As we know, saddle preference is very personal as our pelvic floor differs greatly. Prior to beggin your saddle search, is beneficial to know if your sitting area will match better to a fairly flat saddle such as this or you need a more rounded profile design. I found this saddle extremely comfortable, I have big thighs and the wide nose does not affect my ride as other reviews might suggest, my position is not super aggressive and somewhat upright, and I still find saddle comfy and supportive. Saddle feels stiff but i don't dislike after many hours in the road.
I tried this saddle coming from a Specialized Power and Power Arc. I liked the position those put me in but the narrow nose was causing some discomfort and chafing. The PRO Stealth is similar to the Power, but the wider nose makes a world of difference. I've been on the Stealth for about 6 weeks and have not experienced any unwanted pressure or chaffing. Considering putting one on my TT bike as well.
I have tried many saddles over the years including most of the top brands this saddle is the best of them all.
Extremely comfortable and can remain in the drops. I also put one on my time trial bike and it is just as good on that
Right out of the gate I knew this saddle design was perfect for me, though I think anyone would appreciate it as much as me?
First week 30 and 40 mi. training ride I had zero issues. All I did was mount the saddle using my previous height, aft, and tilt measurements and I was golden. Rode a century that weekend my butt was the least of my worries!
Thinking about buying another one!
I've been looking for a saddle with a large relief channel for one of my bikes that has a low rail stack height to replace a Selle Italia Super Flow which is not comfortable for longer rides (longer than 3 hours). The low stack height is is needed for me on this bike to accommodate my fit because of the seat post height limit on the low side. After testing a few and reading multiple reviews and asking questions on forums I decided to try this out and it's exactly what I was looking for. I normally do a dozen more more 100 mile + rides a year, and this saddle has what I need to be comfortable on these. There's just enough padding and flex to be comfortable on long rides, not so much that it increases the weight. There's also plenty of room to move forward and back on the saddle for climbing, comfort etc. The nose is not so wide that it causes my thighs to rub it like many TT/short nose saddles but it has enough padding at the nose you can sit on it comfortably for a long time. The relief channel goes all the way to the tip of the nose too unlike some other options. Measurements that were important to me - rail stack height 44mm (in the center, top of saddle to bottom of rails). Nose of saddle 50mm wide measured at 40mm back from the front tip.
I'm not sure why but this saddle caused me nerve damage. The cushioning was not thick enough. I have a number of race saddles and for some reason this one just hit me wrong. Looks good. Light. Thought it would be great. Unfortunately it wasn't for me. Might be great for you though!
I'm a convert to stubby saddles since I've been trying to rotate the pelvis correctly for both aggressive positioning and for long rides. These short saddles really help you get a neutral back when in the drops or low stretched on the hoods.
I've have been using a Specialized Power Pro saddle for a while and wanted to try this alternative. Very happy I did. I ride the wide 152 (or 155 Power) and actually like the extra nose width this saddle has. It's less grippy than the Power but on the other hand it has is it has a little range front-to-back though. It's also flatter than the Power so again sliding back-n-forth is easier although I think these saddles really are about locking in a single good position and just allowing enough rotation for sitting more upright.
