We see this saddle on more touring and distance riders’ seatposts than any other.
It’s wider and more padded than dedicated race models, but still feels sporty and allows free pedalling movement. It suits a slightly more upright riding position and the padding’s supportive enough to keep you happy on long rides.
There’s a long, wide centre cut-out, the length is quite stubby and the nose doesn’t seem to cause any rubbing. This year’s version sees an update to the logos and styling, with bonus reflective marks and five colour options.
An old Lady Gelflow of ours has become faded and worn from two tours in the Himalayas, but the stitching and shape are still holding up really well. The upper is made of leather, while the rails are manganese.
