Ergon Phorm saddles are designed to give you maximum comfort whether you ride to work every day or just to the coffee shop on the weekends. The Phorm saddles provide maximum comfort whether you're in your riding getup or a t-shirt and jeans. The Phorm saddles are based on the concept of three comfort zones. A center channel provides maximum relief, the padding shape leading into the cut-out is unique to men and women for anatomy specific comfort, and gel underneath the sit-bones provides all day support.
Strengths: This saddle was installed on a flat-bar road bike (a 2013 Jamis Coda Sport) as a replacement for the stock saddle. The stock saddle had soft padding and was comfortable initially, but would become somewhat uncomfortable after a few miles of riding. The Phorm S310 Gel Max saddle has firmer padding, but feels noticeably more comfortable under the sit bones after a few miles of riding. It definitely makes the bike more comfortable to ride on longer rides. It offers good value for the price.
Weaknesses: None for the price.
