The Selle SMP Strike Evolution saddle is designed from extensive studies conducted which analyzed the different positions assumed by a cyclist in the various phases of a ride and the constant interaction between the body and the saddle. Based on these findings, Selle SMP designed the STRIKE saddle which prevents the cyclist’s sensitive areas from getting squashed and increases the blood flow to the leg muscles.
Strengths: I have tried probably 15 different saddles in the past 15 years and have never found a saddle where I don't have the problem of numbness during a long ride. The Selle Italia SMP is the first saddle where this has not been an issue and it is light weight for those of you who count grams and very comfortable. My first ride on it was 75 miles and no issues at all!! I'm sold and getting ready to buy another one for my rain bike.
Great Saddle for those people who have the issue of going numb after riding for several hours.
