The Draw: Short-Course Master
The Pro Aerofuel is a lightweight, minimalistic saddle with a flat and narrow nose section and a generous pressure relief groove. This saddle has a great overall shape and is best for the short-course athlete who struggles with the width of other saddles. The nose has a thin rubber tread, which does a good job stabilizing the rider, but the padding on this saddle is relatively thin, which may be uncomfortable on long rides. Also, be warned: The saddle rails are relatively short, limiting adjustability to some degree.
