I'm having good luck with Ergon SME3s on a couple of bikes. Other favorites include SDG Bel Air and WTB Silverado.

I have heard very good things about them. Hoe much riding have you done on it so far?

Maybe an hour or two so far. Not much but even in a half hour ride it's a better fit than any other saddle.

It's one of those that feels weird to start with but the longer the ride the better.

I'm planning to buy more of them for my other bikes. The range and supply is a bit bizarre. I got mine eBay from Germany.

I tried one on my road bike... and now have one on the mtb as well. My fave saddle so far for 24hr events and short brevets :thumbsup:

Minor dredge.
Anyone tried both the SDG bel air 2 & WTB volt?

Visually similar, I'm a long time bel air user seeking some fresh botty joy.

I went from Bel Air to Bel Air 2.
Got them on both trailbikes.
It's a bit stiffer than the old one but I don't get as sore or numb anymore.
Me likey.

Only way to tell is by going to a shop and shoving it up there.

I didn't get on that well with a volt, but I like a flatter saddle and the volt is curved too much for me.

Gave the Spoon a good try, just doesn't agree with my bum.

I have a somewhat aged one going spare.

Both. For a given definition of going spare...

Bum = quietly mental.
Saddle = not on a bike and ready to leave the house
