Dash Stage 9

$465, Dashcycles.com
The draw: Ideal for men with aggressive fits

If the unique shape and extremely light weight of the Stage 9 don’t strike you, then the high price tag certainly will. Men found this saddle to be more comfortable than did women. This saddle is at home on a tri bike—it will not work well with an upright road position. The saddle is firm, it allows for a forward pelvic tilt and the rails provide a good amount of adjustability. The saddle is available in three widths, custom colors and with customized amounts of padding. Dash offers a demo program that’s worth checking out if you’re considering this pricy saddle.
