    Wide MTB saddles

    I'm 6'6", 230 pounds with an athletic build. I ride a 155mm Specialized Toupe Gel on my CAAD9 and Terry liberator gels on my Rockhopper and XO. I recently picked up a Hifi, and need a saddle. I want a wide saddle, around 155 like my other saddles. I also prefer a center cutout. I may just buy a Specialized saddle, but want to see if there are any cheaper options in a similar width to my 155. I love the Terry's, but I want something a little firmer and lighter on this bike. Any recommendations? For reference, I've demo'd just about all of WTB's saddles, and they don't seem to be quite wide enough, and I want something with less foam and more support.

    I am 6'2" and 225 lbs. I have found my favorite saddle: WTB Devo, nose slightly lower than level. It's on all four of my bikes, including my road bike. Good for up to 100 miles a ride so far.

    Specialized has sit bone measureing and can give you a width measurement to look for. Saved me lots of $ vs buying whatever and hoping that it works.

    I've been measured. That's why I ride the 155. I can get by with probably a 148 or 152, but anything smaller doesn't hit my sit bones. I'm simply wondering if there are wide seat options for a more aggressive saddle other than specialized.
