I have been using other Ergon saddles but wanted a bit more vibration damping for running skinny tires on our tarred and graveled roads with gaps every 100 feet in the asphalt . Combining the wider width for my apparently wide set sit bones, and the excellent damping properties of the "magic beads", this is an awesome but still lightweight and firm saddle, which results in surprising comfort, but still high efficiency. Highly recommended! I have the lighter titanium rails so the weight is very competitive. And of course thanks to the Ergon design, no trace of numbness down there on long rides.
I love these things but Iï¿½d suggest theyï¿½re not for everyone. Very hard but the minimalist design and ergonomics keep my hands from going numb, which was happening with my other, cushier grips. They are super grippy and come with a guide to help you position them correctly so you get the ergonomic part in the right spot.
I've been running these grips since 2012 and with every new bike purchase, the new grips get tossed in a box and these guys go on! They really help with wrist fatigue on long rides and the nub of a bar end iss just enough to offer that additional hand position. I have tried other Ergon models but these are my favorite. If you suffer sore wrists (some of use aren't as young as we once were) these are a good go to! If you aren't a fan of bar ends, they have a version for you there as well.
