Scoop Pro Saddle

The Fabric Scoop Pro saddle is simple. It’s lightweight and it’s tough. The Scoop comes in four varieties: Elite, Race, Pro, and Ultimate. The Scoop Pro starts with carbon fiber rails and a nylon base. Fabric says its Scoop Saddle is "designed for everyone," and that’s exactly what it is.

Like many of today’s bicycle saddles, the Scoop is designed to work with road, mountain, or cyclocross bikes. Unlike many of today’s saddles, however, the Scoop gives you options for fit, feel, and style. You can choose between two different base materials for the Scoop saddle: nylon or carbon fiber. The Scoop Pro comes with a flexible nylon base. This base is both lightweight and comfortable. The Scoop also offers three different rail material options. The Pro model comes with Fabric’s 9mm oval carbon fiber rails, which are both the lightest and stiffest in the line.

The Scoop saddle comes in three different shapes, which vary in curvature from tip to tail. The three shapes are Flat, Shallow, and Radius. Which saddle you choose depends on which saddle is most comfortable for your body type. All of Fabric’s Scoop saddles feature dense polyurethane foam for cushioning and a waterproof microfiber shell fabric, which is available in either white or black.

  • Versatile cycling saddle made with award-winning build technique
  • Flexible nylon base is equal parts lightweight and comfortable
  • Carbon fiber rails shed weight while boosting strength
  • Shape choice depends on which fits your body shape most comfortably
  • Dense polyurethane foam cushions your sit bone on rough terrain
  • Waterproof microfiber shell fabric keeps dry and is easy to clean

Good Saddle

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got this for a buddy and he said, I realize saddles are a very personal piece of equipment so I will refrain from saying this is the best saddle ever. It is a very high quality saddle and looks quite dope with its sexy and light carbon rails. The all black version is somewhat understated yet manages to add a touch of class to any bike. The cover is easy to wipe clean and the solid base doesn't get all gunky and funky with mud and road grit. The price is very competitive for an cyclist who has seen the outrageous asking prices of other high-end seating options. It is the best saddle for me and I will be purchasing another for my mountain groading bike pronto.

Good but watch for pressure points

    After uncomfortable numbness in a long ride, I switched back to Selle SMP. Not risking it.

    Great saddle

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The looks aren't flashy, but its light weight and fits my sit bones so I like it. It feels like good quality so I expect to get many miles out of it.

    Will the fabric scoop pro flat saddle fit with Black inc. seatpost clamps?

    Yes it will, as long as you have the 7x7 clamp installed on the post. if you are buying the post separate from a Factor bike, then the post should arrive with both the 7x7 and 9x7 clamp.

    If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me.

    If you have the appropriate hardware yes.

    Factor offers 2 different types of hardware 7x9 for carbon braided saddles or 7x7 for metal rails. Competitive Cyclist should be able to get you the right size

    Great seat

      I have been a die hard Fizik Antares fan for years, but couldn’t bring myself to throw down another 300 bones for another saddle. But this Fabric Ultimate Flat is nearly identical in shape and size! Just a few grams heavier but who cares when it is less expensive. The carbon rails help absorb the road chatter, and the carbon shell is super stiff yet comfortably compliant. I am beyond excited about this saddle, I am considering one for my CX/Gravel bike.

      Love It

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Most comfortable saddle I've ridden. I didn't get to try before buy, I just liked what the Magazine reviews were saying about this saddle which coming on many of the Intense bikes now. I couldn't be more satisfied...fits me perfect.

      Better Than Fizik (for me)

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      In my princess-and-the-pea saddle search, I have traveled through Selle- and Fizik-Land and finally arrived at the intersection of Fabric Scoop Pro (shallow).

      Briefly, I am 6'1" 180; 59 hard years that included the usual nicks and knocks, back and knee surgeries and a broken neck to boot. I like to go fast, but I value ride quality and aesthetics. My everyday bike is a Vanilla Bicycles Speedvagen which ticks all of the marks for me.

      Up until now, I have been swapping two Fizik saddles depending on whim mostly: the Antares R1 and Aliante 00. I also have an older Fizik Kurve (bull) on my trainer bike. I like the Fizik saddles, but was kind of wishing for something between the Antares and Aliante, and decided to try the Fabric Scoop since the pro model especially seemed like a value for the features and good reviews; well I now have about 1,000 km on it and I can say that I prefer it to the Fizik models mentioned. The Fabric looks nice and clean (black-on-black) and I disagree with the reviewer who said it looks cheap. The saddle is comfortable but not mushy on the country roads I ride which include chip seal and gravel sections. I am very pleased!

