Regular SLR vs. SLR Trams Am(6 posts)

Regular SLR vs. SLR Trams Amopencl

Anyone tried both of these saddles yet? I have the regular SLR and it's very comfortable... even for 5-6hour rides and centuries... I am thinking of switching to the SLR trans am for the magic cut-out hahaha

Besides for a little extra weight, is it as comfortable as the regular SLR?
Why switch if the current one is very comfortable...JL

Plus the cutouts in seats are based upon dubious information at best.

Stick with what works.

For peace of mind. Cut outs definitely relief the pressure going to the arteries/veins. The extra pressure might be insignificant in causing EDF, but still..... better safe than sorry...

which limited the type of seat post that I could run. Subsequently I have a really nice easton carbon post sitting in my garage taking up shelf space.

Since you said the trans am have thicker rails, I assume that you have both the regular SLR and the trans am SLR? How do they compare in terms of comfort level?
Basically the same, but I have a skinny butt so I needed more...rtyszko

cushining. NOw any time that my butt gets sore at least I don't wonder if I bought the saddle with the most cush.
