The Speed and Comfort (formerly Cobb) Fifty-Five saddle remains an extremely popular triathlon saddle for men and women alike. The saddle’s nose is designed to provide comfort in a low aero position, while the wide and flat rear section makes this a great women’s saddle and provides good sit bone support when in an upright or road position. Some will find the dense padding a bit on the firm side, but this is often something most riders acclimate to after a few rides. The Fifty-Five features a removable transition rack hook, that when removed allows the installation of a rear-mount hydration system to keep race-day essentials firmly in place.
