For my daily 20 mile exercise ride today, I put a new saddle on my red racer. The saddle is a Fizik Dolomiti. If I had to describe this saddle in a word, the word would be "skeletal." This saddle has a narrow rear that quickly tapers to a long, narrow nose. The plastic bottom pan is serrated in the middle and up the saddle's nose to provide a "springy" surface forward of the sit flare at the rear.
Surprisingly, the saddle seems to work fine. Unlike the Brooks B-17 or even the split-tail Specialized Milano saddle, you don't so much as sit on the Fizik as you do perch over it. Although all your weight is on the lightly-padded sit platform, there seems to be little or no pressure at all on the perineum. This lack of perineal pressure seems to reduce numbness.
Since the saddle is so narrow, there is nothing to rub against the insides of the thighs, as there is with saddles that taper toward the nose more gradually.
The long nose allows good control of the bike when riding "no hands." Also, since the sit bones are supported by such an abbreviated platform, the least bit of hip roll fore or aft seems to provide a different pressure point for the bottom. This is definitely not a "support the cheeks" type of saddle!
Since a "cool front" came through here last night and tomorrow's temperature at wake up is supposed to be in the 60's, I think I may try my "ride your age" excursion in the morning. I'm thinking that I'll try it with the Fizik saddle on the bike. By tomorrow noon, I may HATE the Fizik, but for the first 20 miles I put on it today, it seems to work fine! I'll update this post after the next long ride & let y'all know.
