Very tiny but comfortable – Genuine AEST Hollow Out Saddle - Black + White Reviews

posted by failbooru on 08/30/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The materials are good, the stitching is neat and the pattern is also okay with me. The design is for active pedaling: the sides are bent way down to avoid unnecessary contact with inner hips.
Cons:
It looks way smaller than the normal saddle after installed on the bike - the coloring also makes it lighter and thinner. And it is actually pretty thin, I'm not sure how long it will last. So far it is okay with my 65 kg. But if you are 80+ kg this may be too thin and narrow for you.
Other:
On my first ride it was not too comfortable. But it looks like I've just get used to my previous stock saddle which was way wider. After a couple of rides it does not give me any discomfort, and after a week I do think it is actually very good.
Bottomline:
You may need to get used to it at first. But within a week you'd think this saddle is better than your stock one.
