Gobi Xm vs Phenom vs Silverado


Recommended Posts

As you can see I have a saddle delema here, which one to choose ? Or is there another saddle I should be looking at?

Intended use is XC riding with the average ride distance being 50km but occasional longer ride of 100km plus.

Cant offer decent advice, but I can say that I have the Phenom, and I'm very happy with it. Done many marathons and Sabie Experience, no problems.

saddles are like lube. tyres and religion, everyone on the hub has there own idea of what works. 


Me, I like a minimalist saddle like the selle italia slr xc gel, ive done 5 hours on in with cape storm nitro bibs and no issues.  But if you dont ride allot your but will never get used to such a thin saddle, so maybe something thicker. 


People swear by the gobi, got one with the bike, sold it a few days later, hated the shape.
