Looks like a way for the manufacturer to sell two saddles for (their) cost of one. They could sell the cutout area removed from the one in the pic as a really tiny saddle.

An ad for that saddle briefly popped up in another internet forum I was browsing this morning, and I was struck by their tag line: "The last saddle you'll ever buy, GUARANTEED."

For a brief moment I wondered how they could be so confident about their product. Then it dawned on me:

This saddle will kill you.

Joking aside, someone I ride with has gone through a bunch of saddles (Spec Toupe, Fizik, SMP...) and is currently trying one of these and likes it. They have a very generous trial period but he is leaning towards keeping it. Yeah, it looks like a torture device to me....

Interesting

Funny looking for sure but some really favorable reviews and several from cyclists with serious mileage. That little flap in the middle looks very sketchy?

Uh-oh. They advocate KOPS. We all "know" that isn't "right."

"To achieve the most comfortable riding position and powerful pedal stroke, your kneecap should be directly above your pedal crank when the crank is in its level (most forward) position.

With your bike securely in its stand, carefully climb on.

With your pedals level with each other, look down over your front knee. It should be directly above the crank of your pedal (which is approximately in line with the ball of your foot).

If you have a plumb bob, have someone hold the string to your kneecap. The bob should hang directly over the pedal crank.

• If your knee is ahead of the pedal, then loosen the seat mount and slide the seat and rails backward.

• If your knee is behind the pedal, then slide the seat slightly forward."

I'd hate to see the saddle sore that inspired that seat.

I know everything about this saddle is a massive joke. And I agree. There are some funny things to say about this thing. But for me, someone who can't ride anymore, I am looking for anything where I can. I would absolutely try this if it allowed me to ride.

But yeah, this thing looks stupid.
