hi everyone
we are getting ready for 12 monts trip around Asia and still looking for a good touring Saddle for my girlfriend.
we have tried 2 already [the last for touring around south west england few days ago] and it doesn't look good [still] - looks like she has problems with the bladder :-(
first we though it's the cold but then we figured out it's the saddle :-(
I ecperimented with mooving it to the front or back and it improved [to the front] but she is still not happy :-(

any advise ??
... it's all in your mind ...

Hi acanay,

Try the Terry Butterfly, standard version or gel version.

My girlfriend rides 3 Butterfly gel on different bikes.

We have made good experiences with the
Brooks Team Profesional S for women.
Available in black or honey (if colour matters wink )

My wife is riding hers for two years now and is happy.

But it will need some time to get used to it.

Hello Acanay,

I have the brooks professional S (for women) and though I have used it only 400km before I used it in New Zealand for a longer tour. I am really happy with this saddle. It is still hard but it never heart laugh

I can cycle my tours without any problems...
best regards Renata
