Comments about Fizik Vesta Saddle with Kium Rails - Women's:
I wore out the stock saddle on my road bike and needed a new one. Went to REI, got some helpful advice and settled on this one over a Terry saddle. The price was a tad higher than I hoped for, but after about 250 miles, it was worth it! It's not even remotely cushy, certainly no gel, but the salesperson at REI told me that you don't want some super cushy saddle on long rides, because you'll move around too much and your lower back will hurt. So true! My lower back feels great. Plus, the channel in the saddle is awesome for the sensitive girly bits. I thought I wanted the cut-out style, but those saddles were uncomfortable when I tried them.
Side note: the salesperson who fitted the saddle on to my bike insisted that the nose needs to be higher than you think it does...I would have had it tipped lower, but he was right - I use my sit bones more, protecting other sensitive areas. Really fantastic saddle - the sit bones hurt after 60 miles, but there's nothing you can do about that! Everything else feels great.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
