    Your favorite saddle... Go!

    Typically I ride with the stock saddle that comes on my bike. however, I have read a few web articles about some saddles that are more comfortable than others. I am getting my first fat bike and would like to put a nice saddle on it and eventually put one on my Trek Dual Sport 8.6. (I am guessing my new Fatboy will become my year-round bike.)

    I would be interested to know which saddles you like the most and why.

    Thanks much

    I currently have an old WTB speed V on my Pugsley....works for me. I have been considering a Brooks B17 for my Moots, but I have never spent much on a saddle.

    I like Selle Itaila Turbo, and flight models. they fit my ass well and arnt too shabby looking;-) Next saddle I'm getting is one of those new brooks cambium c17 saddles for my fat bike. Like the idea of weatherproofness but still a brooks feel.

    Ergon's are hands down the most comfortable I have ever tried. Just have to make sure to get the right width.

    I appreciate the input. Here are my thoughts.....

    First of all, I am a daily commuter. I ride roughly 12-18 miles a day. Currently on a Trek Dual Sport 8.6 but transition to a Fat Bike. I have done some research in the past on these and I still have these questions.

    Brooks - The leather may not be good for muddy or rainy conditions. Also, wouldn't I want some gel or comfort for the daily riding?

    Selle Italia - I had one of these on my BMX bike but never sat on it so i don't remember.

    What are you thoughts of a gel or thicker padded saddle versus the flat and virtually no padding? Why don't you ride with a gel padded saddle? What advantages do the Brooks style seats provide?

    To me over thick padded saddles are ucky, I pretty much want my sit bones to make contact and nothing else. Soft saddles put to much pressure on the taint and I can't stand thagt. I like the Selle gel max because it's kinda firm but has a little suspension built in underneath. Not the lightest saddle and not for everyone but I like it. Saddles are just so personal. For my xc bike where I am in an out of my saddle more I use a Specialized Phenom.

    I actually love the way my $12 Vader sits as well, too bad they don't last long. On my third one this year (granted, I killed one in a crash). I weigh 240# so I kill cheap stuff.

    Another Brooks fan here. However I will say i only like Brooks for certain applications, mostly touring and commuting. I like having a Brooks on my fixie.

    I still prefer the Fizik Arione for road bikes. For mountain bikes, just about anything works since I'm out of the saddle often enough out on the trails. I'm currently using a WTB Pure V on my fat bike.

    My favorite saddle came to me by chance. When I first started riding my 2013 Specialized Camber Comp I was really enjoying it. One day I realized I had not given the saddle a single thought. It turns out the stock Henge saddle is so comfortable I never noticed I was even sitting on it.

    I would just stick with the stock saddle. If you can't get it adjusted to make it work, then try some of the models mentioned in this thread. Leather saddles are suitable for winter riding when they are maintained properly with proofhide, or a similar protective cream. Everyone's body type, riding style, and level of experience differ, so my favorite saddle for all-day riding might be the worst saddle that another rider has ever sat upon.

    My pugs has a WTB speedV. I liked it so much I bought another one to put on another bike. I love Brooks saddles in the warmer months, but when its very cold, they seem slippery and require a little extra effort to stay in the optimal spot.

    I know its a putszy thing to worry about; in a couple of minutes body heat will transfer, but still...

    Specialized Avatar Gel.

    The choices in widths are fantastic, and fit my wide ass bones like no other saddle.

    Saddles are alway subjective
    personally...
    Fizik Arione - road (when I had such a thing called a roadbike back then)
    Brooks Cambium - commuter (more upright butt-glued to saddle riding)
    WTB Silverado - fat and mtb (normally favor wider saddles but since I only sit about half the time on trails this narrower profile is a lot easier to shift around)

    I guess I like stock saddles. As little rubbing as possible. I have Brooks B17 on one of my bikes and always loved it but my current commuter bike I have been riding for the past year has a stock Specialized saddle and when I ride the brooks I seem to prefer the stock. Same now with my ICT I only put 40 miles on the saddle and seem to just like the way it is.

    Specialized Henge or Phenom for me. The base model ones come with steel rails (no biggie) but the padding is usually a bit weak. I like to spend the $$ for the elite models with Ti rails and denser EVA padding. As saddles are one of those important contact points, I don't mind spending a little extra.

    I think you need to do your own fit first.
    Look at the saddle that works for you then think about why, look at the shape, how your sit bones fit, what the angle is from front to back, how hard or soft it is and the amount of padding. Also sit on it buck naked to see how it feels, trust me it's really amazing what you feel.
    Saddles are also round or flat at the back, round is hard on the taint, flat is perfect for sit bones.

    I like flat minimally padded seats and a flexible seat post, Specialized Romin seats for me..

    Brooks B-17, I have them on all my bikes for the past 30 years . It is the only saddle my boney ass allows me to use for more than 1 hour.

    One more Brooks fan here. B-17 or a Flyer.

    I am loving the WTB Speed that came on my fatbike, as a bonus it is water/mud proof.

    Leather saddle and wool underwear. Haven't worn padded shorts for years. All of my bikes have Brooks saddles. I have Brooks saddles I don't have a bike for yet.

    WTB speed V gel. I have some serious sit bone tendonitis issues that kept me off bikes for 5 years. As noted above, sometimes too much gel is worse than a hard saddle. This saddle is really heavy though. Around a pound as I recall.

