ISM PR 2.0


$140, Jensonusa.com

The draw: A softer split nose

As with all ISM saddles, the PR 2.0 features a wide pressure-relief channel, often called a “split nose,” that extends through the end of the saddle nose. The new PR 2.0 saddle shares a similar overall shape to the first widely popular saddle from ISM, the Adamo Road, but features softer, more forgiving foam and a gently sloped nose shape, which makes it a good option for those who have struggled with the firmness of some split-nose saddles. We found the PR 2.0 comfortable when riding in the aero position or upright.
