What is the most comfortable gel saddle with open channel for the prostate? I weigh 185 lbs. and ride a steel bike 30 miles a week (group rides and an occasional triathlon). Comfort is top priority (vs. weight).

Comfort is a matter of personal taste, but I would recommend a Terry Liberator. It can be ordere with titanium rails if you want to shave grams. Very comfortable saddle, I used it for the California Aids Ride last year with no problems.

The nice thing about Terry saddles is they come with with a 30 or 60 day money back guarantee.

not the fly model, but the original one. thought it would be comfortable, but it is definately not. chafes you where the cutout is and the padding goes into all the wrong places. YMMV.

As I said, comfort is a personal thing. I had a Selle Italia I couldn't stand, other people loved it.

The good thing about Terry is the 60 day money-back guarantee. Even if it doesn't fit you...not to worry...

Ive gone through 9 saddles and eventually ended up with the wtb podium. Comes in steel for around 20 or 25 or ti for a lot more. Try any of the saddles with the cut out in the bottom, not the full cut out, just the plastic shell - Serfas and Wtb. Im as happy as a lamb

Ive never ridden the terry so I cant offer an informed opinion on it. I have ridden the specialized body geometry saddle on a few different bikes though and found it fairly comfortable. They make various incarnations of it from about 20 to 120 dollars. higher end ones are a bit narrower and use lighter rails etc. The saddle was designed for prostate relief. last I checked they still had 2001 Body Geometry Pro saddles on the website cheap. like 25 bucks. it looks a bit sportier than the terry too if that matters. Im riding a selle italia flite gel right now and have no issues to that end so if a higher end saddle is your preference check the flite.

it does not have a cutout but it has a recessed area and it is the most comfortable saddle i have used. SI century trans am was fairly painful and the san marco era was exquisite torture.
