Only put 20 miles on it so far, but this saddle is an AMAZING value for the price. I've ridden Specialized Power, Specialized Romin, and Pro Stealth. Tried this Selle Italia when it came stock on a bike, and figured i'd be swapping it for the Pro Stealth and saving 100g+ in the process. The problem is that the Selle Italia is SO comfortable. The sides flex, there's a bit of padding and when I rode it back to back with the Pro, this was just cushier. For the price, it's definitely worth trying out. Will update the review when I have some longer rides completed, but this seems to be an amazing price/performance/comfort option.
I bought this saddle based on two glowing article reviews. It measured what I thought was correct for my sit bones. It should have been similar in fit to the many other racing saddles I have used over the years. It hits my sit bones in all the wrong places. l could barely ride twenty miles with this saddle, and I paid for it in pain. Every saddle is different, and some work and some don't for every person. I also really didn't like the non-slip surface. I am used to slightly altering my position as I change positions with my hands on the bars, it is impossible to do with this saddle. It sticks to your shorts and makes slight position changes difficult. I would be careful expecting to much from this seat. Secondly I was very disappointed in the customer service I received from BikeTiresDirect. When I returned it they said because it was used I could only get a store credit. No refund. When I questioned the rep he said they recommend wrapping the seat rails with electrical tape to prevent marks. I never was given this advice and there is no mention of it on the website or packaged with the seat. And anyway this seat has chrome-plated rails which don't show marks, so I feel I was poorly treated here.
Price was great, cutout is in the sweetspot, and Sella Italia knows how to make a great saddle. A little extra padding for my 50 year old butt is nice and the flexibility built into the design allows for efficient pedaling. I sit way back and this is perfect for that.
I have only ridden it a few times and really felt the difference from the stock saddle from my gravel bike. You could tell there's flex in it when you hit a bump and it doesn't hurt your bum. Can't wait to ride longer and enjoy it.
I really like the shape and it's great for shorter rides (1-2 hours). On longer rides the lack of padding is noticeable, so I wouldn't buy it for all-day endurance rides. Overall I like the Specialized Power more, but this is a really great price so I don't regret the purchase at all.
