Brooks England B17 Standard Aged Saddle - Men's Brooks England B17 Standard Aged Saddle - Men's
Get used to idiots making lame comments about grundle-suffering when you bolt a Brooks B17 Aged Standard Saddle to your two-wheeled partner. To those not in the know, cracking jokes about a hard-looking torture device of a saddle is hee-larious. Just grin and bear it, and make a comment about your tougher-than-average nether region. Keep to yourself the fact that this supple, handmade leather saddle has conformed to your posterior and provides more comfort than the boobtube-addicted, comedy-genius' worn-out couch.

Selle Italia Flite Flow Saddle Selle Italia Flite Flow Saddle
The original Selle Italia Flite saddle goes back nearly 25 years, and it's been so popular very little has changed. Enter the Flite Flow Saddle, with its pressure-relieving cutout, and you have a recipe for a saddle that'll be a favorite in another 25 years. The base of the Flite Flow is a 10% carbon, 90% nylon composite. This higher percentage of nylon, as compared to other Selle models, means a supportive ride that gives a bit to enable natural flex. This helps to keep vibration and road chatter at bay, which means longer, more comfortable rides. The width is 145mm, which is within a millimeter of the original Flite. Selle Italia added a cutout to the saddle that helps to minimize pressure in the perineal artery and soft tissue. With pressure directed away from these zones, you'll put your weight on the more supportive sit bones. This reduces numbness by keeping the blood flowing. The saddle is built upon titanium rails, which also help with road chatter. Finally, the cover is durable Lorica that is low friction and won't snag on your shorts.

Selle Italia SLR Lady Flow Selle Italia SLR Lady Flow
Shrinking and pinking used to be a viable way to make women's cycling gear, but times have changed, and products like the Selle Italia SLR Lady Flow Women's Saddle is proof that the cycling world is taking ladies, and their gear, seriously. That said, the Lady Flow takes some cues from the classic SLR Flow, such as its 275mm length, Lorica artificial leather cover, and the surgical grade Ti 316 rails. It shares the carbon-injected nylon shell, too, which provides a killer blend of stiffness, support, and comfort, so you can ride hard without suffering excessively. The rest of the Lady Flow, though, has been redesigned. The rear wings are 135mm in width, four millimeters wider than the men's saddle, to comfortably fit female sit bones, and the nose is also slightly wider and designed to take your weight off sensitive pressure points. There's also slightly thicker padding in key areas to reduce vibration and increase comfort, but the Lady Flow is still a decidedly minimalist offering. Minimal doesn't mean wimpy, though--the Lady Flow is tough enough that Selle Italia rates it for road, cyclocross, and mountain bike use, so you can pick up three and stick them on all of your rides.

Selle SMP Pro Selle SMP Pro
Selle SMP's uniquely designed saddle features a wide cutout to reduce pressure from the inside of the saddle, while also giving you a medium to wide platform to support your pelvis. The shape of the nose is distinct and it serves to provide a flat base while seated. Some riders, especially TT specialists, prefer to tip the nose down to the UCI legal limit to remove the pressure they would normally feel when they sit on the nose. The back of the saddle has a slight upward sweep to keep you in place and avoid sliding back and forth along the saddle during uphill efforts. This reduces additional friction and discomfort. It also helps to reduce pressure on the coccyx. The Pro uses elastomer foam that gives just enough to provide vibration dampening. The foam is wrapped in leather for the black version and Lorica for the colored versions. The shell was constructed of a solid nylon-carbon composite on stainless steel rails.

Selle SMP TRK Man Selle SMP TRK Man
For those looking for a reasonably priced saddle with plenty of cushion, a central pressure-relief channel, and a fairly wide platform, Selle SMP's TRK saddle answers the call. The TRK is best suited for cyclists with medium-wide and wide pelvises, as it features a longer and wider body, with more padding, than other models in this range. At the nose, there's the characteristic "beak" shape designed to provide a flat base while sitting, without excessive pressure on the genital area. SMP's pronounced central channel was also incorporated, which further reduces pressure on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue. The back of the saddle is raised for an enhanced seated pedaling position, where body weight is divided between the rear and lower part of the ischial tuberosity region. This shape also helps reduce overall pressure on the coccyx while riding over rough surfaces. The saddle's generous foam elastomer padding gets wrapped in a durable Lorica microfiber. Its nylon composite shell rides on stainless steel rails, ensuring a secure perch that'll hold up for both road and mountain applications. The Selle SMP TRK Man is available in one size (280 x 160mm) and in the color Black. It is handmade in Italy and has a claimed weight of 359 grams.

WTB High Tail Carbon Saddle WTB High Tail Carbon Saddle
As bikes get more and more travel-happy, components and accessories have to evolve to keep up. Saddles, though, are largely immune to changing bike design -- a seat's a seat, right' WTB's not so sure, and so it designed the High Tail Carbon Saddle specifically to accommodate long-travel bikes that might otherwise buzz your saddle when the suspension is fully compressed. By shortening the saddle to 255mm and including a rear cut-out, WTB made sure the High Tail won't get buzzed on bikes with compact rear frames, big wheels, and plush suspensions. This design also reduces the weight to a mere 159 grams with help from the inclusion of carbon-fiber rails and a featherweight carbon shell. A shorter tail makes it easier to get your weight off the back when you're descending, and WTB's signature DNA padding provides personalized and unparalleled comfort. While the High Tail was made with DH and enduro riding in mind, it's light and comfortable enough to work as a trail or road saddle, so don't hesitate to throw it on your preferred ride.

WTB Volt Comp Saddle with Steel Rails WTB Volt Comp Saddle with Steel Rails
Not many bike components can pull duty across road, XC, all-mountain, and enduro disciplines, but the WTB Volt Comp Saddle with Steel Rails is one of the few that can. By borrowing features from other WTB saddles, the Volt manages to be comfortable and cost effective at the same time, no matter where you're riding. The steel rails provide a solid platform, while the synthetic cover is comfortable and durable and the padding protects sensitive spots by strategically supporting your anatomy. The Volt also features WTB's Flex-Tuned shell, which is not as supple as the Soft Shell but not as firm as the Carbon Composite, giving you a precise but comfortable platform that takes you from the trail to the road and back.
