    I'd go with a Brooks sprung saddle. That's the ugliest bike seat I've ever seen!

    Aside from being "different"(ugly?), with no horn to keep you from sliding off, you're left with either sitting bolt upright or lots of pressure on arms and hands. Been there and done that.
    The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me

    Thats the Adamo saddle, they also make some racing saddles that are marginally better looking than the touring saddle with a heavy emphasis on "marginally". Some people complain that they are too wide in the nose of the saddle and end up pulling them together with Velcro straps or something. I would say if your junk going numb is a big issue for you, this might be your answer but I also think the racing versions would be better on a touring bike for reduced chafing.

    I would never buy anything from a company who calls their product a "bicycle seat." Bicycles dont, or should not at least, have a "seat." A seat is designed to hold virtually the entire weight of your body and so spreads that weight out as much as possible, even to your soft tissue. This is why bicycles have saddles. A saddle is designed to support a portion of the riders weight where it is needed most, on the sit bones and not on the soft tissue. The rest of the riders weight should ideal be distributed through the legs (pedaling) and arms.

    If this company calls their product a seat then I say they dont know anything about bicycles or are trying to cater to a market that also does not know anything about bicycles.
