|What are your opinions on the Selle Italia saddles with the huge cut out? I'm looking for a good saddle for rollers and have a Coda right now and tried a Specialized Body Comp which was crap.

|I've used both the Flite Gelflow and SLR Trans Am. Personally, I've found the SLR Trans Am definitely the most comfortable of the two. It has a nice flex in the center, which seems to do wonders in relieving pressure from your junk. The Flite Gelflow isn't all that bad but the shell is much harder.|

|I just mounted up a Prolink Gel Flow TA on the winter trainer bike and it was great from the get-go. I have a standard Prolink TA on another bike so I know the shape fits but this one seems to not need the break-in time the standard Prolink needed.
It is by far the most comfortable seat I've used to date. After the first hour and a half session, the boys were still feeling good. I highly recommend it.

|First, it's not super light. Second, you can fit a Topeak Wedge Pack on it because of the rail design. Other than that, I love that seat, very comfy.|

|I used a Selle Italia TransAm Max (not gel flow) for about a year. It did a good job reducing pressure on sensitive areas (ie, no numbness) but was too firm for me and not the right shape. I currently use a Koobi Enduro, which is the most comfortable saddle I have tried. They have a good chart and descriptions on their website to help you pick the right saddle. Reasonably light. Koobi has a 30-day money-back return policy if you don't like it. I figured I had little to lose, so tried one out and I'm glad I did. Their saddles are manufactured by Selle Italia but have different shapes and dimensions. Another advantage of the Koobi is their rails are situated in such a way that they fit well on frames with steep seat tube angles.|| |
