The top 17 best road bike saddles for long rides

In this article I’m going to focus on a number of the best road bike saddles for long rides.

Saddles are such a personal choice, so in this list I’m covering a number of big brand names with a wide variety of saddles that should suit the majority of road racers out there.

Since everybody’s budget is different as well, I’ve also included saddles that are entry-level models using less expensive materials, up to premium performance models made from carbon. Where carbon is known for its damping properties, both in the shell and rails of the saddle, the increase in price is extreme, whereas the benefits can be perceived as marginal in relation to it.

There’s a table at the end of the list where you get a clear overview between the various specifications of the saddles. They range from very large saddles like the Fizik Arione of 300 millimeters to short-nosed saddles that have seen a huge rise in popularity.

With respect to width the classic models from Brooks I’ve chosen offer a wide shell of 158 mm for the widest version of the listed Camium models, all the way down to narrow performance saddles around 130 millimeters.

Materials range from nylon, vulcanized rubber, and carbon composite shells, titanium, steel, and carbon rails. And various plushness in padding, from firm to gel enhanced versions.

As you can see, there is a wide variety to pick from. So let’s head over to the overview of the best road bike saddles for long rides.

Fabric Line Elite Shallow

Line Elite Shallow
Line Elite Shallow

The Fabric Line Elite Shallow is a great value-for-money allround saddle that will suit the majority of riders.

Its nylon shell is supported by titanium rails and has a narrow width of 134 millimeters and a length of 270 millimeters. For the materials used and the padding it has a reasonable weight of 237 grams.

Shallow means the saddle supports a more upright position with a medium amount of padding versus the more race-oriented flat saddles. This means it’s suited for riders who like to ride on the hoods, but it’s safe to say that the saddle feels equally comfortable in the drops.

The very clean design of the saddle features a non-padded center that runs the length of the saddle, with padding on either side.

The overall allure of this saddle resides in the combination of price, comfort, design and allround suitability. It’s the perfect choice for weekend warriors who favor short leisurely rides that won’t cross the 100 mile mark. Although saddles will also always be a very personal choice, this saddle has been in Fabric’s lineup for years for good reason.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that it’s going to be the out and out best choice of saddle for serious mile-munching, but for me it’s ideal for my usual training distance of about 50-60 miles. At this mileage I suffered zero numbness in the perineum, and I didn’t get soreness anywhere either.

Pros and Cons

Brooks C13

C13
C13

The Brooks C13 is a relatively small road racing saddle in Brooks Cambium lineup.

The Cambium line was a brilliant move from Brooks, to significantly increase their product offering with something that was at the same time unique but adhering to more modern saddle standards.

The traditional Brooks break-in period doesn’t apply to Cambium saddles and the C13 offers an even more modern take, with carbon rails.

Brooks did an enormous amount of R&D that goes into their proprietary shell and it shows. This saddle is still pretty heavy with the smaller version just under 300 grams, but you get a high-quality saddle in return that promises to be one of the most comfortable in the market.

At 145 millimeters it has about an average width for a road bike saddle, and the aluminum rivets still give it that authentic-looking feel.

The only downside is the price, because with the carbon rails, it does mean this saddle is very pricey indeed.

Expert Experience

Jez Ash | Contributor – April 15, 2016

I really wanted to like the Cambium C13, and it’s seen a lot of use over the last three months. In the end, though, it just wasn’t as comfortable for me as other saddles. We’re all different, though, and saddles are an area where this is very much the case, so it’s quite possible that your bum would love it. I’ve given it a good mark as it’s a lovely thing, very well made and I’ve heard enough anecdotal evidence to establish that other people find it very comfortable. I’m just not one of them. I suspect that a wider version with the cutout could be a better match for my behind.

Pros and Cons

Brooks C15

C15
C15

The Brooks C15 is a tad bit longer than its C13 cousin measuring 283 x 140 mm.

It looks a lot like that saddle in that it uses the same material for the shell, rivets, and cover, but as for the ride feel it’s quite different.

For starters the C15 sits on steel rails, which drastically reduces the price. Carbon rails are known for taking out a bit more road buzz and being more flexible, which makes the C15 feel a bit stiffer.

Obviously it’s beautifully finished but that longer shape and steel rails does mean you’re looking at a saddle weighing 450 grams. A weight I do not necessarily consider to be in line with a true racing machine. For the same amount of money you can have a saddle that weighs less than half.

