Not long term but I did demo a bike with one for long enough to form an opinion. My daily saddle is an SMP Dynamic but I have a Selle Italia Turbo on my fixed gear. The round profile makes it feel very similar to the Turbo but if I remember right it was very flat front to back making a better saddle for shifting around. If I were looking for a new saddle I'd try it.

I just got one, my initial ride on the trainer was good. I am headed out shortly for another ride to see how it perform on regular roads.

If you wouldn't mind, I'd appreciate your thoughts about it on the road. Thanks!

Other saddles that work well for you would be good to know also.

Not bad, I liked the round profile but the edges were too sharp and too high. Also, the sharp nose catches your shorts.

I've ridden one off and on for the past couple of years. I'd describe it as a cross between a Fizik Arione and a San Marco Rolls.
