    Before you spend a load of money on a bike saddle, make sure your bike is set up correctly. It doesn't matter what seat you have, it will be unconfy if you are in the wrong position.

    i have changed to a sella italia slk gel flow[:)]

    v comfy (not as light as some of the more expensive ones)

    the slc is the higher priced one and i think lighter..but i've not sat on it

    Saddles are very much a personal thing. I bought a Selle Italia t1 for IMch and had to ditch it . I then tried a Selle Italia slr xp which worked well on my road bike geometry but was not good on the tri geometry set up. I ended up with the heavier and cheaper but much comfier gel flow which I now have super glued to my new P3c. Point being try them out and be prepared to change an expensive saddle for comfort. Selle Italia do a try before you buy scheme. Well worth it
