I have a Fizik Arione saddle on my tri bike right now but I am not digging it from a long ride comfort perspective. It's fine for short distances, but starts to get pretty uncomfortable around Olympic distance rides and worse on longer rides.
Can I ask this group for recommendations on good saddles that combine performance and cushioning and would be recommeded for longer rides, i.e., HIM and IM-length riding?
Thanks in advance!
I've got a profile design tri stryke sitting unused in my parts bin - bought it, rode it once for maybe 30 miles, an put my ratty airone tri back on the bike...want to trade?
i use an older selle italia flight with teh cutout in the center, and it works very well.
but i think the newer updated version is the gel flow flight with the cutout, have never tried it but it looks very similar.
like you i used the fizik arione for about 2 days and didn't find it at all comfortable even though at least 8 people i knew loved the thing and used it for ironman races and training for a year before i got it.
