Most of my outdoor rides are over 2 hours long-
On my mountain bike, I have a wtb deva thin line saddle (not made anymore ). I have a terry flx (non gel) saddle on my cross / gravel bike. Both have short “noses” and not a lot of padding (terry has more but not a whole bunch). I like less padding as there is less rubbing and irritation especially as the more padded saddles compress and wear over time. You sit much more upright on a mtb, so I’m not sure I would use a mtb saddle on road bike. I also like short nose saddles for off road and gravel as I am on and off my seat a lot for climbing and jumping over rocks, roots, logs and cross obstacles.
My New Trek Domane SL7 came with the Bontrager Ajna. Not a lot of padding, has cut out and short nose. Just got it, so I’m giving it a chance.
On my trainer bike, I am always switching out saddles- presently have a selle anatomica X2 on it. The selle anatomica is very comfortable for long endurance rides- you can change tension on saddle. Not the lightest, but its on my trainer. I’m a total gear head, so I am always changing things around.
I used to use selle italia lady gel flow saddles with no issues. I have worn them down pretty badly. I keep them for emergency use. I break a saddle once a year or so on my mtb.
Not all my saddles are set up for the same height and reach, based on the type of riding I do. I do set them all from my road bike fitting (sit bones to reach on handle bars) and tweak from there. My road saddle is almost a neutral setting while my cross and mtb set with nose tipped slightly down. (it is a trick I learned in mtb. It helps when climbing steep hills you are angled to keep some weight on the back tire when you are leaned over the handlebars (known in women’s mtbiking as “keep your boobs over the bars”). It helps keep back tire down and leaning over front handlebars keeps front tire from lifting. Works on gravel hills too.
Don’t tip too far down or you will put too much pressure on your arms and you will constantly be pushing yourself back on your seat.
