I have two of them, neither of which is completely broken in yet so i can't tell you much about their durability. I'm pretty slim and my modern saddles are all 130mm which is a fair bit narrower than these but i find these FEEL narrower, the sweet spot, for my sit bones is quite small, if i move back a touch i feel the metal support underneath, if i move forward a touch my sitbones slide off onto the skirt and all the pressure is on the perinium, having said that i'm quite comfortable when sitting low on the bike.....upright not so much. All this is subjective of course, saddles are very individual items.
They do look pretty nice on the bike however and the price is way less than the Brooks swallow which they're based on.
