Saddles?

(closed)
What are your favorites?

Also, I realize that the saddle preference varies for everyone, but any opinions on Fizik Arione v. Fizik Antares v. Flite 1990?

Selle Italia Flite is a good choice and I just like the older Flites compared to the newer versions. Specialized saddles like the Toupe, Phenom, and Romin are some of my favorite. I have yet to try a Rolls or Regal E.

Search "saddle" and lots of threads show up.

I've been riding around on a Rolls over the winter. Pretty comfy after an initial break-in period.

I've been riding the Selle Smp Evolution for the last 2 months, I'm totally in love with it!

I like my Arione. And 34x30 is way too big. Maybe 29x30, haha.

I like the Selle San Marco Concor Light so much, I've bought it twice. Great saddle and when adjusted properly, it'll treat your sensitive areas just right.

obviously 32x34 are the best because they fit the best and are the most comfortable/stylish, but they're hard to find so 34x34 works well enough with a good belt most of the time

ahhh idk guys, pretty sure 30x30 is the best, every time i put 34x34 on it falls down, and even when i wear a belt it drags on the ground

i'm a 32x34 man also. So obviously they are supreme. but so hard to find. usually levi's has them, but i almost always have to online order.

sometimes a 32x32 has to work, so my ankles get cold or i can show off my dinosaur socks.

btw i'm riding with a sell italia flite gel flow for long rides or a cheap prefix saddle for weight cutting/beating up. everyone's bum is different.

First step to any saddle buying: Measure your sit bones. Go to a bike shop where they have the buttpad to measure them and then go from there. This really is key and I learned the hard way that its not what style your saddle is but how wide your bones actually are

Fizik Arione 00 - best saddle I've ever seen. And also the most expensive.

I have tried a lot of saddles... The best one I have to say is a Vetta ___ (got it off of a 90's MTNbike) Used it for years. Sadly it was on my Giant when it was stolen, Have not found a saddle I like since. =[

I had a selle italia flite for about eight years that served me well. so comfortable. i also really like the new brooks cambium that saddle is so comfortable. i also ride a selle san marco concor supercorsa that is really comfortable.

You should find a memory foam pressure mapping system. A good bike shop should have one (if it sells saddles). It can give you a very accurate measurement of the dimensions of your ischial tuberosities. This will point you down the right path for the correct size saddle, saving you a lot of trial and error.
