Great for a more aggressive position

I haven't yet found the world's perfect saddle, but the Arione CX is the closest I've found so far. The flat design allows for a more aggressive position (as opposed to the Aliante and it's nose that digs directly into your taint if you're in the drops), and the length of the saddle offers a lot of positioning options if you need to shift around mid ride.

+ Comfy enough
+ Great when in the drops
+ Nice low profile padding
+ ICS saddle bag mount is excellent.

- The saddle can occasionally creak when pressure is put where the nose meets the saddle rails
