For the lazy readers I would say that every biker I know that tried it, never went back to the "normal" saddles, even womens love it, and there are 15-17 bikers in my club that are currently using it. Its a basic concept.. sit on your bones and not on your balls.carrbone said:So how is it? I'm really intrigued by the pdf and info, etc. What I need is your honest opinion about it... How have in the field rides gone?
Many bikers say that this saddles are ugly, but they say it too about 29ers... In spain we say that opiniones are like the ass, everone got one... but mine got no problem to sit down after a long mtb ride. The most suspicious bikers say that the pro's dont use them.. but is for legal reasons, because the UCI doesnt allow saddles that are so short, but referees doesnt take much attention to it here, at least in mtb races.
I started using them 2 years ago, after a 3 day and 10h/day ride that :madman: my ass alot. A pal told me about them, because he had same problems and the doctor recomended them.. and past october he had a daughter. I have ride since then 2 o 3 time in a normal saddle and the difference is huge. Normally takes 3 or 4 rides to get used to the new position, because the legs are more close and the position is like if you where skiing at high speed. Going down the hill is more conftable too, because nothing can hurt your balls.
I think they are not sold in the USA, only in Europe, and the cheapers are about 45€:
The thing that I like more of them, is that when your in a hard climb, like 20-30%, you can sit in the front of the saddle, with no "nose" getting up your ass
PD: Sorry about my english grammar, I'm still learning
