The Pro Falcon saddle tips the scales at just 155g, making it very light when compared to similar offerings from other brands. If you wanted carbon rails and a carbon shell on a Fizik or Selle Italia saddle, you would have to pay significantly more.

We found this saddle to be very comfortable, even on rides of over five hours. Being a flat saddle, Pro claims this will better suit riders who have a stable position, but who also like to move along the saddle. We would agree with this assessment, so if you are lacking in core strength, it may be worth looking at a curved saddle that will hold you in place.

To accommodate for different width sit-bones, the saddle is available in three sizes: 132, 142 and 154mm. The Pro Falcon saddle is also available with or without the perineal pressure-relieving cutout, so it should suit most rider shapes and weights.

We had no worries while using this saddle. The cutout works well — in particular the edges are soft and didn’t pinch. We even liked the way it looked on our bike. With plenty of options, this is a great saddle that will be staying on our bike for the foreseeable future.
