Saddle measurement

Is there any science to saddle width measuring or is it just the total width of the saddle? I know my Specialized is a 143mm and that corresponds with the measured width. The saddle on my Scott is 135mm wide. Can I then assume it is a 135mm saddle?

Sounds like a trick question.

 

 

I thought it had more to do with the distance between your sit bones but I guess it is just a simple saddle width measurement

I find it strange that only Specialized have different widths. Maybe in Italy you don't get people with American sized sit bones.

 

On the Fizik web site you will see 3 different MTB saddles,

 

Tundra - 125mm

Gobi - 130mm

Aliante - 142mm

Specialized does cater for large buts
