Superb In Every Aspect
This saddle is brilliant in every way! Here's some background to my review...I've spent a long time trying to find the right saddle. I spent 4 years commuting 40 miles a day and have tried numerous brands and models with most resulting in back to back days being very uncomfortable. Until now I've not managed to find the right balance between a saddle with a cutaway section (my preference), and comfort on the rest of the saddle, whilst keeping it low weight and usable every day. The Skycarb VT ticks all of the boxes. It is nice and light due to the carbon construction, and stiff/supple in the right places. The material appears to be soft and durable, whilst stable enough so I don't slip around. The cutaway is perfect and it's the first saddle I've used where Iv'e not had any hint of soreness the day after a long ride. Under the cover is a memory foam padding which is as good as it sounds! It's an all round winner in my opinion and although it's pretty expensive, I don't think you can put a price on being comfortable in the saddle, so I think it's worth it.

Stunning saddle, super light super comfortable
I've ridden this saddle for two summers now and I'm really pleased you can now buy it at Wiggle!
It is up with the lightest of saddles, but where you usually end up with a very firm unpadded ride for such a low weight the SkyCarb stands out as different.
This is very light and very comfortable. I now have on all my bikes!
Yes it's expensive but for long days in the saddle, day after day,this really makes a difference.
It's well made and looks good to boot!
