Strengths:    Very well constructed, looks like it would give long service life. Good looking, not too dorky for a cut-out model.

Weaknesses:    OUCH! OUCH! OUCH OUCH!

Bottom Line:   
Experienced genital numbness (among other problems) after a ride for the first time in my life at 41 YOA. I thought a perineal cut-out saddle design was a prudent thing to try so I did some research and some measuring and decided on the Selle Italia Man Gelfow saddle. BIG MISTAKE. In my experience there are two types of saddles that work well... something like a Titec El Norte that has a lot of surface area so you can move around a bit (get towards the front on a climb, scoot back for a stretch, etc.) or a saddle with one good sweet spot that you just want to park yourself in, like a WTB Speed V. The Selle Italia Man Gelflow has neither of these attributes. During a three hour ride I tried fore and aft adjustments, tilt adjustments and seatpost height variations. By the end of the ride I was perched as far back on the saddle away from the cutout as I could stand. Had intense discomfort for several days after that one ride. Never had these problems before even on centuries and all day trail ride. Gonna Craigslist this sucker ASAP.
FYI I'm 6'3" and 210lbs.
