so I've tired many different saddles this year (six so far).
My most recent is a pretty radical design/concept
from ISM (Road version). This one has about 3cm of the
nose cut off and a very large space in the middle.
We will see how this one works.
"What the heck is that,...?"
"What do you think Uschi ?"
(Update, After a few weeks of using the ISM Road model, I've had none of the issues I was experiencing, saddle sores. This Road model is a noticeably wider at the "nose" than the other saddles I've used (including "womens" specific saddles), and also harder, even though it is pretty padded. I experienced bruising on my sit bones the first week or so, as pressure is directed onto the sit bones, as designed. Once I got over this, I've had no issues since. I had to tilt the nose down a fraction and although it is about 3cm shorter, I had to move it forward a bit so the nose is only about 1.5cm back at the front from my other saddles, i.e. not a full 3cm back. I ride 99.9% of the time in aero,... but when I'm not in aero on this saddle it feels "strange", maybe because of the width??,... but for my needs, so far so good.)
