    Specialized Mimic saddles

    Is anyone using one of the new Specialized saddles? I'm thinking of picking one of these up for my girlfriend for Christmas since she's using my hand-me-down saddle at the moment. Wondering if they live up to the hype. Thanks for any insight!

    Make sure it is the correct size.

    1. Saddles are really personal. More than anything else, they're where you contact the sensitive bits. Better off letting her pick her own.
    2. I don't think all the reviews are that great: https://www.cyclingweekly.com/review...-womens-saddle

    I haven't tried the mimic saddles, but I have a number of other Specialized saddles (one of the Power models is the most recent one) and find them comfy and well made. As long as you can exchange it I would not hesitate to put one under the tree.

    Good point. Last I remember Spesh has a 90 day exchange program for another Spesh saddle. Check with your dealer to confirm.

    Not sure from the spesh side but I work in Trek/bontrager and I would recommend measuring a currently-used saddle she might have and like for a ballpark. I know the Bontragers come in 3 widths for each model. Also, the more expensive trim level is going to be harder padding. Just some things to look for.
