Tried a Selle Italia gel flow, San Marco Island Ponza -stocker, Specialized Toupe, Fizik Aliante, and still looking. The toupe was the worst, sit bones killing after 10 miles. The fizik seems good but needs a cutout. Any ideas?

i swear by the San Marco Rolls. i'll also use the Regal and the old (no longer made) Selle Italia Turbo (both have pretty much the same functional shape as a Rolls). i've tried everything in the past 20+ years and you won't be able to convince me to stray from these.

i've tried a bunch as well and I gotta say the WTB Rocket V Pro is the one for me .I put one on my MTB also .I managed a bike shop for 7 year's and have sat on ALOT of saddle's once you get these adjusted just sit and forget.I do 45-55 road mile's during the week and MTB once on the weekend with no comfort issues.

I guess its a personal thing. For me their is nothing better than a Toupe, but then i did get my sit bones measured on the Specialized butt measuring device. Riding a 143.

I gave the rocket V a try and so far so good. I think because of the curve of the saddle, I just need to play with leveling, but its the best I have tried so far and about half the price of the others thanks!
