I love my old bike saddle. The problem is that I couldn’t get it adjusted just so that I wouldn’t have numb genitals after 15 minutes of riding. In search of a new saddle, I purchased the Selle SMP Evolution from all3sports.com. The price seemed a bit high ($239) for a saddle considering I put it on an $800 bike. But my thinking was that if it alleviated the numbness and potential ED, then it was well worth it.
Last Friday, I received the saddle and put it on per the instructions. By the way, your English really sucks Selle SMP. I like the tag line: “Designed on your body.” Anyway, after a short ride around the block after having already worked out that day, I thought it would be good. Saturday came and I took it out for a 16 mile bike ride. Granted, there was a lot of standing to get up hills, and therefore I couldn’t say I was in the saddle for the whole time, but the results were astonishing! I suffered no numbness at all. Today I went out for my usual 14 miler and the results are the same. I spend more time in the aero position and no numbness. As for general comfort, it doesn’t seem to do a better job than my last saddle (Selle San Marco Tri saddle), but I am a firm believer in this awesome saddle. The $239 plus shipping costs was well worth it!
Only 30 miles of riding and not all in the aero position is probably a bit early to tell how things will really work out, so I will update the post in a week or two.
