat and the width is quite wide compared to road saddles.
I have focused mostly on saddles which support rami bones previously. C1 would suggest more focus on sit bones.
Custom department here have been hell since they have had this since 2 september. I don't even get it next week.

Was using a ornot/ricksaw, but between my out front garmin and Leica camera is was nearly unusable.

Attaquer is slightly smaller but the front access is miles better
