What are some good options for long >15 hour days of riding? Also been doing some saddle swaps to see if it helps.
You asked this question on the touring forum. Most people here are on the bike for less time than you would have been on a bike during a 200k brevet. Maybe you need to ask some of the other riders when you do rando events? When they are on the saddle for 200 or 300 or 400k events, they certainly would have the experience to give you advice.

I personally like a leather saddle that is well broken in.
