Adamo Saddle for Touring?

I recently picked up a secondhand tandem and am planning to tour up to Canada this summer with my soon-to-be wife (a trip of some 800 miles). The tandem came with a nice specialized saddle for the stoker, but the captain's saddle is garbage. I use an Adamo on my road bike and I'm in mad love with it. Should there be any problems using an Adamo in a slightly more upright position and for longer overall rides? As a side note, I've tried the Brooks B17 previously and wasn't a fan.

I've toured with the Adamo with no problems. I don't know if my bike is an 'upright' position but it works for me.

If it is comfortable for you on your road bike why wouldn't it work while touring?

Thanks for the reply. I figured it would be a good choice, but wasn't sure if touring introduced some new element I hadn't considered. I'm glad to hear it's worked for you.

the saddle to butt relationship is very individual .

You sitting on it is better than the opinions of Others.

You need to try the Adamo on the tandem. I'm using a saddle (actually two saddles in total) on my primary touring bike that were not too good on my roadies. The only reason I can think of is the less aggressive, more upright fit on the touring bike. Both saddles have a slightly wider seat pan.