With its race shape, with great clearance, high level of comfort, and weight, the C15 is kind of an odd saddle in the performance category. But the far majority of people prefer comfort any day over the extra 150 grams.

So that means you choose the C15 for its looks, and the overall ride quality of the vulcanized upper, which is fantastic.

Expert Experience

Nick BruckBauer | Contributor – October 24, 2019

The Brooks Cambium C15 is a unique saddle with classic looks reminiscent of Brooks’s famous leather saddles. Brooks has long been known for high quality tensioned leather saddles with their timeless quality and classic aesthetics. The Cambium maintains some of the iconic Brooks looks but aims to up the performance with a more modern shape and lower weight. The shell of the saddle is made of Vulcanized Natural Rubber, giving the saddle unique ride characteristics. Riders looking for a durable saddle with classic styling will appreciate the Cambium C15. The Cambium is well suited to commuting or touring duty (if a flexible shell is what you are looking for). We probably wouldn’t use this saddle on our road bike if speed and performance are the priority.

Pros and Cons

Brooks C15 Carved

C15 Carved
C15 Carved

The Brooks C15 Carved is the same version as the regular C15, except it has a cut out.

As with the Brooks C13, whether or not you opt for the cut out version is up to. Just remember you get a bit more compliance out of the saddle because of the missing material.

Expert Experience

Stu Kerton | Senior Product Reviewer – September 08, 2018

I found the narrow nose of the C15 perfect for the type of riding it’s intended for. I could get really low and pedal hard without my thighs rubbing against the sides or feeling like anything was getting crushed.

Its one downside is its weight: 426g is pretty massive for a performance saddle and it is noticeable, although it’s a good compromise with the comfort. The C15 is really in its element on a quick audax machine or long range tourer/bikepacking expedition where you want the racier position but with some forgiveness.

Pros and Cons

Fizik Vento Argo R5

Vento Argo R5
Vento Argo R5

As far as budget goes the Fizik Vento Argo R5 is the most premium option on this list with a suggested retail price of 99 euros. It can be had for cheaper on Amazon though.

It’s another very well made short-nosed saddle with a carbon-reinforced nylon shell with a large center cut out. This cut out transitions into a lower surface area both front and back, planting you firmly in place.

This version also has an alloy rail to keep costs down and a width of either 140 mm for the small or 150 mm for the larger version.

This saddle offers ample amounts of comfort for relaxed road riding, thanks to the plush padding and cut out.

Expert Experience

Guy Kesteven | Contributor – September 30, 2020

I found getting the correct saddle angle crucial for settling into the comfort sweet spot. On my first few rides with the saddle orientated in a level position, I tended to shift backwards too much onto the broad, flat rear which interfered with pedalling. Set it nose down though and you’re naturally tipped into the flexible hammock of the cut-out section, with the very firm front dropped out of harm’s way. The big central cut out had several fans among our test team and it’s certainly a well-vented saddle that can really soften road/off-road shock through the springy shell.

Pros and Cons

Fizik Arione R1 Open

Arione R1 Open
Arione R1 Open

The Fizik Arione R1 Open is the cut out version of the regular R1.

A lot of manufacturers make cut out versions of all of their saddles and Fizik is no exception, basically doubling their entire lineup. The cut out is rather small but sits in an area lower than the two padded halves and moves all the way down the length of the saddle.

The carbon version is actually a bit heavier than the non-cut out version at almost 200 grams.

There’s plenty of room to mount your carbon-specific seatpost on the braided carbon rails. The overall very long design is something you hate or love, because the added length in the back is mainly there for aesthetic purposes.

The carbon composite shell is a tad wider than the regular R1 at 132 millimeters, but still very narrow.

The standard R1 is already a very comfortable saddle, but if you like your performance racing perch with a cut out, the R1 Open is your obvious choice.

Pros and Cons

Fizik Arione R1

Arione R1
Arione R1

If you like your saddles long, the Fizik Arione R1 measuring at almost 1 foot seems to dwarf some of its shorter competitors, especially short-nosed versions.

The flat design of the very lightweight 163 grams version is extremely narrow at 126 millimeters. Fizik also offers a wider 140 millimeter version. With such a length and its arrowlike shape, the Arione saddles are easily recognizable.

The long nose doesn’t interfere with your riding if you’re the type of person who’s a little less flexible in the pelvic area and uses the upper body more to reach the drops. The narrowness of the saddle offers loads of thigh clearance and a well-padded and flexible carbon composite shell, which is compatible with Fizik’s saddle accessories as well.

