Standard padding or the extra padding of the Soft Seat - that is the question.
Center photo of lighter color saddle DOES NOT have the
extra padding that is in the Soft Seat.
Why select the extra padding of the Soft Seat?
There are some points to consider when deciding to select this option-with
the Soft Seat. First, you will lose some of the room that the saddle has
to offer for your rear-end - so if you are between sizes use this to help gauge
your seat size. Secondly when you select the Soft Seat, you will lose a
bit of the "pocket" to sit down in, (since the extra padding is now there for
your rear-end and /or your bone-y butt bones). Lastly, with the Soft Seat,
the saddle will have a bit of a narrower twist. The twist is the part that is
between your thighs (your crotch area). Therefore, if you like a narrower twist,
have a bony butt or need a smaller seat size, adding the extra padding of the
Soft Seat is key.
The Soft-Seat is soft and easy to care for. It has NO stitching
lines that can fill up with dirt and grime making a saddles seat difficult
or impossible to clean. Also having a seat with no stitching keeps the
saddles seat soft, as the more a saddles seat is stitched the firmer it
A similar model
to consider is the Battery, which is made
off of the same saddle tree:
The Tree on the RIGHT is the McMullen Saddle tree.
The Tree on the LEFT is the Endurance saddle tree.
