Very comfortable on my Trek Fuel EXE.
I just took this saddle on a 5 day bike packing adventure in the Utah Canyonlands and just kept falling more and more in love with this saddle. I wish I would have gotten it when I got into bike packing a few years ago. I used to end up with a really sore bum after a couple of days if there was a lot of in the saddle pedaling, but I have had absolutely no issues with this saddle. I did that whole trip, plus the few hundred miles of prep beforehand just absolutely loving this saddle. The wide fit and Core padding adds so much comfort to my hardtail that I'm just going to leave the saddle on even for "normal" trail riding.
I gave it such high recommendations that 2 of my buddies also bought different versions of Cores saddles (SMC) and are complete converts as well.
If you're into any sort of long distance touring, bike packing, or just high mileage pedaling you will not be disappointed with this saddle. Just make sure you get the appropriate size for your bum and enjoy the comfort.
Still hoping for a break in period,,seat feels good for about 15 miles but then gets me sore after that..
To each their own...I am 6'4" and 220lbs so as a rider its been hard to find a good saddle.
I got this saddle and this is my 8th try to find the "golden challis" of saddles that would work for me. Typically I ride 20/30 miles every day and although other saddles have worked for 10/15 miles they all seem to bother me at or around the 20-mile mark. Out of the box, this ST Core Prime Saddle was the best I have ever used. The saddle felt great on the first ride and although I still need to dial it in a bit more, and typically ride 3/4 times more to break it in fully I was able to ride 20 miles on the first ride with no perennial or sit bone issues.
The saddle also felt very good as I was able to sit in one place for most of the ride. The first thing I noticed about the saddle was the dampening effect the seat gave me during the rough part of my route and when I got to the smooth roads it was giving me support to put good force into my pedals without feeling like the saddle was too soft. I am definitely looking forward to having this saddle on my bike and riding in comfort with a relatively light saddle set up.
I have been riding for a few decades and for the first time ever do not a feel any discomfort during and after my 40+ mi ride this morning AMAZING!!!!!
