The Kore ATB saddle is what your PE teacher would describe as a good all-rounder. The length plus slightly raised rear combine to provide pedal power and ease of movement, the central groove works to protect your delicate areas from saddle pressure, while the scuff patches on the seat edges protect the saddle from your bad handling.
It’s got all the right component parts but just doesn’t ride quite as well as it could, which is not to say it’s bad – far from it.
Our main beef is with the cover, which is very slippery and makes it hard to maintain your riding position. The shock absorption would be better with titanium rails, but then it would be a lot more expensive.
