With all the advances in technology and manufacturing techniques, we are much more able these days to combine both comfort and performance in the same item. This certainly holds true when choosing from a range of mountain bike saddles. In days gone by, high quality cycling performance generally suggested the saddle would not have been most friendly on the body and conversely a big 'pudding' of a saddle would have diminished speed across the ground. Let's look at some.
One of the most popular of MTB saddles is the comfort or leisure saddle. Generally they are always lightweight yet durable and high quality yet relatively inexpensive. Normally they are well made and boast a tougher edge fabric and are particularly suited for commuting, touring or general use.
As comfortable bike saddles go, the inclined seat saddle is surprisingly accommodating. This seat is also suitable for road use but really comes into its own for the avid mountain biker. It is ergonomically designed for optimum leg movement and comfortably supports a forward leaning riding position. Therefore it has a double density base for increased comfort and flexibility and more than anything, it won't let you down.
Go the whole hog with one of many BMX style MTB saddles if you are into dirt ramps, bumps and bruises and skate parks. These saddles are always lightweight yet comfortable and, as you would expect look really good. Whatever your ability or need as a mountain biker, there is a perfect saddle available to you.
