Sure it is great to loose the zipper but the effort to get these on over shoes is almost to the point of "screw it". I wanted them as an easy pull over to keep the kicks clean in rain or wet road riding. Once you get them on all is well but be prepared to allot some time to make it happen.

First it is wonderful to find gloves that fit. Used the fit guide and they are just right. I live in Texas and wear these full finger gloves in the summer. I suppose they will work well through the early Fall as well. I can't say I've put them thru the wringer but have worn them for a month as "the" pair of gloves. Washing has not dulled or stressed these gloves. The fit remains spot on and the stitching and colors are not distressed. I really should get another pair.

Always on the lookout for a wide, flat (as opposed to semi-round or round) profile saddle. Do not care about gender designation, just fit.
Wider platform allows for sit bones to carry the load and minimal padding. Was riding a Selle Italia SKN which is 150mm but alas they discontinued it. Another in a long line of "hey, this saddle works" only to have it discontinued. Is it me? I think so.

This Arione Donna 00 is wonderfully light, wide @ 147mm and for me padded just right. I believe the carbon shell will give this saddle added life as well.

Never understood why manufacturers make women's saddles uber padded and HEAVY. Squishy padding just means saddle sores, cut outs simply increase the areas of discomfort and heavy means no thought went into the product. Padding I got, well placed shell support is what I need and good design is what I want.

The sale price allowed me to give the Donna 00 a try and I am happy I did. Once I gave it a ride I bought another. Figure me liking it must be its death knell so I should have a stash!

The quest for a comfortable saddle is a Zen like, life long journey. The Nago Evo is the current "happy place" saddle for me. I am a female and have ridden and raced for 30 years.

What I love is the flat back end. The saddle isn't any wider in the back but flattened instead of rounded. This gives a nice platform for wider sit bones to help keep the soft tissue out of harms way.

What Goldilocks said....the nose is just right. Not too narrow and neither is it too wide. The transition from nose to back end is smooth and allows for easy leg movement while letting the sit bones stay put. No ooching forward against your will!

For me the flatness of the saddle combined with the stiff shell gives the perfect platform to keep the power on in all positions and without discomfort.

Other saddles ridden: San Marco ERA's, SLK and SKN. Really liked the SKN's for awhile but the wider nose started to bug me. Selle Italia SLR's and the TT's for my time trial and track bikes. Still use the Felt Tri Carbon saddle on the track bike....which is a softer nose version of the Selle Italia TT saddle. Fizik Pave. Finally, I recently tried the Neuvation S5....close but still too rounded.