All those features make it sound like the Fizik Arione R1 is a comfortable saddle and it is.

I believe the extended area at the back is more of a design feature than actually meant for sitting on while pedaling, but you know for sure there’s more than enough room to move and you’ll never run out of space when climbing.

Expert Experience

Mat Brett | Technical editor – April 19, 2017

I get on really well with the degree of flex offered by the Arione’s shell and the amount of padding used, which is quite generous for a saddle of this kind. It’s soft, but not too soft, helping to cancel out vibration and take the edge off lumps and bumps in the road without being so squishy that it moves about as you pedal. The padding on the nose is much more generous than you get with many other performance-type saddles out there, so if you’re looking for a little more plushness in your seating, an Arione is worth checking out (as long as you’re a snake, like).

Pros and Cons

Selle Italia Flite Boost TM

Flite Boost TM
Flite Boost TM

The Selle Italia Flite Boost TM is the non-cut out version the one appended with Superflow.

Selle Italia has a penchant for huge cut outs, but this version adds a mere 10 grams to the weight, tipping the scales at about 240 grams.

That’s a respectable weight for a high-quality endurance saddle. I already covered the Superflow version but I have to reiterate that in terms of comfort and value-for-money, this is one of the best all-round saddles for long distance riding in the market today.

So unless you really have something against shorter saddles, because this is one of those, consider this one.

Pros and Cons

Selle Italia Flite Boost TM Superflow

Flite Boost TM Superflow
Flite Boost TM Superflow

Selle has gone all-in with short-nosed saddles and the Selle Italia Flite Boost TM Superflow is a great affordable option.

The Flite name has been around for an extremely long time, but this saddle looks nothing like the first iterations.

The narrow version of this saddle sits at 135 x 248 millimeters. The stubby nose means less sliding around, for those who appreciate that, putting your body more firmly in place and more easily in a forward position. The entire notion is a better power transfer to the pedals.

True to both its racing and endurance nature this is an almost entirely flat saddle with a huge cut out, something a lot of Selle Italia saddles are known for. And it offers a thicker padding to stay comfortable with long hours in the saddle.

The overall build quality of this saddle is superb, with a gorgeous perforated Soft-Tek microfiber upper and subtle brand covering.

Although not cheap per se, you get a lot of tech from one of the biggest brands in the saddle industry.

Pros and Cons

Selle Italia Novus Endurance TM Superflow

Novus Endurance TM Superflow
Novus Endurance TM Superflow

With endurance in its name it should be obvious what the Selle Italia Novus Endurance TM Superflow is for.

Its unique-looking design looks similar to those used by ISM, with the nose cut in half and slightly dipping.

This affordable long-distance offering features a lot of extra padding for a weight penalty, tipping the scales over 300 grams. But this is not a saddle for those looking to shave an extra 100 grams of their bike, and people who’ll actually be doing gran fondos will care less about such a thing.

What they will care about is comfort and this saddle excels in that area. You can actually take this saddle on roads that don’t necessarily resemble smooth tarmac, and the plush ride will allow you to enjoy it from start to finish.

Selle Italia offers a number of magnificent showpieces, and this saddle is not among them. It’s purely functional with a core focus on being able to eat mile after mile of road. So if that’s your thing there aren’t many options that offer a greater return on investment, if any.

Pros and Cons

Selle Italia Novus Superflow Endurance

Novus Superflow Endurance
Novus Superflow Endurance

The Selle Italia Novus Superflow Endurance has endurance in the title, so what exactly is so different about this saddle to earn that moniker.

For starters, the two-pronged split-nosed design sitting on titanium rails is distinctive enough. It means the cut out of the saddle extends all the way to the front of the nose, reminiscent of those produced by time-trial favorite ISM.

Where you can actually sit the two shell halves not only offer extra padded support, but also a layer of gel padding to add to the overall damping qualities of the saddle. A durable Fibra-Tek perforated microfiber cover has the Selle Italia logo on it.

The overall build quality is downright amazing, and the long and narrow shape of the saddle measuring 138 x 282 mm for the regular size and 149 x 282 mm for the large one, means there’s plenty of room to find the correct position for your sit bones.

