Great saddle for this price.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
I have had also Specialized Romin Pro and like this saddle more. I can choose more positions on it. And carbon rails are superior.

Everyone is different but....

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
It's difficult to review a saddle in terms of comfort, as what works for me is no way guaranteed to work for you, but this is by far the best saddle I have used in a long time. I had been using a Fizik Arione, which I found a little too long at the front, it also had no pressure relief groove, which having ridden on before adds to comfort in the saddle for more than a couple of hours.
The saddle is extremely light, the flex in the body is comfortable but not so much that I feel like I am moving about or losing power in big efforts, and in the black colour option, the Specialized branding is very minimal, so does not look out of place on a non-Specialized bike.
Great piece of kit!

Very stiff saddle. Not for everyone

PostedMarch 28, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Uncomfortable
I bought this saddle based on positive reviews in magazines and by other cyclists. I had been using a BG Toupe Plus for more than a year and have been happy with the way the Toupe supports my sit bones and have been comfortable on long rides. Naturally, I thought the Toupe Pro would be the right upgrade as it will be the same saddle but lighter with carbon rails et al. I have only been on them for two 60 mile rides and, unfortunately, it has been rather uncomfortable to say the least after the 30 - 40 mile mark. In fact, towards the end of the 60 mile, it feels as if my conjugals have been ripped to shreds! I will try adjusting the saddle a bit more and give it a bit more time to break in seeing that I spent some decent money on it but if it doesn't get any better after 2 or 3 more long rides, I will have to revert back to the Toupe Plus or find something else.
