Looks great, well built, but ultimately not very comfortable
by Mike W.
Saddles are very individualistic, but for me (a long time Arione user) this saddle was not very comfortable. The cutout, which should relieve pressure, instead simply create excessive pressure on the ridges around the cutout. Went back to the Arione with a normal chanel cut into it.