The reason why you have to pay twice the amount of money vs the TM version is the composition of the shell. Where this one uses carbon fiber, the other one is made from nylon. And that carbon shell sits on top of titanium rails instead of a manganese steel one. That means a more flexible perch and just some more damping effects as well, with the tiniest of weight gains as well.

Granted the split nose design might equally split onlookers into categories of those who hate and those who love it, but there’s no denying that this saddle will save your behind on longer rides.

Expert Experience

Matthew Loveridge | Senior Writer – October 11, 2016

My experience on the road suggests that the design is very effective. Thanks to padding that’s a good compromise — it’s supportive but not unforgiving to your sit bones — you don’t sink into the saddle too much, and the channel in the middle does its job. If you’re a fan of cut-outs and aren’t too bothered about the few extra grams it carries compared to a more weight-focused saddle, the Novus SuperFlow is definitely worth a go.

Pros and Cons

Selle Italia SLR Boost Endurance Superflow

SLR Boost Endurance Superflow
SLR Boost Endurance Superflow

At 202 grams the Selle Italia SLR Boost Endurance Superflow is a featherweight short-nosed premium performance saddle.

SLR denotes Selle Italia’s foray into short-nosed perches and at 130 x 248 mm for the regular and 145 x 248 mm for the wide version, they are short indeed.

The swooping design is felt even more by the gel padded cover. It’s amazing that Selle Italia has managed to cram so much comfort and padding onto a saddle that weighs so little.

Like most of Selle Italia’s premium endurance saddles, this one features titanium rails and durable Fibra-tek cover onto a carbon composite shell.

Saddles are exceptionally personal product offerings, and when buying such an expensive one as this one you want one that’s right for you.

This saddle is anything but cheap, but for that premium you get one of the lightest endurance saddles in the market for long comfortable hours in the saddle.

Expert Experience

Paul Robson | Editor – January 21, 2021

I can generally get on with just about any saddle over modest distances, but for longer rides I have found pressure relief channels to be a really effective way of increasing comfort. The SLR Boost Endurance’s channel is wide enough to offer genuine relief, so with the rear of the saddle shaped to support the sit bones and encourage hip rotation, it lived up to its billing during my test period.

Pros and Cons

Selle Italia SLR Boost TM

SLR Boost TM
SLR Boost TM

If you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on an SLR saddle, the more moderately priced Selle Italia SLR Boost TM is a great way to venture into short-nosed saddles from this Italian manufacturer.

Although it’s much more affordable it’s just slightly heavier at 220 grams, and I’m not convinced a person will notice a 20 grams difference to anyone. This one has manganese steel rails versus the titanium one. The 7 millimeter diameter rails ensure they’ll be compatible with standard seatposts.

The rails are attached to a nylon shell. That means it’s less forgiving and more firm than either a full carbon or carbon composite shell, which will cost you way more money. Of course it’s difficult to explain what more firm actually feels like for the individual, and some people actually prefer firm saddles.

Expert Experience

Robin Wilmott | Contributor – June 7, 2020

Its base is essentially a textured cover applied directly to the shell with virtually no cushioning effect, but at each side the dense padding gets thicker towards your sit bones and provides effective comfort.

There’s no doubt this is a firmer perch than some, but its sculpted shape positions you well, and feels very supportive, with no need to move around.

In a tuck, the flat, wide nose isn’t intrusive and that shallow pressure-relief channel does work far better than you’d expect, keeping the SLR Boost true to its uncompromisingly racy roots.

Pros and Cons

Selle Italia SLR Superflow

SLR Superflow
SLR Superflow

The Selle Italia SLR Superflow is a classically shaped high performance road racing saddle.

With widths of 131 and 145 millimeters and an average length of 275 millimeters the carbon composite shell features the large cut out that Selle Italia saddles are known for.

Just like many other premium saddles from the brand, the shell is held into place onto the seatpost with titanium rails.

The large cut out, its length, and shell material means there high levels of natural damping combined with a flexy shell that prevents chafing.

Even with this length it doesn’t mean the nose is truly supportive to be sitting on for extended periods of time. If you prefer such a position you’ll need to be looking into the boost (short-nosed) version of the SLR.

Expert Experience

Nick Burklow | Contributor – October 12, 2013

Riding this saddle has been a dream. From the first ride to the last, I have had zero complaints. Chafing and numbness are a thing of the past. For me, this saddle sits at the top of my preferences when it comes options for my road bike. It works with my anatomy extremely well. I am a bigger rider (6’2″ 215lbs), and a cutout has always been a must have. This super wide cutout has made a noticeable difference in comfort for me as compared to the other saddles I have been on. The flat top is supportive over long rides, and yields very little fatigue thanks to the flex of the wings. The ti rails help to add a bit of comfort as well.

