If you’re seeking something suited to more technical riding for less than £25, look no further than the Ritchey Comp.
It lacks the sofa appeal of a plusher saddle but its ﬁrm, ﬂat platform gives you a more powerful pedalling base together with improved manoeuvrability, making it easier to skip forwards or hop off the back.
It delivers better control than a softer saddle and a good feel for your bike. If it wasn’t for the weight we’d say it rides like a race saddle.
What it lacks is the comfort combined with a performance edge that you get from higher-priced models, but if you have race whippet aspirations and you’re on a budget, give this a try
