#1 for women ~

Nearly as many women ride bikes as men. But for generations, most bicycle designers have been men. The result, unfortunately, is a bunch of fine saddles for men that are torture devices for women. To address this issue, Cycles BiKyle polled our most active female riders to find the most universally pleasing saddle for women road riders. In our interviews, Selle Italia's LDY Gel saddle came out on top more than all other saddles combined! The LDY Gel is moderately soft so it provides extra cushion. Yet, it provides uniform support because it's not squishy. About 60% of our respondents prefer the "Flow" design with hole in the middle. And 40% prefer the traditional "non-hole" design. The Flow design appears to be the safest bet, but most women can't go wrong with either model. Both versions are available in your choice of white or black .... $179.99    Add to CART

 

 

#2 for women ~

For casual road riders (less than apx 20 miles per week), the Planet ARS-W gel saddle with cutout has been especially well received. It distributes more pressure to soft tissue instead of the actual sit bones, so It's too soft for mileage hounds. But it's very comfortable from the first ride. Hence, the bike won't sit in the garage. And it's inexpensive so a move to the Selle Italia LDY saddle is easier to absorb once the mileage moves up.