Pros and Cons

Selle Italia SLR TM Superflow

SLR TM Superflow
SLR TM Superflow

The Selle Italia SLR TM Superflow is pretty similar in specs to the Selle Italia Flite Boost TM Superflow except it offers a more traditional design.

If you’re not into short-nosed saddles, the classic design of the SLR measures 131 x 275 millimeters. As with many other saddles from Selle Italia, it offers a large center cut out for pressure relief.

You get a nylon shell with extra padding for comfortable rides. A manganese rails for a bit of flex to take out road buzz, in a package weighing 205 grams.

It’s a classically shaped road bike saddle from this big brand name, which offers loads of comfort for everyday riding and endurance races.

Pros and Cons

Selle Italia SP-01 Boost Kit Carbonio Superflow

SP-01 Boost Kit Carbonio Superflow
SP-01 Boost Kit Carbonio Superflow

The naming conventions of Selle Italia are very confusing indeed, until you understand that they simply have a fancy way of putting saddle parts into the name. The Selle Italia SP-01 Boost Kit Carbonio Superflow is a good example.

SP-01 refers to a new innovation where the two halves of the saddle are only held together at the nose. In this case we’re talking about a carbon composite shell dropping the weight to below the magic 200 gram mark at 160. That’s featherweight territory.

Kit Carbonio refers to the carbon rails, which further adds to the premium feel of the saddle. It adds an extra damping factor, but do keep in mind the oval rails need a compatible seatpost. The unique looking rails adds an additional shock absorption factor to the overall high comfort level obtained by the prolific use of carbon throughout the entire saddle

Superflow is Selle Italia’s way of describing their saddle cut outs, which are large and prominent. Even more so with the SP-01 outlandish shape.

And Boost is their way of telling you’re dealing with a short-nosed version of the saddle. With a single size of 130 x 250 mm it’s not only short but also narrow. The taper at the front does lead to a wider nose than on non-boost saddles, which makes a more forward position a comfortable possibility.

It’s the SP-01 saddle that provides the most performance and flexibility in use, with just the more outrageous full carbon Tekno trumping it. The saddle is both a gorgeous and astonishing feat of saddle engineering, that provides the absolute best the Italian company has to offer to the serious road cyclist.

Expert Experience

Mat Brett | Technical editor – March 17, 2019

Don’t get the wrong idea, it’s not like there’s a load of downward movement with every pedal stroke because the CarboKeramic (carbon fibre with a ceramic coating) rails hold things in check and the majority of your weight is positioned towards the front of the saddle most of the time. It’s much more subtle than that, resulting in a very comfortable ride. I’ve never been particularly attracted by saddles with massive chasms down the middle before, but I’ve got on really well with this one. You get a middling amount of padding here, but it feels deeper because of the ‘give’ offered by the SP-01 design.

Pros and Cons

Prologo Nago Evo Pas

Nago Evo Pas
Nago Evo Pas

Prologo offers high build quality when it comes to road bike saddles, and the Prologo Nago Evo Pas is a gorgeous allround saddle for dynamic riding.

I can understand why the overall shape of the saddle made Prologo state the saddle can also be used for cross-country rides.

You have the option of two different types of material for the rails, with the carbon version dipping below 200 grams at 185 grams. With TiroX steel alloy it means the saddle will sit at 211, which is still pretty light for a non-carbon saddle.

Forgoing a center cut out this saddle instead has a no-padded area in the middle. And at 275 x 134 millimeters it has a narrow width and standard road racing length.

Expert Experience

Stu Kerton | Senior Product Reviewer – March 07, 2018

We all know saddles are very personal but I found the Nago a very neutral shape and easy to get on with. I rode about 1000 miles on the Storck branded Nago on the Fenomalist a couple of months back and had no issues with it at all once it broke in, just that it takes a long time to get there. The CPC tubes on this one though take just that little bit of the harshness out as they compress meaning it’s comfortable from day one.

In terms of grip I’m not really one to slide about on the saddle but the resistance is there and it certainly does help with some of the more shiny shorts materials. The CPC will also pay dividends if you use your road bike for time trialling or triathlon as it’ll stop you sliding you up to the nose when in the tri bars.
