Nashbar FR1 Saddle
Updated for 2015 with a new, exquisitely smooth synthetic leather cover, the Nashbar FR1 saddle remains as ever a remarkable value.

  • Supportive foam padding provides exceptional comfort

  • Synthetic leather cover is durable and waterproof

      Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

      The only reason I'm giving this a 3 star is because of the comfort. Absolutely horrible for me. I've sat on a lot of different saddles and this was by far the worst. It was downright painful on the two bones that rest on the saddle. Now does that mean it's a bad saddle? Absolutely not. The quality was good and the seat was light. Looked like it was well made it just was not the right one for me. Unfortunately it was a $13 error on my part as I was responsible for all the shipping charges. I've learned not to buy a saddle online unless I know exactly what I want which I didn't. I based my purchase on the other reviews. Shipping was fast and the credit I received came very quickly. I will order from Nasbar again.

      This seat feels like my more expensive seats. I don't know how long it will last but at the price it wont matter much.

        Had been struggling with finding a comfortable saddle for my wife. She tried mine one day and liked it so much that she asked for one like it. I have run mine for over a year and it is holding up well. Some scratches from a crash, but otherwise no evidence that it has as many miles as it does.

            Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

            I recently bought a new high quality mountain bike but because my bottom has been on all kinds of saddles for the last 48 years I prefer some degree of comfort that wasn't to my liking with the original seat. I first bought the Nashbar FR-1 saddle a few years ago. This one is my 3rd. After weighing it I discovered that it's fairly light and because of the center cut out it agrees with my old bottom. I wouldn't use it on a road racing bike. But I have the FR-1 on my older mountain bike and my gravel bike.

              I chose this saddle based on the outstanding reviews. I was really surprised that such a light saddle was so comfortable. Be advised, this is a narrow saddle which happens to be what fits me perfectly.

                The search for the most comfortable saddles mantra
                If you been looking for a comfortable saddle, add this one to your list too try, if you ever been saddle fitted.
                Very comfortable saddle. So a 134 width saddle is for my sit bones.
                For some with bigger sit bones, it wouldn't be as comfortable. Ide say try the Fizik line of saddles.
                The rear gel density the pr1 has and shape for the rear gel is spot on with my sit bones the mid cutout is better suited for a Gran - Fondo endurance trip. I slide around on this saddle and the nose is just as comfortable as the rear gel. great for a commuter of even racing and MTB use.
                I use this saddle every day of the week.
                I hope you have it in white again to remedy the 100+ degree summer scorching heat.

                  I bought this for my 1988 Panasonic, which incidentally, has had numerous upgrades to make it a more modern machine. I occasionally commute 17 miles round trip to work, as well as weekend rides are in the 25-30 mile range. It didn't take long to get dialed in, there is a solid 5" fore-aft adjustment built into the saddle. The first ride (25 miles) was quite good, especially considering a new saddle. After a number of rides, including 10 miles without my bike shorts, no complaints.

                    Comments about Nashbar FR1 Saddle:

                    In the past, I always tried to buy Selle Italia Flights, or similar saddles, but that gets expensive. I bought my first FR1 2 years ago for a lightweight mtb because it was on sale for $19 and had good reviews. I had low expectations. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised when it proved to be comfortable, durable, and light weight. So I've now bought a second for a nice TI road bike I'm building. Hey, it saves money for better hubs, with no loss of comfort or weight penalty. Who's to complain?
