    168mm width saddles with cutout options?

    So Iím looking for a different saddle in a 168mm width that has a large cutout. Iíve ridden a Specialized Romin in the past but I get numb nuts riding it. Iíd like to try something with a full cutout or larger cutout. I really wish I could get a wide ISM Adamo Road saddle but it seems like they are only made at 140mm wide. Donít think that going to work for me. Wish I had a local lbs that had a loaner saddle program. You can waste a ton of money trying different saddles. Hoping to find the correct one the first time. What saddle are you running that you like?

    My bike that Iíll be replacing the saddle on.

    I'm riding a Specialized Phenom right now that I pulled off my MTB. But I normally ride a Specialized Toupe. Neither gives me numb bits.


    I've heard of the Power saddles being very comfortable. I may try one in the future.

    Wanting 168 width really limits the choices. Most road bike saddles are not made that wide. Casual bike saddle are but they don't seem to be any of those with cut outs.

    If you log on the Selle SMPs website and click on "Trekking" you'll probably find one that wide with a big cut-out though.

    Here: https://www.sellesmp.com/en/saddles/tourism.html

    And I was wrong about clicking on trekking. It's Tourism to get to a more complete list of their wider saddles.

    By they way I'm pretty sure there are on-line options for a demo program. You'd of course lose out on mailing back and forth to try a bunch but it's a little insurance anyway if I'm correct and there are such places on-line. Not that they would necessarily have anything 168 with a big cut out though.

    I actually went to my lbs and they had a super cool computer fit for bike seats. Figured out Iím a 143. Not a 168. No idea how I was off that far but I was. Going to try an Adamo Race first and see how I like it.

    Make sure you use it for a while if you are on a Demo saddle, before deciding. If you aren't riding off the nose on an Adamo saddle, you may find it chafes your inner thighs because the nose is pretty wide.
