This is my first foray into split nose saddles and I'm a convert. For a saddle without much padding it is highly comfortable in an aggressive riding position and I've had no numbness issues. I purchased this one for my track bike and I'm considering a second for my road bike. It's definitely not the cheapest saddle and if you're a weight weenie who has to have carbon fibre everything this definitely isn't going to be for you. However, if your main requirement from a saddle is a comfortable place for your derrire andor have perineal numbness it may be worth trying this saddle.
