Saddle sore and saddle choices
I'm trying to bring my wife to the sport and the major issue that she's facing right now is saddle sores, to the point where she's giving up riding.
So I was just "one more guy" believing that her sores were due to lack of adaptation to her saddle, and only recently I've decided to invest the right time searching for its causes.
I've been learning a lot, and for the first time I've taken some time to read some of the posts written by many of you on this forum about the subject, under the "saddle sores" post.
Sorry for my frontally, but to stay in tune with all who cares to share their experience (and I thank in advance to all who's willing to), my wife is an "outie", at least from Cobb saddle makers perspective, and only recently I've realised that my wife's pain is in her female parts, not her bum
We clearly don't have the opportunity to try saddles over here, so it can be a really expensive journey to buy and sell second hand a bunch of saddles that just don't work.
A couple of days ago I had the chance to pick an ISM road saddle borrowed from a female rider, friend of a friend. The issue was that my wife only had the chance to ride it for 20 or so minutes, in our trainer.
She told me that she felt a real difference, for the better, comparing the ISM to her saddle, and with that in mind, I'm here to ask all female riders that are willing to share their experiences, what do you think of ISM saddles in a road bike, and what other options did you consider if you have ever suffered from the same issue?
