Nothing equals the comfort of a well-made leather saddle and the Selle Anatomica X Series TruLeather Saddle is truly the head of the class when it comes to craftsmanship, quality, aesthetics, and longevity. Riding isn't always about shaving grams down to the absolute minimum and this saddle is indeed the perfect choice for those concerned with an exquisite ride quality that can truly be enhanced and extended by the iterative process involved with owning and caring for a leather product. Its TruLeather full grain leather top requires a little more break-in time than its Watershed leather peer, but that initial investment in time will be paid back in spades for miles and miles to come.

Comments about Selle Anatomica Titanico X TruLeather Saddle:
I have had this for 3 weeks. It gets very comfortable, very quickly. 60 year old, avid touring, middle distance rider (18-30 mile rides). I have a Brooks B17 and tried at least three other saddles over the past year; this Selle Anatomica is the best of them all. I will probably purchase at least one or two more for the other bikes I have. I weigh about 195 lb. and the rails did bend slightly after a couple rides. This hasn't affected the comfort, though. After riding over the past 30 years, I find that saddle comfort is more of an issue now than ever before (hence the multiple saddle purchases). The comfort of this one is deserving of the positive reviews by others.
