Specialized Romin Expert $120
The Romin Expert is a saddle for minimalists preferring solid bone-on-saddle support rather than a soft, plush feeling. It is extremely light and does not feature much cushioning. Created with Specialized’s patented Body Geometry design, the firm upper holds the rider up by the sit bones rather than allowing him or her to sink into the saddle and pinch the perineum. Its cutout spans the rear two-thirds of the saddle. This saddle is best for triathletes who prefer to sit farther set back on the saddle instead of riding the nose.
