It's me or this Tune saddle is slightly bent towards the left.
Are this within tolerances being a handmade carbon piece?
I'm starting to freak out because isquio contact points are not at the same height by 3mm aprox.
The curved shape of the saddle is perfect for helping pelvic rotation but doesn't allow freedom of movement, so I fear this asymmetries can lead to injuries.
What do you think?

Used by me since September. Bought new. I thought if it could be due to wear but saddle seems stiff and I'm only 67kgs

Yeah, seems unlikely for carbon fibre. I've had noticeable assymetry after not much use with metal-railed, plastic bodied saddles however.

Once I ordered a SN saddle but I canceled it before it shipped. Long term reviews were very useful to see the obvious shortcomings.
Apart the asymmetry of your saddle which is unfortunate, this saddle is no more revolutionary.
Leather parts fail (specially the front), rails aren’t universal, no cut in the middle squashes your privates and the rough sides ruin bibs.
I propose to get rid of it and look for sth else.

I wasn't hating it really, but neither loving it. What I found on it that works for me, coming from flat saddles and testing some with openings, was curved shape, firm support and narrow at the front.
In long rides +3h and varying terrains I was missing the possibility to move back and forth more freely.
Any candidate with this carachteristics? Maybe San Marco Aspide? I would trade some weight of course.
