The Fabric Scoop Gel Elite Saddle is wider and shorter than the non-gel model, featuring three large gel inserts to add comfort in a performance package. A round profile offers more support for riders who ride with more of their weight on the saddle, and because Fabric uses a three-layer construction that vacuum bonds the cover to the base, they're able to use a softer foam not possible with standard stretch-and-staple constructions.
Claimed weight is 280 g. 155 mm width x 260 mm length.
- Cro-moly rails
- Nylon base
- Synthetic waterproof cover

Well made, comfortable saddle, for men or women
Saddle choice is quite personal, but assuming its shape and size are appropriate for your anatomy, the Fabric Scoop Gel Saddle is worth your consideration. It's nicely designed, the materials are good, the staple-free construction is nifty, and it's comfortable. I find the Scoop Gel to be more comfortable than the regular Scoop saddle, especially for longer rides, because it is slightly wider and softer, without being too wide or too soft. (And never mind that this Gel version of the Scoop is sometimes labeled as a Women's saddle. There is nothing womanly about it that prevents a man from using it, and similarly, nothing manly about the regular Scoop saddle that prevents a woman from using it. Just get what fits you.) Recommended.
