Unique Saddle Design - Testers Needed - Do you still have severe saddle / seat pain?

We are testing a unique and potentially ground-breaking saddle design, and need your help.
We are looking for intelligent feedback of a whole new design of saddle, and we want complete, full and honest feedback.
We want real rider opinions and are not looking for "positive customer reviews", not for "good", "OK", "poor" responses.

We are looking for Different Styles of Riders, people willing to ride it touring for hundreds of miles, diehard Brooks fans, commuters, larger Clydesdales, as well as people just riding around their neighborhood for some exercise or with the kids. In various weather conditions and different parts of the country. Men, Women, Kids - the family pet too, if you can get her on it.
This will also fit on exercise bikes.
The current model is fairly wide, but will work for most styles and sizes of riders. (*Except MTB bikers who need to move to the back and front of the saddle due to the terrain. A hard core Mountain Biker is not the optimum user, nor is this a hard core racing saddle.)

You will need to ride the saddle sending us your impressions and experiences. We want your complete, full and honest feedback.

Thank you for your time.

Shape of the saddle (eg. a pic) is public yet? Not that I would be able to apply for a test, seeing that I live overseas and also it's winter. Just curious.

If you're willing to ship abroad (specifically the UK) I might be interested in having a look at it.

I actually already received the saddle, got to test it a few times until it was stolen right off my bike at work, seat post and all.

Testing is in progress. We responded by email to everyone. If you applied, but did not receive any reply, please email again (or reply to this thread and I'll contact you through the private system.)

"Thank you to everyone who expressed an interest in testing this new saddle. Due to the high volume of applicants and limited number of saddles, not everyone will be sent a test saddle immediately. It may take a little time to get one to you. Some of you in the very Northern states may receive one in the spring, as Winter riding may be difficult. And because of certain circumstances or variables, we may not be able to send one to you for testing at all."

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at your convenience.

Bob
