Rated 5 out of 5 by from well done respiro! The saddle w/ my new Cannondale synapse carbon was as stiff/hard as the frame - - after 15 miles it was torture time. Have a Serfas RX (split) saddle on a touring/casual bike and very happy with it but decided to go with a slimmer/more "racy" saddle in the Respiro after reading the reviews. After my first 25 mile ride I was way more comfortable than I was in a half mile than I was w/ the original. The split in both these saddles is what really does the trick for my "central boy parts". Only 2 rides so far so can't speak to durability. Very nice looks as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Seating My mountain bike came with a competitive seat with basically no padding. I ride about 16 miles twice a week in the Penasquitos Canyon. We are in southern California and ride in temperatures between 40 and 108 degrees for 2 hours at a time. This seat was recommended by a store expert and I bought it knowing I could bring it back if I was not happy. My first 2 hour ride was at 103 degrees and this seat was terrific. Normally my butt hurts when I on my last mile so I have to switch cheeks to finish the ride. I could have gone again it was so comfortable. The seat was easy to get off of and behind so as to be in the correct riding position. It kept the crotch area cooler and kept the sweat from chaffing my legs. It allowed my to do my second ride this week with no pain. I love this seat. If you get it positioned right for you, you will love this seat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle Very comfortable on long rides. Good padding which is very helpful on bumpy New York City streets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent saddle for the price I bought this saddle for my GT Timberline that I use for my 20 mile commute. It works exceptionally well, and I had a great first ride this afternoon. Definitely an improvement over my previous saddle, and it looks fantastic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than stock saddle I really like the saddle. Much better than my stock saddle that came with the bike. I don't necessarily have to wear padded shorts with this saddle so commuting rides are much better. I would recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Very comfortable. I got this to replace the stock seat (racing style), which had no padding at all. This is the same size and shape but much more squishy and supportive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic saddle I put this saddle on my trek DS 8.4, and I could not be happier. I tend to go on longer rides, and the added cushioning makes that a lot easier, and keeps me comfortable even if I can't always ride as often as I would like.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from An OK saddle that's very noisy I've had this comfortable seat on my mountain bike for a couple years now. It's gotten more than moderate use. It has become incredibly squeeky and noisy to the point of great distraction. I've used oil and WD-40 on it, but my guess is that there are too many assembly pieces that accommodate air-flow ("Respiro"), resulting in really irritating noise. One can say the seat has gotten old, OK, but it's not that old. I shall buy a different saddle. I think the "respiro" function is detrimental to the saddle integrity over too short a time, and provides minimal relief anyway.
