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.

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.

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.
