Selle SMP's revolutionary ergonomic design developed for high performance road racing saddles is now available for the off-road rider with a bit of extra padding, ample support and a lower price tag. The Hybrid saddle uses the same unique, soft-tissue-friendly-shape as the rest of SMP line -- the wide cut-away and dropped nose relieve pressure and promotes blood circulation. Thicker foamed elastomer padding provides plenty of cushioning for rough terrain. Carbon fiber infused Nylon-12 shell. AISI 304 tubular steel rails. Nap leather cover. Foamed elastomer padding. 275mm Long x 140mm Wide. 320 grams. Black. Made in Italy.

In the future, all saddles will look like this.

Not sure I can bring myself to call any saddle comfortable, but after trying 50 - 60 saddles over the years, this is definitely the least uncomfortable saddle I've ever used. My butt is highly sensitive, so I need something with a decent amount of padding - which this has - without being overly wide - like nearly all saddles with this kind of padding are. Didn't have any major numbness issues, but not having the pressure in the middle is definitely more comfortable. The one problem with this saddle is getting the position right. You CAN'T take the setback - and, perhaps, height - measurements from a traditional saddle. It seems the BB to tip-of-saddle should be 5 - 15 mm LESS than a normal saddle, to keep you in the same KOP - or however you measure it - position. (The rails on these are VERY long. I can put this on a bike that I can't get other saddles far enough rearward.) Saddle may also need to be 5 mm or more lower. Tilt is also very important. I believe the recommendation is from level to 5 degrees down. (If I put mine even a degree or 2 down, my power drops 10 - 15%) Also note, due to the design, you may need a model that is 10 - 20 mm narrower than you would use on a traditional saddle. If you can't get comfortable on a normal saddle, I think you definitely should try an SMP, but you will have to tinker around with the fit, and you may need to try several models to find the right one. (I tried the TRK, but it was too wide for me.)

Excellent saddle, fast delivery, and price match guarantee sealed the deal!

I spent a lot of time looking for a value saddle to use on a 30 year old rehab (this saddle ended up being about half the original cost of the bike), but I needed one to help alleviate a ahem pressure issue. I found this on another site which did not offer the breadth of product BikeTiresDirect.com did. When I was able to redeem the price match I was also able to get the other parts I needed. Delivery was fast, ordering was painless, products all as described.

Did not stand up to a cross country trip.

I rode across the country on this saddle, and half way through the front end tore away from the seat. Saddle was OK, but not super comfortable.

Comfortable, but wide

This is an extremely comfortable saddle, but quite wide. If you have a narrow pelvis, be aware that your legs may rub. To me, however, it's still worth it to have eliminated numbness entirely.

The Selle SMP Hybrid is an Outstanding Saddle

This is an outstanding saddle! I didn't even have to get used to this saddle. It was comfortable from the word go. It allows me to get in the drops and stay there. No pressure on those sensitive areas as I move forward or back on the saddle. For those counting every gram it may be a bit heavy, but if your looking for comfort in any position, and all day long, the Selle SMP Hybrid this is a great choice.
