I am have switched away from Adamo (tried both Road and Podium) to Cobb V-Flow Max, and have a Cobb JOF Fifty Five on order . If the Adamo works for you - great. For me, the Adamo is simply too wide. Yes I ride it "on the nose" like you are supposed to, but they still press into the crease of my thigh (sometimes taking skin off) and feel like they impinge my hamstrings. I rode two Ironman races on them, but it was very much a love-hate relationship - zero numbness issues, but had to have everything JUST right to keep from losing skin. The Cobb Max is narrower. and does not impinge or rub me raw, but the front bridge caused numbness in a 70.3 race. The JOF Fifty Five is the same width as the Max, but loses the front bridge (actually still there, just underneath the saddle).
There are a bunch of new split nose tri saddles coming out. Fizik also has a new split nose saddle, as well as Bontrager with their Hilo model.