    It's had to beat the Charge Spoon @ less than $30. Took a few rides to break it in, but now it feels pretty damn good.

    It's a very personal thing but Brooks B17 or Swift for me. If it's very wet or muddy I'll swap it for a Charge Spoon but that's only comfy for a couple of hours whereas I can ride the Brooks all day.
    If you need me I'll be at the bar

    Chromag trailmaster is my new favorite for mountain biking. I used brooks, few wtb, and a bunch of others, the chromag is the best i found for me.

    If your a guy that is active on the saddle and moves around to shift weight to get more traction, get a saddle with a wide nose like the trailmaster.

    Brooks is good but it only has one good seating position, so it works good for roadbikes, touring bikes, dirt road riding and such. I have one on my road bike, tried it on my Mtb and never liked
    it for that application.
    expensive cars are a waste of money. Expensive bikes...not so much!

    Another vote for Pure V, it just works for me. I tried dealing with my specialized henge comp because it was lighter, but my ass said no thanks.

    WTB Volt Race. Still very new to me (less than 2 weeks, 4-5 rides). Rode 3 hours, 31 miles on Friday and felt good when done.

    The old saddle was much bigger, wider, and had a lot more cushion. For whatever reason I could barley go 45 minutes before hurting bad. Doesn't make sense to me but my backside don't lie.

    I found the stock Henge on my Camber to be comfortable as well, when I trashed it, I went for a phenom and found it even more comfortable, if more expensive. It's light as well, got em on all my bikes now

    Spech Romins on all bikes.

    Though tried out a Ergon SM3 lately for longer rides of 8hrs+, settled on a Selle Anatomica for the 600km Simpson Desert race.

    One word of advice though... spent 2 months dialling it in, then drove 1500km to the start of the race, 400km of that on rough dirt roads, the corrugations vibrated the adjusting screw at the front loose. I didnt pick this up till stage 5, by then the damage was already done to my ass.

    Bigger, wider and more cushion is usually bad for significant rides. The saddle needs to be wide enough but wider is usually bad. Cushion only helps the initial feel. After riding a few miles the cushion does nothing.

    This triathlon/TT saddle is probably the last many would choose for a MTB, but it works great because:
    It's relatively long so you can slide forward and back as needed to stay balanced for climbing/descending
    The nose of the saddle is padded so when you are grinding up a steep climb you can ride comfortably on the front of the saddle
    The wings are narrow so it is easy to slide off the back when you need to get your butt way back on steep descents
    Center cutout for perineal bliss
    YMMV

    That thing looks a little too phallic to go anywhere near my butt.

    Its probably ok if you mount it horizontally instead of vertically.

    Selle Italia....A company that ONLY makes saddles. Been doing it longer than anybody except maybe Brooks.

    I got a Fizik Gobi on a new bike. I was surprised how nice it fit my hind quarters.

    Each WTB saddle I get usually goes in the trash. Both Selle and Fizik are Italian companies. Hmmm. I guess I like eurotrash.

    "Hammock" suspension, also available e.g. with WTB Speed, some Selle & Fi'zi:k.
    I have modified cheap saddles by cutting away polymer shell beneath sit bones.

    Thread necro alert!

    WTB Rocket Team on my Fattie. It's comfortable enough and weatherproof.

    Brooks B17 and C17 on my touring bikes.

    Chromag Lynx on the trail bike.

    Dude, I tried that saddle and no matter how long I futzed with it I could never get it adjusted right. Fore, aft, up, down. I just never found the sweet spot.

    Of the more than 10 saddles I have tried, I really like Charge Spoons. Lightish, comfortable, fit me well, cheap. I have them on both of my bikes, as well as my son's.

    Takes a little time to break them in, but what I do with new ones is put them on my son's (18 yo) bike for a couple of weeks for him to break them in. He has younger butt than I and never notices.

    Chromag Trailmaster. I can't believe how much more comfortable it is than any saddle I have ever used.

    Bought 4 of the Trailmaster DT's from Jenson cause they were blowing out the 2016's cheap. More comfy than anything else Ive tried lately.

    I would be interested to know which saddles you like the most and why.

    Thanks much
    Welcome. Here in WI your name can make one think. There are a lot of fat bikers and fat bikes no matter what the person rides. We're not fat but two of our bikes are. Some feel our favored WTB Pure V saddles are fat.

    My wife and I agree on WTB Pure series. They keep both of us happy sharing bikes year-round. They're not the lightest but work well. We have the high end ti rail version and cheapest OEM models across 4 bikes. The bike engine makes more difference than which seat is lighter.

    Bike came with a Cionlli branded for Borealis. Not terrible but just not right for me. Next came a WTB Volt and that's not my saddle at all. Bored the other day I threw my ERGON road saddle an and thought not too bad but a full carbon minimal padded seat wasn't going to get it so I found a deal on an Ergon SMC3 pro large from Backcountry for $62.38 and put it on yesterday. 24 miles later i think its perfect. If its your shape they still have a medium for $55.88. http://https://www.backcountry.com/ergon-smc3-pro-saddle-erg001a?skid=ERG001A-BK-M&ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6RVJHT04gc2FkZGxlOjE6MTI6R VJHT04gc2FkZGxl

    Wtb Pure V Pro for me. I like the old model better, though. The old one is a bit softer. I've ridden a number of the WTB saddles, and I think they have a solid lineup.
