Saddle fit and feel differently for different people. I have a WTB Speed V and I really like it. I also have a Selle San Marco on my road bike and I really like it too. I have Serfas on my SS and I don't like it.

You really have to experiment to find what works for you and your bum!

I have the Laser V on my new SS. I only have 2 rides on it thus far, but so far - so good!

I've heard the Speed V is comfortable. I currently run a different Selle San Marco saddle on both my road and mountain bikes and find them very comfortable.
