    My Tioga saddle is the most comfy saddle I have used. It's the first saddle that I have used where I don't have to wiggle my butt around to find a comfy spot.

    I know that soft saddles don't work for me. I just sink into them and get really bad chafing from all the contact area between me and the seat.

    Huge fan of the Specialized Romin ti saddle. Super comfy and very lightweight.

    Just switched from a 10 year old Titec Ithys Gove and Easton EC70 carbon post over to a Fizik Gobi and Fizik Cyrano carbon post. New technology and new hype, but they feel almost identical. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Carefulll with brooks saddle.
    They are good saddles but if you are the kind of riderr that is movng around a lot on its saddle, the brooks will nt wrk for you....brooks only have one comfy position.
    expensive cars are a waste of money. Expensive bikes...not so much!

    I'm right there with you. I hate the Fizik that came with my Rocky Mountain. I always go back to the WTB Rocket V. It fits my arse well and so Charmin soft. Aaaahhhhh!

    use a 143 specialized toupe on my road bike which keeps me going with no problems. I put it on my mountain bike for a bit but it wasn't quite cutting it for me. the bontrager evolve that came on my mtb was causing all sorts of numbness.

    picked up the ism adamo peak, and it's fantastic. other than a little pressure i feel on the back of my upper thighs, it's the most comfy saddle i've used. i don't feel any seated pressure anywhere but my sit bones.

    i'll third the WTB pure V. I don't know what it is about it, in your hands, it looks and feels like every other saddle i've tried. 4 hours in, though, it's...well, i don't know. i never made it 4 hours in on any other seat.
    Don't buy all the lies that they feed ya.

    Two saddles I love, Wtb pure V, and Brooks B17. I can ride either one for hours, the Brooks is even comfortable in jeans. One caution on Brooks saddles though, no two are exactly alike. I have two B17s, both are very comfortable, but feel very different.

    I'm also a happy WTB owner. I've used the rocket v and silverado with good results. 12 hour races on the WTB and no pain or discomfort.

    You'll get a lot of different answers and opinions, all will be valid as everyone's saddle needs are pretty specific, however...

    I absolutely love the WTB Rocket V. I've tried a lot of saddles, and these things are like sitting on an easy chair. Like Rod, I've done some endurance stuff and saddle discomfort was the least of my issues.

    Lets see. Just in the last year I have done WTB Silverado, WTB Rocket V, Selle Italia SMP, SDG Falcon, and now the Fizik Tundra 2. The SDG fit me the best I think, and I used it the longest. Sticking with the Fizik for as long as I can though, for the insane weight and cool looks.

    One more nod for the WTB Pure V. I've tried a bunch of saddles and even quite a few WTB saddles, but I like the Pure V the best. I have Pure V saddles on all my bikes.

    the TT version? I have never seen one of these saddles in real life but have been interested for the past six months or so. Are you a lighter or heavier rider? I go around 225 nowadays and about 235 geared up so I have concerns about durability. Do you sit and spin in one position or do you move around a lot while riding? The saddle looks like it would be perfect for adverse weather like rain and muddy conditions. Almost like the Honda Element of saddles. Just would like any more info that you can share. I would just purchase one and try it but Jenson and Pricepoint do not sell them and some of the other places do not have as good of a return policy. Thanks!!

    BTW, I would be putting this saddle on a 907 fat bike so I am curious about the comfort of the saddle over rocks, roots, log overs and other general xc riding conditions. Thanks again

    I like the Pure V, but it's just wide enough that getting behind it is a little difficult for me. Currently trying the Volt, and it has almost the same comfort but is a lot easier to move around.

    Well, I'm painfully Mr. Average. I think that's why it works so good for me. I'm about 170 ready to ride with a Camelback full of water, a tube and only a few tools. I ride both ways. I sit and spin and sometimes I move around a lot. I try to use my legs in different ways to use different muscles. Your weight my be pushing this saddle a little bit. I purchased mine from Ebay. I paid like $45 for it, which is a pretty good price. I'm not sure which model it is.
