I bought this saddle to replace the Fizik Anatares I previously had. Don't get me wrong, the Fizik was a great looking and low-weight seat, but I then started to have problems... Down there, if you know what I mean... I figured the numbness was just apart of cycling, so I just dealt with it. Little did I know that my broad seat was causing pressure on my perineum area resulting in the numbness. Turns out this numbness can lead to erectile dysfunction, which at 25 I do not need (may be TMI, but hey, its the truth.
A little research found that this a common problem among cyclist, and there are many saddles made to fight this. I decided to go with the SLR Superflow because of the relatively low weight and profile. Upon receipt of the product (which was promptly shipping by Bike Tires Direct) I was amazed on how big the cut-out actually was... Its massive! It took no time at all to get use to the saddle and I must say that I immediately noticed a difference. I've been riding with this saddle for a couple months now and I can gladly say that the numbness is gone and I am back to my former self.
This saddle combines expert craftsmanship from Selle Italia while providing ample comfort and relief from perineum pressure. I have nothing but praise for this seat, and I highly recommend it if you are facing this problem yourself.
Thank you for your feedback.
