I use to have a giro pave saddle which I found way too hard. I am just wandering whether the twin tech makes a difference and is the saddle more comfortable then the original pave.

I've had one basic pavé and twintech pavé. For my needs the nose of the saddle is too soft for time trialing w/ roadbike & saddle afap or similar other situations. There is no great difference between those two, leather is too thin it wears out too quick.

If I sit in the middle or back in pavé, it's ok.

I think pavé ain't hard saddle at all; hard comes if it does not fit for one. I have SLR now and it's way harder than pavé, but it fits perfectly so no trouble at all. But give me a flite and I must stand after 30 minutes 'til ride is over...no kidding.

I have been very pleased with my twintech Pave. It looks great on my Trek OCLV 5200 and I never had any trouble with my 'zone of the truth' once I found the right position. Only now, after one season of 10.000+ kms one of the seams is cracking. What am I going to do? Such a shame of an otherwise lovely thing. Cheers. Luke. Amsterdam. www.iwaarden.com

I have two twin teck pave saddles. One on my regular road bike and one on my tri/tt bike. I like the softer nose of the twin tech than the regular pave. I tried the SLR and hated it. The nose was far to wide, and the edges gave me blister lines in my crotch. Love the pave twin tech though. I ordered mine from Fizik got the colors and options I wanted. Check out the website. The price is a little more, but it includes express mail from Italy.
I've got two, just bought a third.terry b

I decided to experiment with a TT Pave and frankly I think it's the most comfortable saddle I own (compared to Avocet, Regal, Flite, SLR.) Very surprising.

If you're concerned about the cost for a test, lurk around eBay. I've managed to secure all of them for about 1/2 price. Typically 30-50 bucks, brand new. Ben's Bikes has one listed (albeit in odd colors that just happened to work for my bike) for $49 - they're reliable and they ship when they say they will.
