Fantastic as can be!

I love this saddle.
I really really love this saddle
Let me tell you about it.
It is oh so comfy. Like really comfortable. I typically gravitate to less soft, more supportive saddles, the saddle I have been running as of late is a Specialized Power saddle, wide and short and pretty firm. I typically stay away from softer saddles becuase numbness is something I always experience with soft saddles and when I picked this one up I figured there was no way it was going to work, but I wanted to try it out anyway. It is just the right amount of everything, the nose is nice and wide so I can sit up front on super steep climbs. I don't have any numbness issues, I think the channel is actually effective, unlike some other saddles.
This thing is crazy light for as soft as it is.
In the past, I have ridden the WTB Volt, WTB Speed V, Specialized Power, Specialized Phenom, Specialized Toupe, Specialized Romin, Specialized Henge, Fabric ALM, Fabric Scoop (flat), and several saddles from Selle Italia and Selle SMP. I actually quite liked the Fabric Scoop (flat) but the nose wasn't very soft for riding on the front of the saddle. I love Selle SMP saddles for Road and XC or very aggressive riding positions, but for more upright trail riding, the Radar saddle from SDG is fantastic and you cannot beat the price. Not only is it crazy comfy, but the price cannot be beaten.
