- Please understand this is purpose built race/performance saddle, so naturally it will be firmer than our other saddle offerings. If you are looking for a trail or mtb saddle for prolonged sitting, please consider our SM or SMC saddle series.
This seat is super comfy on the sit bones. My sit bones were just inside the measurements for the smaller size so I ordered that, but upon receiving it and trying it out on the floor it was clearly not wide enough. I got the larger size and the fit is great. However, my big disappointment with the seat is that the surface material has to much friction, like rubber. So it tends to grab and pull my shorts when I'm trying to move my body position on technical trails and jumps. Not cool.
I am coming from a Specialized Power saddle and wanted to try something else. I didn’t like the look of the cut out on the women’s saddles, so I chose this one. This model definitely is for those of us who don’t like much/any padding. It has even slightly less padding than the Power saddle, so this model is not for anyone who’s sit bones aren’t already used to bike saddles. The length is a little long for me but the nose doesn’t get in the way. Overall, it provides some of the least soft tissue pain in my sensitive areas compared to almost all other saddles I’ve tried.
Love the seat. Very comfortable. No more numb A$$. The Rainbow Oil Slick looks awesome too!
I absolutely love this saddle! And yes I am a woman, but the amazing thing about the human body is that we are all built so differently! SO don't be afraid to try something outside your normal box if you are having saddle discomfort. The SM Enduro saddle is shaped perfectly for technical descents and never gets in the way. I love the flare from the Oil Slick rails, matches perfectly with AXS.
