Citibikes - saddle make/model?

Anyone happen to know what brand/model saddle CitiBikes are using in the NYC / Jersey area?

I'm looking for a comfy saddle like the ones these bikes use (esp. with the split in the middle and suspension).

I believe they have three different saddles depending on the age of the bike. IIRC all made by Selle. As comfortable as they may be they are made more for durability than comfort and many have a pass-thru hole in the middle to avoid collecting water. These are often only available to manufacturers of bikeshare and rental bikes.

The Freeway & Manhattan on this page are very popular for comfort and efficient riding: Saddles

Uncertain exactly which that bike company is providing.

Looks a bit like the saddle I use on one of my bikes. Selle SMP Martin, either in the Touring sizing or the Fitness sizing. Has the split saddle, is fairly comfy, and is wider and more-supportive for an upright riding position.

Links to info each of these two saddles:
