I've used this Saddle for over 5 years and 20,000 miles. I've tried competitive brands but quickly came back to the Selle SMP Pro Saddle. My rides are usually 40miles and I have not experienced any discomfort why using this saddle.
I have approximately 150 miles on the new saddle and the jury is still out.
I've made a number of adjustments (height, angle, forward and back) and can't seem to find the sweet spot. I may also not quite qualify as a Clyde either, as the Pro seat seems a bit wide. The raised lettering is also an issue from time-to-time, I can feel it occasionally through my riding shorts.
I do believe that the design has reduced numbness which was one major goal in purchasing this saddle.
I'm going to give the saddle some more time and hold out the hope that I will get the set-up right.
i'm 6'4, 240. it works for me. wide saddle is very comfortable. i really doubt that a 5'6 140 beanpole wold get much outta this. i had my doubts at first - have to set the height by leg extension - not measure. once i got it right, it's perfect. i ride 5000year and about 10 centruies, i'm 58.
I did get that advice from my urologist who is also an avid cyclist. He pulled up the Selle SMP website and showed me all the different models. Said I should have one for all my bikes. I thought at the time that it was too expensive and didn't look right. Later, I found one of the molded Selle SMP models that was cheaper and tried it. I now have 4 Selle SMPs, one for each road bike and two for the tandem. The shape works, all the weight goes to the sit bones and none to the important bits. No numbness and no saddle sores. Wish I had found this saddle years ago!
