Does anyone have this saddle? Looking for honest feedback. It's $400 and no returns. Light as hell! 125 grams.

I tried the PN 3.0. I liked it for rides up to 3 hours and on the indoor trainer. I didn’t like how there was no flared back like a traditional saddle for times where I feel like sitting upright on climbs.

I’ve also tried unpadded carbon saddles. While I can endure the lack of padding on my Bontrager XXX, when I went back to a regular minimally padded saddle it was a pretty huge relief...

I ride the ISM PN 1.0 on all my bikes. I love it! I can ride all day on it. I can't stand that it's 283 grams! I actually just ordered a 3.0 to try and I see it's claimed to be slightly lighter. How much does your weigh?

if you like ISM saddle.. you should look into this: 125g @ $465

plus they have a demo program for $50 you can try it out for a couple months and don't like, just return and have the $50 deducted from the origial price of the saddle. better than paying $400 and no be able to return?

Tried the pn 3.0. Padded. Felt too narrow.. maybe I wasn't sitting far back enough. I like the Pro stealth more.

I have the Dash strike.9.. the expensive version for sale. Let me know.

what's the weight of the dash strike 9? i'm with you on the pro stealth.. but DASH seatpost won't work with other saddles besides their own.. which saddle + seatpost would be lighter than my current TMR02 setup.

I'll have to weigh it again at home. I think it was about 135 grams..its padded.

The PN is essentially a Tri/TT saddle. If you're into Tri bike grams chasing mood, get something from Dash.
