Comfortable and light.

PostedOctober 12, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
First class service from Evans. They also price matched the saddle! The saddle is light weight and very comfortable. I use it for cross country and all mountain riding and it fits the bill. I've had a few saddles in the past made by Specialized and Bontrager and this is by far the most comfortable! Highly recommended.

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Felt hard when first used but forgot it was there after 40minutes. Not justfor mountain bikes, mines on a racing bike, works brilliant.

Fizik's claimed weight is farsical

PostedMay 16, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Cons: Poor quality, Heavy, Expensive
Fed up with cheaper light but uncomfortable saddles I decided to splash out on this much more expensive saddle because it was meant to be both light and comfortable. I had already returned the Fizik Muzzle Gobi because the muzzle dropped off and was lost on the first ride and the saddle was heavier than the Fizik's claimed weight.
Sadly this Gobi saddle also weighs 30g heavier than the claimed 230g so I've not used it and will be returning it . I'm now of the impression that all the Fizik saddles are heavier than claimed. A big thumbs down.

Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Have tried a few saddles, but the gobi is really well put together and well shaped, it felt good from the off, and gets better once `worn in`.
Recommended.

All my bikes have one now

PostedSeptember 15, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I bought a Gobi saddle years ago to make my hard tail bike more comfortable, and it worked a treat. I have subsequently bought two more for other bikes.
Wing flex works well for a comfortable ride.
Easy to move forward or drop off the back of the seat without catching the pants.
The early Gobi has a very narrow nose - the current one is a bit safer :)
