Own-brand saddles are a hit and miss affair, but the Madison Sport is a real ﬁnd for £30.
Aimed at the marathon and all-day epic ride brigade, the saddle is designed to provide a ﬁrm but well cushioned ride. It does this with a dash of extra padding to the nose.
Between the hull and the rails is a ﬂexible damping support, and the rails are a blend of chromoly, titanium and nickel alloys for the optimum blend of all-round light weight and low cost.
It’s not quite up with the Gobi XM, but then at this price you’re able to enjoy the feeling of a few extra £10 notes in your pocket while you ride.
