    Anyone tried Specialized Comp saddle?

    I'm looking for a lightish, comfy saddle for my MTB and think the Specialized ones look pretty cool. It says on their website that they were designed with proffesional osteopaths and so should be pretty comfy and safe. Have any of you guys (or gals ) tried them and if so, what do you think ?

    Thanks all.

    Hi Astra,

    I can't say I have mate, but why not go for a Flite saddle with ti rails? My botty loves it's comfy shape, and it's light to boot!

    Geeeze, got me there,

    I think I've seen them for sale in MBUK for about 30.00...super light at about 182g if my memory serves me correctly, which more often than not, it doesn't.

    Comes in a range of colours too for the fashion minded.

    I tried the first generation BG Comp saddle. It was weird. It had so much flex in the shell that I felt like my cheeks were going in different direction with each pedal stroke.

    I understand they've solved the problem, though...
