    Got the previous modell of the mistica, the tritone. Works nicely when im in the TT postition and still okay when im not using the aero bars. But longer rides on my roadbike without aero bars on this saddle feel really strange, not uncomfortable because i don't get any presure points, it just starts to feel weird.
    On the aero bars, they simply work. Also i got the Trition carriage kit mounted onto the rear bracket where i got 2 bottle cages, 1 Co2 cartridge and one inner tube whcih is very neat, becasue i don't need a saddlebag. Then i put my multitool in the top tube bag and other necessities like phone, keys and maybe some source of energy. Plan on using a ISM on my future Tri bike, but until now, im really happy with my Tritone

    Mark- if you like the Fifty-five, try their Tenace road saddle. I just switched and it's amazing!

    I like the Specialized Power saddle. It is very short, has a cut out in the middle, and is pretty flat. It is short enough to not be too bad in the aerobars, but it also works with an aggressive position on a road bike. It is a touch on the hard side, but they've recently released one that is supposed to have a sorter section where your bones sit on it. I find it's the best of both worlds combining a road saddle and triathlon saddle.

    I disagree with your characterization of the ISM and Cobb as "split nose". Instead, they're "cut-off nose" just like the last saddle you showed. This was extremely evident when you held up the Fizik next to the ISM and it was obvious that you pulled the Fizik way back to compare the front of both saddles. If you had done what you did for the last saddle with the ISM it would have been obvious that the ISM has its nose cut off too. And, by realizing the nose is cut off you can start to realize that you should not sit back with the ISM but rather sit as you would normally on a saddle with a nose and just expect that the ISM doesn't have the nose.

    I've tried every saddle in the video almost (excluding Prologo) without much luck. Any saddle fitting specialists you'd recommend out of London?

    This video was released just in time for me to get a bit of info before I buy a new saddle for my bike. Thanks!

    How about the Dash saddle line??
    I currently ride the Tritone and it fits rather well. I concur with Calvin Pessl just below.

    An affordable slip nose saddle is made by Starbk. It's hard to find on Amazon, but if you do, it's a only 25 bucks U.S.

    I thought GCN was the only channel with voice fry. I can't stand it when people crackle their voice. They sound so lazy and annoying. 😝💥🔫

    Why don’t you talk about the women’s saddles at all? We have different bits down there so it’d be nice if you went over women’s saddles and mentioned if these saddles also work for women or if they somehow put extra pressure on our fun zones.

    What is a good road bike saddle to be used with mini tt bars for sprint/ Olympic distance triathlons? Much like the bikes the riders use in the ITU Series?

    I would appreciate your thoughts on whether a Rak-it would help my transition times, it seems I can use my normal saddle I train with and to rack it easily – I found it at www.tri-trained.co.uk/store/p2/Rak~it.html

    Great video!

    As a 56 year old I ride around 6.000 km (3728.22 miles)on my split-nose or triathlon saddle. https://gerhardwanninger.wixsite.com/cycling/post/triathlon-saddle-or-split-nose-saddle-on-my-racing-bicycle

    Keep up your work!
