I just got a Forté Pro SLX Saddle through Performance. Seemed like a good deal. 200 grams, and it fits my buns really well. Happy buyer? NO!
It turns out the raised stiching is rough as all get out. Not so i can feel it, but enough that it destroyed my bibs. It just abraded them to almost nothing in 200 miles.
I'm planning on sending back the saddle, and the Performance Elite Bibs (that I REALLY like) the seat ate and HOPE Performance will replace the bibs and credit the seat.
Does anyone else have a Forté Pro SLX Saddle? Is your Stitching a problem?
I like the saddle except for this deal-breaker flaw.
