Have a look at the Selle Royal Respiro. It is really a unique saddle and I am looking forward to installing and getting it adjusted. I really like the density of the thing - not as soft as a "gel" saddle. In between a new Brooks and most gels.

It is specifically designed for a "Moderate" riding style, which they claim is 60 degrees, which I think would qualify for most of the off the drops pedaling time.
