Fi'zi:k Women's Vitesse HP Road Saddle

The women's Fizik Vitesse HP Road Saddle is certainly an improvement over many men's and unisex saddles. I initially felt pretty comfortable, and that more of my weight was being supported by my sit bones. While I had reduced what the ladies may call "soft tissue pressure", I was fairly uncomfortable after 10 miles and experienced numbness somewhere around 15 to 20 miles. While I've found that an even wider saddle with a cut out to be more comfortable for me personally, I think this saddle is a good choice for some women. (I also recommend the WTB Deva.) This saddle seems to be well made and is a reasonable weight. I'm not convinced the slots on the seat edge do much in terms of flexing and preventing chafing, but they can't hurt!
