An OK saddle but that's it.

PostedApril 2, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Looks great
Cons: Uncomfortable
The BG Henge Expert looks better in the flesh than in the pictures, it is nicely cut away and minimalist. Weight saving over my existing saddle was however negligible. I have a Trek Fuel and brought this to replace the stock saddle which is white. I have been using the BG Henge for nearly a month now and it is simply not as comfortable as the saddle I removed. There is a lack of padding on the top and although I got my butt measured to get the correct size it makes my sit bones sore. This is something I have never experienced before (Flight Titanium for the last 10 years). I am going to give it some more time but I am thinking of taking it off again. Anatomy is very individual so it may well suit someone else perfectly.

Nice and light but a bit expensive

PostedMarch 28, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
I decided to go for a body-geometry Specialized saddle as I was not getting on with my SDG Bel-Air which was giving me pain after 15 mins. This saddle is constructed very well and is extremely light due to the titanium rails, but i've been struggling to see the benefits of it due to the price tag. The saddle isn't much more comfortable than my Bel-Air, infact its the same shape if only a little wider. I was hoping for more padding than the Bel-Air for the price but its the same high density foam. I have managed to get a little more comfort out of it by changing the angle in which its bolted to the seatpost. It seems to work better when its bolted with a flatter profile. All in all its a good saddle which is very strong and light, just dont expect much more comfort for the price. If you want more comfort, I think its best to invest invest in a gel saddle rather than getting hung up on shape and design.

This product is high quality & built to last

PostedFebruary 17, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great, versatility
Very comfortable- first time I have had a saddle other than SDG and am pleasantly surprised with the feel. It has a good rear shape that helps you to find position and is wide enough at the front to allow you to sit perched on the front when doing muddy climbs. Great for XC and no discomfort having done long rides.
