Aire versus Spoon

by Joselito   April 9, 2013  

Time to get arse in gear and get a new saddle.
Looking at the popular Charge Spoon or the Spa Cycles Aire.
Both have good reviews but I was wondering what personal experience of either fellow forumites have. Ta.

i've used a spoon since it came out, and i love it. the aire is cracking value and rob loved it when he tested it on here. if you're used to breaking in saddles and living with them that might be the better bet; if you want something that's plush from the off but probably won't last as long, maybe the spoon. but try both if you can, cause as ever saddles are a very personal thing.

I didn't like the spoon, the stitching seemed to chafe.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice...

As wiggle had some going for £23 I ended up going for the Bill Amberg (who he? Bella Emberg's brother?) Leather / Charge Pan.
Will it come back and bite me on the arse?
