    Time Trial Saddle

    As much as I like my current saddle, it's not designed for the angle involved in TT'ing. My sit bones aren't supporting me at all, so I have to angle it down, which makes my arms work harder than they should.

    What're everyone's favorite TT saddles?

    Arione Tri. Nice squishy tip for the boys. I do 300 miles a week in the TT position and it's the best I've used.

    I had a Blackwell flow for a while. It was good, just didn't like it for workouts when I wasn't in the aero position. I absolutely hated the Arione, which I also had for a while. Favorite has been the Selle SLR TT. Might try the Specialized for kicks...

    Hi,

    I bought a FSA Vision Trigel Elite saddle sight unseen:



    The only way I've ever been able to chose a saddle is by riding on it and the price was right on this one. That way if it doesn't work out I should be able to sell it without too much of a loss. BTW, I've only ridden the original Flite saddles on all of my bikes since 1993. However, the past few years with a "modern" TT bike have caused me some pain with that saddle. Will be racing on the new saddle next week.
    Thanks.
    Cleave

    I used an Arione for quite a while but the stitching gave me problems. I just got this Serfas about a month ago, and so far so good.
    If you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, then come sit next to me.

    I've had the Selle Italia Trilite 2, the stock Cervelo saddle, love them both, but I must have an iron ***** because I like my Fizik Poggio and really any other saddle I've ever tried.
