I can confirm the above statement as I just recently tested the new Ploh. While I'm a fan of the Berk Lupina, I was very excited to ride the Ploh as it is described to fit more like the Power saddle, which is what I rode the last 8 years. However, after a couple rides, I found the Ploh to be a bit too flat for my personal taste, but that's not to say it was uncomfortable. I just prefer the Lupina because of its shape which works for me. If I could bend Berks ear to make a short nose Lupina, I'd be in heaven!!!

I have always found saddles with more contour to work better for me. The Ploh was just a bit more flat than I was anticipating. I think those who get along with a Pro stealth saddle will also find this to work well.

Fantastic photos Nick, as always, and glad to hear you are getting along with the Lupina.

While we were getting some rain here from Ian, I took a couple of photos to compare the 132 Lupina vs the 130 Lipa, which is my size. 150 Lupina vs Ploh the same.

As everyone can see, the Lipa is considerably flatter, and shorter. Zero setback post needed. Same cutout as usual.