      A note on the rails: my Speedvagen has an ENVE seat post head with the wedge-style rail hardware. This hardware comes in a "wide" version to accommodate oval carbon rails, but still needs to be filed down to fit Fizik's carbon rails-- an even then it's a real B-with-an-itch to install a Fizik saddle. Fabric's carbon rails are just a little bit thinner, making installation a breeze. Only time will tell how the Fabric rails will wear, but I've already sheared a rail on an Aliante 00 in a crash so Fizik isn't bulletproof either.

      i too have the enve seatpost (2-bolt version) and have had trouble with 7x9 rails. how's it holding so far on the 7x10?

      Perfection (For Me)

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Saddles are very individual, and what worked for me may not be quite as successful for you...but coming from a Fizik Aliante, which was about 90% of what I needed to be, this was perfect. I actually went to the flat shape to provide some more support for my sit bones and it has been great, even on longer rides with older chamois pads.

      I prefer the Pro model over the Ultimate because the Nylon shell flexes more than the carbon one does. Weight difference is negligible.

      Comfort for the bottom

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Nice saddle for long days. Not a lot of padding, but perfect fit for maximum comfort.

      Awesome Saddle so far

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I am already really excited for spring and winter riding now that I have this saddle to ride base miles on my main workhorse, my surly crosscheck. I only have my initial impressions so far, but I already rode this up city creek canyon and then on dirt trail as well with 35c tires and I was so impressed by it afterwards because I hardly noticed the saddle during me ride, a very good sign.

      I have medium to narrow sit bones and this is a perfect fit for me.

      Do I need a special seatpost to saddle mount to use with this saddle's 7x9 oval rails? If I don't use a special mount, then will the saddle slide out of position?

      I have the same question. I installed this saddle on my FSA setback seatpost that came on my Orbea and about 20 miles in my saddle started sliding backwards, which is really... uncomfortable. I could torque it down more, but worried about cracking the carbon rails.

      The 5 star rating is true

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      the reviews are correct, this is the best saddle I have ridden. Firm with minimal padding, no squish, but very forgiving on harsh roads with a little flex. i love it.

      Great Saddle

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a unique product. The ultra-flexible shell will conform to your shape much more than other saddles. I tend to prefer more of dished shape when riding off-road but prefer a flatter profile on my road bike. I had been riding a Ti WTB Silverado on my Trek Emonda but opted for the Scoop Pro Flat this time around, as I was betting that the flexible shell would still create a bit of a "tail" to push against when climbing. While it was not an epiphany over my prior ride, it is certainly no worse. The carbon version is crazy-light and the esthetics are excellent.

      Tried the rest, amazingly comfortable!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      33 years riding and competing, I've ridden saddles like the Turbo, Titanio 200, Fizik Aliente Gamma, and recently was on the R3 Arione. Although all were comfortable enough, I have to admit I really love the feel of the Fabric saddle. More comfortable on longer rides than the Arione, and I might say better constructed. The only thing to beware: seat rails are larger diameter than most and as such I had to use a longer bolt in the rear clamp of my carbon post to accommodate the increased diameter of the rails. No biggie, but be prepared.

      Scoop Shallow Elite

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have the one with steel rails and it is outstanding. The design rocks and I love the rubber-like cover. Mechanically this is a totally different design, a cross between a Fizik Aliante and the hammock design of a Brooks Cambium. It is very, very comfortable without the mass and squish of other saddles.

      Fabric Saddle

        I got this saddle over the winter and have ridden it both indoor and outdoors. The shape is beautiful and simple, quality is great and the degree of comfort is very good as well. The saddle material tends to keep you in place. I would recommend this saddle and in fact will be looking and replacing my existing Ritchey saddle on my other bike.

        Fabric Saddle

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I was introduced to the brand / saddle by buying a Cannondale Supersix Evo and really like it. As a result I purchased a second Fabric saddle for my "in-door" Trek bike so that I have the same one for both bikes.

        Better than Fizik

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I found I like a wide flat saddle and this fit the bill. I'm glad I went with this over my previous Fizik Antares. It's much more comfortable without sacrificing too much weight. It has more padding and a better shape than the Fizik. The build is also better, more sleek. It also isn't as bouncy over bumps. The material of the seat cover is also the best stuff. Grippy yet smooth... FABRIC??? IDK but it's nice.
