    Saddle selection

    What is a Specialized Saddle is not working for my lady? She has wide sit bones (~150mm).

    When she rolls forward towards the drops there is a lot of irritation.
    Does anyone experience this? Anyone have a better saddle pick?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Have her tilt the saddle down a smidge. Mine is tilted down ~5 degrees.

    I would suggest move the saddle forward. When she tilts forward I think she is rolling forward off of the platforms built in for her sitbones.

    Or, she is sliding forward - for this move it forward and raise the nose a little bit.

    Problem with tilting the saddle forward is that she might slide forward due to gravity, off of the sitbone platforms.
