Reviving this because I came in looking info about the Saevid saddleDWatkinsBSB wrote: ↑Mon Dec 31, 2018 3:48 pmNot grippy at all, slides like crazy. Maybe one to deploy the tour de france techniques of sand paper (or maybe something less agro like sticky bar tape). Dunno, slides like cray.WILLIAMDENYS wrote: ↑Sat Nov 17, 2018 8:48 pmis the saddle grippy enough? no sliding forward?DWatkinsBSB wrote: ↑Wed Nov 29, 2017 2:07 amI've had my Saevid Alien custom ordered with no graphics for a long time now. I've always had Spesh Toupes on my other bikes and the similarity in shape made me believe the fit should work, and it did!
There is a fair bit of flex on the wings (as you'd expect), meaning that for it works just fine with me on those 4-6 hours ride. Not to say saddles with no padding don't need a little getting used to (because for me it did).
Fire away if you have any other questions!
However, on the point to reduce friction in non-padded carbon saddles:
There are non residual tapes that are used by film and photo studios which are matt and have a texture to them that will not damage bibs.
They are not cheap because of those two properties (non reside, matt) but they can be found.
