At least they matter to me (of course saddles are a personal fit thing)
#1: the convex shape: Every saddle I've ever been on has a design to CRADLE the sit bones. Downside: big tendon attaches there, so it has to be in contact with the saddle all the time. THIS SADDLE lets just the inside of your sits bones rest on the curve (it's crowned, like a road for drainage); since the pelvis is a single bone, slightly pushing outward on the opposing bones is a stable point; it has minimal but enough padding for those contact points, and the tendon doesn't touch the saddle at all. Wish I could draw a picture...
#2: the rear metal frame attachment points are well aft of where the sit-bones contact the saddle, so the plastic shell can flex a fair amount, like on impact, whereas most saddles have those rear frame bits directly under your sit-bones, so you take the full impact and the shell can't flex at all.
The cutout is in the right place to do its job properly. And the price is pretty darn reasonable. Yay.
Anyway, it's the most comfortable saddle I've had in 40 years of riding, and I've spent up to $250 on other saddles. Works for me, might for you too.
