This minimalist saddle has a racy look to it. With one of Specialized’s lightest levels of padding you really feel like you’re in the driving seat. The lack of padding gave a harsh ride on our pothole filled commute, but on smoother tarmac surfaces it had the perfect level of padding which gave great levels of support on longer rides.
