I am contemplating getting a Koobi Xenon saddle. What worries me a little is the ample seams that run lengthwise along the nose. I am not so much worried about the chafing risk as the risk that these seams will wear out my shorts quickly. Has anyone got specific experience with this particular saddle that they can comment on?

I used this saddle for a month, and I think it is a quality saddle. It is wider in the back than the web site picture would suggest. This is why I returned it, ultimately.

The stitching was never a problem for me. If the saddle was not too wide for me, I would gladly pay the $100 for it. If I had to ride one again, I would not be upset at all.
