Titec Hellcat Expert review£29.95

Good all-rounder that goes the distance

BikeRadar score4/5

Titec is better known in the Mtb world, though the shape and smooth surface of the Hellcat saddle work just as well on-road.

It's medium-wide at the rear with aggressively turned-down sides. The padding feels relatively soft and there's a cut-away in the shell under the nose for pressure relief.

There's also a more forgiving plastic section under the back part of the saddle rather than a fully rigid shell. Because it offers more padding and width than some of the racier saddles, it's great for a middle-leaning position and long days out on the bike. At the rear, the sides might cause interference with your pedal stroke but the nose is a good length and width. Synthetic leather cover and cro-mo rails help to keep the price down.
