With a name like this, the BBB Razer competition saddle hardly sounds the most comfortable of road bike perches. And so it proved with the 130mm-width one that I tried first. Fortunately BBB also offer a 140mm version, which fitted my sit bones better. Like its slender sibling this would suit cyclists seeking a lightweight, durable and competitively priced saddle for the winter trainer or cyclo-cross bike.
The WCS Streem Carbon Rail saddle is Richey’s top offering, with carbon rails and a carbon shell, it is light but that lack of weight comes at a price. Playing safe and adopting a shape similar to the SLR, it could almost be mistaken for the Carbonio version of the Selle Italia classic. However with the SLR’s following this can’t be a bad design move and being my saddle of preference, I was looking forward to testing the Streem out.
