2013 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Saddles

Bontrager Hilo RXL

$180, Bontrager.com
The draw: Versatile comfort

Bontrager has created a special saddle with the Hilo RXL. Both male and female riders found it comfortable while riding on the nose and when sitting upright. No saddle works perfectly for everyone, but you can expect to see more of these in the transition area. The saddle rails are of average length for decent adjustability, and there is a small transition rack hook at the rear of the saddle. This saddle has a big brother named the Hilo RXL Speed Dial, featuring an adjustable-width nose that tailors the saddle’s tip.
