On-One’s Bignose is a value-for-money winner, and not just because of its low price; someone somewhere has clearly put some thought into it.
The name is no accident, with the front of the saddle being particularly broad, tall and well padded. This makes it a fine place to perch on steep climbs – and it’s no exaggeration to say that a comfy saddle can make the difference in cleaning crazy-steep slopes.
The rest of the time the nose is unobtrusive, leaving a classic long and narrow shape. There’s even a cutaway in the shell to relieve pressure on your undercarriage. With its chromoly rails, the Bignose is unsurprisingly not all that light, at 286g.
