Finding the best saddle for you can be an arduous (and not mention expensive!) task with everyone you ask having their own perception of what saddle is the best and most comfortable and if you follow their advice might end up in the same position as you were before; with a saddle that makes you want to 😭 within minutes of sitting on it.
With so many different brands and so many saddle shapes and sizes available it can be a mine field of where to start and what to look for. The most important factor with a saddle is that it will be completely personal for you and you won't know until you've actually sat on it and ridden your bike for a number of miles.
Most bikes come with the cheapest saddle and usually coloured to match the bike but bike manufacturers know that this is likely to be one of the first things you will be looking to replace.
We use the Selle Italia id match system which can help narrow the search and uses your measurements to help identify what type of saddle is better and which ones will likely cause discomfort.
We have demo saddles available from Selle Italia and Fizik to test ride.
