    Devox Carbon Road Saddle for $70 worth it?

    Hi folks,

    It's an amazing price for a saddle that was $280... Anyone have experience with one of these?

    I think you have to be careful with the carbon fiber rails, and I dont think they are exactly round more oval shaped so they might have a problem fitting your bike.

    Looks to be a good deal. When I google this, people say the rails are ovalized, so this can be an issue fitting into a standard 7mm round seatpost rail clamp?

    Humm... is this "ovalized" rails a defect or a characteristic?

    I decided to risk it and ordered one. Will see if the "too good to be true" applies here. lol

    Cheers

    resembles a Fi'zi:k Aliante Carbon. I had the regular version of said saddle and it's nice...just not to my particular liking compared to a flat saddle.

    Ovalized rails aren't a defect. Many carbon-railed saddles are shaped as so for what I assume is a means of strengthening. I have Trigon VCS03 full carbon saddle, and it's perhaps of a small selection of saddles that have regular-sized carbon-rails. I'm 140lb, so I can't really speak on whether the lack of ovalized rails is a bad thing in reality.
