I am in the market for a new saddle. Current saddle is a stock 2007 Bontrager Race that has served me well but it is getting tired.
My mountain bike has a Bontrager Evoke and I hate it.
The main difference is that the Race has a bit of a swoop or wave shape and the Evoke is flat.
I was thinking a swooposh saddle like the Fabric Scoop Radius. I am a bigger rider 230ish lbs and I was concerned that the saddle would be too flexy.

Bontrager saddles are mostly flat or pricey.
The Specialized Romin is a possibility.

According to Trek's butt-o-meter I am between a guy's medium and wide.
Would the Fabric be too flexy?
Thanks in advance

My wife and I like the Sella Anatomica X Series. Have 4 of them: tandem and our single bikes. 100 mile rides no problem. Pricey though.

If you like a saddle with a "swoop" to it, take a look at the Specialized Romin and Romin EVO. Note: they are thin on the padding. I didn't like my EVO at first, but love it now.

The amount of flex is more about the shell and padding than the cover. I used the Romin for a while ( EVO Comp Gel ) and I would say it's a very nice saddle, firm with a little swoop.

Srode, why did you move away from the Romin?
