Ritchey Marathon Comp saddle review£24.46

Performance perch on a budget

BikeRadar score3.5/5

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
