I don’t know how but its made the bike feel faster and more responsive. The Spoon is perfectly shaped to grip with my legs when I lean back on really steep and fast descents. It’s reasonably light at 268g and even lighter for the Ti railed version. The brown colour looks great but it's also available in white, grey and black. Value for money is great at only £19.99, much cheaper than most saddles this good. I'm definitely keeping this saddle although the SDG Bel-Air will remain as my all time favourite due to its extra padding.
