    Anyone on the new Bontrager Serano saddle?

    Looking at a project one build, and considering the Serano saddle as an option. I see some people saying it's close to the Arione, but it looks nothing like an Arione to me. I'm currently on an Aliante, which has a similarly upturned tail. I feel like it more closely resembles the lines of the Aliante, or more likely a classic Concor Light.

    Bontrager likes to tell me that the Paradigm is closer to the Aliante, but it looks more like a Speciliazed Toupe to me and my rear end hates cutout saddles.

    So is anyone actually riding the Serano? What saddles have you liked in the past?

    Sorry, no help with Serano, but the affinity 2 that came with my Domane is almost a perfect copy of the Aliante and fits roughly the same.

    Rode the stock saddle on my Madone for a while, B-tager Affinity 2, and found it to be uncomfortable as I lost weight. I tried the Serano and I hated it. Genitals went numb really fast. Now on an Antares VS and love it. The saddle it self was well made, and with the Alloy rails, light enough for me to not care. Just wasn't a good fit for me, but as always your butt may love it.
