I'm looking to buy this saddle. Anyone who owns one and can give some input?

Also interested!
Especially comparisons with the Fabric Scoop Shallow!

Yep, got one and love it. Super comfortable.

I'm only thinking of swapping to a Berk lupina to save a few grams....this is WW after all

I've experienced on this saddle before and found it overall satisfactory in terms of comfort, weight. However the carbon shell without cover would very likely to leave a mark while parking.

Thanks for the shove ;-) How does the comfort of the Berk compare to the ALM?

My butt likes it. Great on long rides. But its personal pref. It’s the only thing that survived three bike changes. :D

I've been using the Fabric ALM for couple of years now. It is very comfortable eventhough it doesn't have a cut out. It is also very nice to look at. I have couple of people asking me what saddle is that when looking at our SNAP.B saddle bag ad :mrgreen:

I like my ALM. I have 2.

Do not use on a CX bike. I learned my lesson on that one, bad, tired remounts killed it. Been going strong on the road bike and XC full suspension bike for a few year though.

I have the unpadded limited version of Alm Ultimate and it's great. Not the lightest out there but very comfy and looks is excellent.
It's a bit more comfy vs. my padded Berk List which is a great saddle too.
