Selle Italia Super Flow Endurance Novus saddle
I've ridden a Selle Italia C2 Gel Flow saddle for eight years but it's dipped in the middle and causing problems down below not helped by getting a saddle sore. It's been a great saddle but needed replacing so i bought the Selle Italia Super Flow Endurance Novus saddle (S3). The two saddles have similar dim's and I tried each one on a small table and the new one puts a lot of pressure on my sit bones (at about 90-100 MM centres) compared to the C2 which seems to have softer cushioning. The C2 has a more pronounced concave curve leading to the nose of the saddle. The "feel" difference is quite a lot with the SuperFlow feeling more rigid. My question is: should i try out the new saddle on the bike and kill off any chance of returning it or get a new C2. It should be a no-brainer but i am in my 60s and no doubt my body shape is changing as is (probably) my ability to complete longer rides comfortably. hence going for a more expensive saddle.
