StarStarStarStarStar Can't beat these for comfort.

Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: high


This is my 2nd Imperial. Can't beat these for comfort - unlike the standard B17's they tend to be a bit more comfortable from the start (at least to me). Doesn't take too much breaking in to make them perfect.


Bit rough on the rear to start with, but not as bad as the standard B17.

Ownership: several months

No numbness


Be careful when you attach your tool bag, there are sharp edges on the metal components on the underside of the saddle.

Other Thoughts

I am using this on a drop bar road bike. (2005 Trek Pilot 5.0). This saddle works well for recreational riding and commuting.

Rail Material

Clamp Style



Men's saddles tend to have a narrower seat and longer nose than corresponding women's versions.

We categorize usage into three styles - BMX, racing and recreation. Racing saddles tend to be narrower and be more firm than recreation saddles. Recreation saddles are usually a better fit if you plan to ride upright and they may include features like springs.

Saddle color is usually the predominant color of the saddle. But, for predominantly black or white saddles it is usually the color of accents or highlights.
