The Toupe is the top end race saddle from Specialized and is available in two different widths, 130 and 143mm. Basically you get measured up for size by sitting on a gel pad, the gap imprinted by the sitbones corresponds to your saddle size.

Our review

Slim and racy but extremely comfortable and supportive. Should appeal to a broad range of riders.

Basically you get measured up for size by sitting on a gel pad, the gap imprinted by the sitbones corresponds to your saddle size. It appears to work because the Toupe is one very comfortable saddle for such a minimalist design. The carbon reinforced shell has just the right amount of give whilst being very supportive and is complimented by the springiness from the Ti rails. The back is wider than similar race styled saddles and offers a lot of comfort when you need to sit back and relax. Move forward onto the cut away nose and there’s a similar level of comfort and reprieve thanks to the pressure relieving BG groove. Fast riders often struggle with the fit of the leisure saddles from Specialized but the Toupe is completely different and comes highly recommended. Available in black and white.
