65 yo male, 6ft tall, 170 lbs. I ride roads that arenï¿½t always glass smooth. Usually 30- 60 miles. For the last year, Iï¿½ve been riding a Selle Anatomica and find it very comfortable. The give in the leather helps tame rough roads. Wanted to try something that was lighter and the Terry had great reviews. Had I not experienced the Selle Anatomica, I probably would have stayed with the Terry and hoped to toughen up my rear end. . After 2 rides of 35 miles each, my sit bones were sore on the Terry, so back to the store it goes. As an aside, my wife has ridden a Terry Butterfly Ti for the last 10 years and loves it. I find her Butterfly to be softer than the menï¿½s Ti Fly Gel and can ride it for 30 miles with less discomfort than the Menï¿½s Ti Fly Gel.
I changed to this specific saddle because I needed relief from pressure while on my 30-40 mile daily rides. I read other reviews of this saddle and decided to test this product from Terry. I have used this saddle for 3 weeks now and have no negative comments. The Butterfly Century is well constructed with a women's specific cutout, and materials to prevent pressure soreness. It fits well, and I am 5'2, size 1012. Thank you, Terry, for listening to those concerns from women and developing the product!
My old Butterfly Century gave out after 6000-7000 miles, so I bought a new one. I've tried a few other seats, but then I go back to my Butterfly Century. The Poron XRD does actually absorb shocks, and the fairly wide cut-out works well for me.
I put this saddle on my hardtail because I'm doing the Dirty Kanza 200. I need something that is going to get me through the whole ride. So far I've been on 3 hr rides and it feels good. Terry saddles have always been my go to saddles and never have I been unhappy with them.
