the seat grips well, i use craft path shorts.

i have my spare/winter bike that is bit too small, and i have the saddle maxed out to the back, and the rails have been bendt,i do nto know if its caused by my weight or roadbumps pushing the saddle into my bum.

keep the saddle as close to centre as possible. me sitting and riding on ruff road will give this result,but this will happen on most saddles,but I put the saddle in the middle position and the saddle rails straightened out almost straight.

After I adjusted the seat angle to slightly backwards, it improved the comfort a lot.

Pros:

  • comfortable,even I like rounder seats better
  • the front is not flexing much,I think this saddle will last a while,and not get worn out of flex on the front until it falls part, like some saddles do,but the common issue most of saddles have is that the flex make the screws holding the front in place pop out,but I prefer the method Fabric use,no screws at all.

cons:

  • clicking sound from the seat flexing.
