2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Saddles

Cobb Max $180
The Max is one of the softer saddles, featuring a generous perineal relief cutout. The feeling of riding the Max is similar to the Adamo but with a narrower and softer nose. The cutout zone is also slightly narrower, ideal for more compact physiques. It lets the pelvis roll forward to ease stress on the lower back without creating excessive perineal pressure. The saddle rails are relatively long and allow for a wide range of position adjustment. Heavier riders will wind up compressing the nose of the saddle quite a bit and may find it less comfortable as a result. Cobbcycling.com
