Scenic vistas await.
When you're riding a century through beautiful vineyards and scenic valleys, the last thing you want to worry about is an uncomfortable saddle. The ISM PR 2.0 Saddle lets you focus on the scenery with a split cutout design that reduces pressure on sensitive nerves and tissues while fighting off uncomfortable numbness.
At first glance, this saddle looks a bit odd with its blunt nose and split legs at the front, but rest assured that it's designed with your comfort in mind. ISM categorizes the PR 2.0 as a Performance Recreation saddle, meaning it'll be right at home in a local race or chauffeuring you to the next stop on that wine country century. It features a bit more padding than ISM's race models to give day-long comfort in the saddle for whatever ride the day brings.
For those of you looking to test the waters in a local triathlon, the ISM PR 2.0 Saddle has some added features to lower the bar of entry. The extra padding will counter the thinner chamois found in most triathlon-specific shorts to keep you comfy during the bike leg, and a rear transition hook makes it easier to get your bike situated on the transition area rack whether you're setting it up before a race or coming in to T2.

Comfortable seat for older riders
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought this seat as a birthday gift for my dad. He reported back with the following information: "I am a 71 y.o. 6 foot, 160 lb. healthy male who switched to the ISM PR 2.0 a few weeks ago. I ride a road bike around 500 miles/month and have done two “Centuries” this year. I was having some issues with the longer nosed regular road bike seat. Since switching I am much more comfortable on the seat, especially on longer rides. The company’s website suggests trying shorter rides to get good positioning but I didn’t find that necessary but some may need to.
It is very comfortable in the more upright position. It’s OK “riding the drops” but most of my riding is on the hoods where I notice the biggest advantage."
Rad for the TT bike
I rode with this saddle on my Specialized Shiv tri bike for the 2015-2016 race season and I really loved it. At first was skeptical about the shape of the saddle thinking it wasn't really designed for women but I was happy to be proven wrong. This saddle put me in a great aero position when I was down in the aero bars on my TT bike but I will say the saddle was not very comfortable when I was sitting up in the seat for climbing or group riding. That being said, the saddle is made specifically for riding in a TT position so I have no major qualms there. I have since sold my tri bike and the saddle but the person I sold the saddle to also says that he loves it so I think that this is a good fit for both men and women looking for a good aero position on their tt bike. I especially like the pronged front of the saddle which allows for pressure alleviation and good air flow to the lady parts and makes riding 70+ miles in the aero bars feel good. Or at least as good as you can feel during a long ride like that:)
