Scoop Pro Team Saddle
The Scoop Pro Team Saddle from Fabric looks like, well, a saddle. Designed to be lightweight, durable, and comfortable, Fabric offers the Scoop in four varieties: Elite, Race, Pro, and Ultimate. This Scoop Pro Team uses carbon fiber rails and a nylon base to find a fine balance of ride quality, weight, and price. The "Team" moniker refers to the large Fabric graphic on the top of its durable Microfiber cover.
Fabric claims its Scoop Saddle is "designed for everyone," and indeed it will work well on road, gravel, mountain, and cyclocross bikes. The Scoop also gives you plenty of options for fit and feel. You can choose between two different base materials for the Scoop saddle, nylon or carbon fiber, with this Scoop Pro coming with a flexible nylon base that's lightweight and offers a bit more give, so it's a touch more comfortable when the terrain isn't pristine tarmac. The Scoop also offers three different rail materials (carbon, titanium, and cro-mo options) with this Pro model coming with Fabric’s 9mm oval carbon fiber rails helping drop grams and are the stiffest in the lineup.
Scoop saddles also come in three different shapes, which vary in curvature from tip to tail. The three shapes are Flat, Shallow, and Radius. Which saddle you choose depends on if you prefer a more rounded or flatter shape as well as if your riding position is aggressive, neutral, or more upright. All of Fabric’s Scoop saddles feature a softer foam, thanks to its more flexible base, for extra cushioning and this Team version features a waterproof microfiber cover in the color black.

To be honest with you, I'm not sure that this saddle will end up being the right shape for me, but you can't fault Fabric when it comes to quality! The Scoop is well-built and light for the price.
