“Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.” This can be said of the Supacaz Ti Ignite, the color schemes on these saddles are almost as dazzling as the technical specs.

Officially a short saddle, the Ti Ignite is not as short in the nose as some models and sticks pretty much to the traditional saddle proportions.It features a center channel and a large cutout portion, Supacaz market this as a unisex model and is available in two widths at 5.5” and 6.1”.

The foam padding (Suprcaz call it Kush) is covered by a PU fabric (again to Supacaz design) which does provide good support and a comfortable ride. Below are hollow titanium rails delivering both strength and a degree of flex.

The seat covering is just as good in wet as in dry conditions and is neither slippery or squeaky.

The colors are, shall we say “vibrant” but this shouldn’t put you off trying the Supacaz 

Ti Ignite it is a very good saddle indeed.

What we like

  • Comfortable over long distances
  • Great build quality
  • Maintains comfort in all conditions

What we don’t like

  • A bit heavy
  • Color schemes are garish

Sit-up and tourers

We have looked at Brooks England saddles previously in our review of Most Comfortable Bike Seats for Women, the comments there are just as appropriate here. Brooks England have been hand making saddles since 1866 and their sturdy steel sprung, vegetable tanned leather seats are as iconic as they are comfortable.

As with the ladies saddles, the Brook England B67 will take a little time to get used to you!

The saddle seat is a natural product and in time will adjust to suit your butt. Thankfully not the other way round.

What we like

  • Iconic design
  • Handmade
  • Best quality materials throughout
  • Sturdy
  • Brooks England plate on the back

What we don’t like

  • Takes time to get used to. (Well worth the effort)

ISM Urbaine (Steel Rails)

Buy from Wiggle.com

Another “unisex” saddle this time from ISM.
A far more chunky affair than the Brook England with a quite obvious heavily padded seat.
Sitting above the stainless steel rails is a foam padded nose-less seat.
The theory is that this nose=less design removes pressure from soft tissue areas and therefore delivers a more comfortable ride.

What we like 

  • Nose-less design is very comfortable
  • Suitable for tourers, hybrids and spin cycles
  • Good design center cut-out for ventilation

What we don’t like

  • Some find seat a little firm

Giddy Up! Bike Seat

Best Budget Seat
Giddy Up! Bike Seat
$39.95
  • Waterproof seat
  • LED light
  • Toolkit provided
  • Mass appeal

This amazingly popular memory foam filled bike seat is a hit with men,women young and old alike. The foam is covered by a faux leather waterproof material. Below are two rubber ball shock absorbers that take the jolt of almost any surface.

The Giddy Up! also has a built-in LED light array which illuminates in the dark, maybe all seats should have this?

Suitable for most bikes including hybrids and spins, the Giddy UP1 ships with a protective cover and fitting kit.

What we like

  • Waterproof seat
  • LED light
  • Toolkit provided
  • Mass appeal

What we don’t like

  • A little firm for some
  • Batteries don’t last very long

This is not the first time InspiredCyclist.com has come across this guy.

We have already mentioned it in our article Most Comfortable Bike Seat For Women

In that post we told our readers that it has been hailed as the most comfortable bike seat in the world. If sales figures are anything to go by, they could be right. This incredibly low priced seat is popular with men and women alike.

The gentle transition from nose to seat seems to be a key factor in making this foam filled seat a winner.

What we like

  • Very low price
  • Ergonomic design
  • Transitional nose suits most rider shapes
  • Hardwearing

What we don’t like 

  • Color schemes are a bit garish
  • May not suit “heads down riders.”

Things to consider when buying a men’s road bike saddle

Riding position and type of riding

Bike saddles are very often designed gender specifically and this should be considered when purchasing.

Similarly the type of riding that you will be doing is very important, if you are looking for a “nice” seat if you cycle down to the shops, then you don’t really need the sleek, lightweight seats you normally find on a racing bike. 

Also your riding position is a crucial factor, don’t dismiss the idea of seeing your local cycle fitting specialist. These specialists have the training, equipment and experience to analyse your physique and advise you which way to go.

Central groove or cutout

There seems to be a trend to having a cutout in the saddle, particularly for endurance and road models. The principle of this cutout is to relieve pressure on the male soft tissue region and therefore making the ride far more comfortable.

Although in the case of the oversized where there is no groove, these seats are more suited to shorter distance riding rather than endurance.

Padding doesn’t mean comfort

We have mentioned this in previous paragraphs but it is just as well to mention it again.

Although padding, whether foam or gel can be fantastic but overly padded seats can cause problems especially in endurance riding. Some of the padding, and the oversize of the saddle can cause chafing and other issues.

The phrase “horses for courses” works pretty well in this situation!
