    I put a Romin Evo Expert on my singlespeed. I only have 2 rides with it on this bike,but it has been on my road bike since May. So far I think it works better than any other saddle I have used on my mtb. I need a saddle with a cutout and the Romin has one of the widest channels.

    Yeah I like the cutout of the romin but I do not trust in the clamp system of my kcnc ti pro so maybe I will buy a romin evo ti rails.

    But this EVO model is great for endurance rides???

    I don't know yet. I just put it on the bike and have 2-2 hour rides on it. I have used a Toupe for
    some 6 hour rides and it was good. This saddle seems better so far, but only a few long rides will really tell.

    After trying a bunch of saddles in the quest for the holy A@@ Groove, I've settled on a Romin Evo Comp Gel. This is on my road bike which currently lives on a trainer in my basement.

    It's the only saddle to date where the important bits didn't go numb after 45 minutes of spinning. I can spin for 2 hours and feel ok afterwards - that would be representative of a much, much longer XC ride. I really like this saddle! The specialized demo saddle was a romin evo expert (not gel) and it was a bit firmer than the Gel. Both are excellent but the Gel is just a bit more soft on the sit bones.

    That being said I debated ordering another for my XC bike. In all honesty - I don't think I will bother - I just don't think it will be strong enough. I weigh 80KG and even on my road bike the seat creaks and it's brand new - I just don't think it will handle real world trail abuse.
