Selle SMP TRK Man Saddle
If you spend a lot of time seated in the saddle, then you need a saddle that can support you comfortably without causing pain, discomfort, or the dreaded numbness. The Selle SMP TRK is a men's saddle that's designed for those who spend a lot of time on the trainer or trekking. The distinctive Selle SMP design gives the saddle a curved distinctive curve, drop nose and air channel to support your sit bones, keep blood flowing and support your body in an anatomically correct way. This allows your body weight to be distributed evenly to alleviate pressure on the pernieal region.

    Comments about Selle SMP TRK Man Saddle:

    Rating a bike saddle (seat) is very much a personal matter. Ask 20 people about the same saddle and you will likely get at least 10 honest but very different ratings. The traditional bike seats were about as flat as a board and many still are today. For years I was reluctant to try any of the newer shapes that were coming on the market, mainly because they looked funny. At 70 I'm not as concerned about appearances as I am function and comfort. My old traditional (board) seat was causing pressure points resulting in numbness and actual raw spots on rides of more than 15 to 20 miles. I ordered three new saddles: The Selle SMP TRK Man Saddle, Selle SMP Extra Saddle and the Selle Italia Max Flite Gel Flow Saddle. After a week of trial for each one, the Selle SMP Man Saddle works best for me. The Selle SMP Extra was second and the Selle Italian Max Flite was a distant third. The SMP TRK looks funny but the U shape fits my butt much better than the traditional flat as a board designs and the real proof is in the function and comfort it provides during rides of 50 + miles. The center cut-out all but eliminates pressure in the genital region and the resultant numbness.If you're having pressure point and hot spot problems with your current seat and don't mind people making fun of the unorthodox shape of the SMP TRK, give it a try. I don't care if people laugh at my saddle as long as I'm not suffering from numbness, sore spots and can urinate without any problem after a 30+ mile ride. As a closing note let me simply say, the greatest saddle in the world will give you problems if it isn't adjusted properly for your build, riding duration and style.

    Replacement Seat

    Pros

      Comments about Selle SMP TRK Man Saddle:

      Bought this as a replacement seat for my road bike. I was looking for comfort on longer day and week long rides. Seat has more of a sway or saddle curvature in the middle than what I'm accustomed to. I'm still experimenting on fine tuning the adjustment angle, but saddle is comfortable.

      The narrow front stem has a gradual transition to the wider part of the seat. This makes it feel a little wide compared to my last seat, even though length and width dimensions are the same.

      As an aside, my wife says the sloping front of the stem a little too closely resembles a phallic symbol. But, it does serve its intended purpose to make it a little easier to mount and dismount.

        I was needing something because long rides where reeking havoc on my man parts and tailbone. This seat is awesome, it fits my physiological features perfect and I no longer experience "numb nutts" and over sensitive tingling. I highly recommend for anyone who is having those issues!

            I volunteer with the Boise Police Department and ride every Saturday for a 5 hour shift. I wanted a seat that was comfortable and eliminated "male" numbness. This seat has been great. I have used it for a month now and I am very pleased with the product. Great investment if you are a avid rider.

            Comments about Selle SMP TRK Man Saddle:

            This design is at the top of the list for fitting human anatomy and ergonomics. Sadly, though, it is not in the least bit durable for regular daily use such as commuting. If it is used often, it cracks severely in no time. Such a shame, as it would otherwise be the ideal saddle.

              Comments about Selle SMP TRK Man Saddle:

              This is my fourth seat and the best so far. Unfortunately, I'm still looking for a seat that is really comfortable for more than three hour rides.

              I'm still looking. I figure I've got another 25 to 30 years to fine one I really like.

                  Comments about Selle SMP TRK Man Saddle:

                  I'm 73 years old and I ride 6000 miles a year. The softer parts of my anatomy have grown more sensitive as I age and the stiff, light weight saddles that come with the higher end bikes don't accommodate the older body. The slit in the Selle SMP TRK Mans Saddle is wide enough and long enough to mid agate pressure; the sit bones are on materials that are soft enough to allow for long rides yet stiff enough for peddling support; and the down curve of the saddle's nose allows easy egress and mount of the bike. I would recommend this saddle to anyone who loves long rides w/o the worry of saddle discomfort.

                    Comments about Selle SMP TRK Man Saddle:

                    I build custom bikes and this is the most popular seat of the many I trial on people. The design is very unique and everyone notices how different it is from anything else. Many women prefer the men's version too over the ladies version as the ladies is too wide for some. It is critical to get the angle right to optimize the "cradle" effect you need to balance the pressures on you so play with that before you give up. Myself, I only use this saddle for road and mountain biking and works great for both. Like any saddle, it isn't right for everyone but so many people that have tried this saddle are in ecstasy the minute they try it and then never a problem on long rides.
