    Undercarriage starting to tingle, in a bad way, during a long right? It might be time for a new saddle, like the Selle SMP Dynamic Saddle. It's all about reducing pressure in key sensitive zones, with a dramatically dropped nose to provide a flat base without exerting excess stress on your down-belows. There's also an extra-large central channel to relieve pressure on soft tissue areas, and the back of saddle is raised to help you achieve an efficient pedaling position without the pain of squashed sit bones.

    Selle built the Dynamic's shell from a composite of nylon and carbon, which gives you a firm pedaling platform that won't transmit excessive road vibrations into your rear. The cushion comes from the foam elastomer padding, which is firm but forgiving, and the exterior of the saddle is either leather or Lorica, depending on color. Both are durable and smooth, and there's no weight difference to speak of. Finally, the Dynamic clamps to your seatpost via rugged stainless steel rails, so you can ride as hard as you can with no slippage or bending.

    • Nylon and carbon composite shell
    • Leather (black) or Lorica (white) cover

    The Perfect Girlfriend

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Sorry to rain on the love fest, but for me it was like that girl who was perfect 2 days a week that I couldn't live everyday.
    I had been happy on the WTB devo until it was discontinued.
    I know a lot of people who swear by the SMP and I got a chance to do short rides on both the composit and dynamic. I ride 2 bikes and in February I put a dynamic on one. I alternated as I tweaked the set up of the SMP. It took time to come to terms with it but by April it had become my preferred seat for long rides. For the first hour I was aware that it didn't have much padding, but 3 hours later I'd find that the shape worked and the lack of padding didn't matter. In late June I got a chance to get a good used one and set up both bikes the same. At this point I was riding about 200 miles per week and a funny thing happened. After having only a handful of saddle sores since the days of LeMond they became chronic. Finally in August I hit the doctor up for some triamcinolone cream and expected them to disappear. Before one would heal there was always another to take it's place. October rolled around and I got the doc to give me the higher concentration which helped, but They didn't disappear until I quit riding the SMP. But like an old flame I couldn't stay away and went back for another try. 2 days and 2 3-4 hour rides later bam another sore popped up. By this time it was late November and I had spent 3-4k miles on the SMP. I also moved on to a Fabric scoop as a second saddle which shares a common characteristic with the devo: They are both relatively wide and flat side to side across the back.
    So what went wrong? The dynamic is slightly narrower and rolls off more side to side which makes it effectively even more narrow and puts all of pressure on narrow strips next to the cut out. I average over 7k miles a year and wanted to love it but I just couldn't tolerate the saddle sores. But just like a hot girlfriend I still have one set up on a spare seat post in case I decide to blow on the embers one more time.
    Read Steve Hoggs website for more info than I can possibly give you. The irony is that the dynamic with padding seemed to be a safer choice, but in hindsight the wider effective width of the composit may have worked better for me.

    It's the go to!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Took a long time to try this saddle due to the price, wish I would have tried it first! Yes it's goofy looking, but hands down has the most contact of any saddle I've tried. Meaning more contact = distribution of weight on you nether soft tissues = more time riding without irritation.

    I've found it works great tilted 5* nose down.

    Comfort

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the second one I own. It is instantly comfortable and not binding in areas that other saddles grab you. I love the freedom to move around on long rides and still feel comfortable.

    Test ride.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I test rode this saddle and the SMP 209. Bought the 209. But I wish I had tried this one longer. My impressions of the SMP line of saddles:

    First, gentlemen, it is really important to protect the soft tissues around the perineum while riding 2-3 (or more) hours in the saddle. Urological problems can develop (ouch!) if the perineal area (including the pudental nerve) is compressed for long periods of time; especially if you ride in an aggressive forward position. Hence, the Selle SMP line of saddles.

    That said, saddle choice is extremely personal. Variables such as specific physiology (sit bone width), position on the bike, fitness level, and BMI result in... no size/model works best for everyone.

    So, SMP makes a lot of models. Check out the SMP website (or google Steve Hogg) for fit and correct model info. It seems the "Dynamic" or the "Lite 209" (inexplicable name) are the models to buy for most fit male riders of average pelvis width.

    100% hand made in Italy (and beautifully so), real leather (in black).

    *Important note: Setting up this saddle properly on your bike (usually nose down 2-5%) is essential to this saddle working properly. So check out the SMP website (or google Steve Hogg fitting) for proper set-up advice.
