I'm a big guy, 44yo, 5'10" and 230lbs. But I also ride my hybrid 28miles round trip to work five days a week. I needed a saddle that was comfortable to soak up the road and didn't compress the nether regions. Every saddle I have tried was either too narrow at the tail for my bum, didn't provide enough clearance to avoid compression or was too hard for longer rides. The Serfas RX is very comfortable with a great mix of padding and gel and most importantly the split design makes sure that nothing gets squished. If you're a road warrior with carbon everything this is not the saddle for you. It's too wide and too heavy. But if you're a modestly athletic middle age guy looking to stay in the saddle for a few more decades than you probably can't go wrong with this one.

UPDATED 7/8/2013
I have 1.5 years of 5 day a week, all weather riding on this saddle and I have to say that it's far and away the best saddle I've owned. Since the original post my commute has increased to 35 round-trip miles daily and it's just as comfortable. First off, the build quality is impressive. Despite an approximate 13,000 miles of usage the only signs of wear are some fading of the black lycra fabric covering and the silk screened art has peeled a bit. There are zero popped stitches, fabric tears or signs of structural fatigue. I do think that the gel/padding are getting a bit tired but I only really notice that on bumpier sections of pavement. I have two other bikes with different saddles, one is a road bike and it has the stock saddle with only a shallow channel and the other is my weekend beater and it has an after-market super squishy granny seat. This Serfas RX is far and away my favorite. The only reason I haven't switched out the other two saddles is pure laziness on my part.

Some quick additional notes:
- This saddle is about the split design, not performance, weight or even comfort (although I think it's quite good at soaking up the road).
- It's not a terribly attractive saddle, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and I'll take a weird looking saddle over numbness.
- I don't park my bike outdoors at either work or at home. Protection from the elements may have helped to keep the saddle in good shape.
- Some people have asked me if the split design ever pinches. The answer is no.

I have used several different kinds of bike seats from gel pad tie-ons to body geometry seats with split tails or cut outs. This is the best seat I've ridden on. The fact that it is split all the way from tip to tail is what makes it perfect for me.

I got this seat just before taking a weekend vacation with lots of biking, and it made a big difference. The way the seat fits me had the strange effect of making it almost feel like I wasn't sitting on anything at all. I don't mean that I was having to work harder the way I have to when I'm actually up off the seat like to pedal extra hard up a hill - that gets very tiring very quickly. It felt more like I was getting the power of being off the seat while having the comfort of being on a seat, but the seat is also so comfotable that it almost feels like it isn't there. Hard to describe, and your experience may differ (I think I have a relatively lean butt, which I suppose plays a major role in the fit).

I would recommend this to anyone who has had concerns about the pressure bike seats can put on your perineal muscles and glands.

I got this for my mountain bike after I got back into riding. It has been a awesome seat for me no numbness at all anymore, even after a 42 mile ride we did. This is my first Serfas RX saddle, I was worried it might look to big on my mountain bike but it was the same width as the saddle my bike came with and just a little shorter, it's perfect. It has a little side to side give by design but you hardly notice it. I would recommend this saddle to anybody.

As the title of the review says, this seat is extremely comfortable for short trips (i.e. <20 miles). Once you start getting up there in the miles, however, the issue that you begin facing is your butt begins to move more than ideally because the seat is fabric. The result for me after two back-to-back 90-100 mile days was pretty significant bruising/chafing (in the spots you would expect if riding properly). My advice for longer trips is to splurge the little extra for a similar seat with leather instead of this fabric just so you stay put and don't have to worry about being out of service for a few days. If you just want a comfy seat for short rides, this definitely suffices. Happy riding!

I've put around 60 miles on this seat so far. It's very comfortable even without wearing bike shorts. It may be just my boney butt, but no matter what I wear or sit on, I'm always left feeling at least a little sore after riding more than 10 miles. However, I'm never in any pain and not in too much discomfort while using this seat. This seat is definitely an improvement over my stock seat, and it's much better than a slip-on gel cover. I'll be using this for a while!

I have tried more seats than I care to remember. I ride a hybrid style bike, sitting in an upright position. Average ride is around 2 hours. This seat works well.

In case you are wondering, it is the Serfas RX-921L Men's Bicycle Saddle you get if you order this item. The product number listed and the saddle pictured on Amazon is the RX-921 without the "L", which is slightly different than the RX-921L. I had wanted the RX-921L and wasn't sure what I would get. Thankfully, what's shown in the customer pictures posted is what you get. (Plus the price is much better than compared to local bike shop prices -- at least at this time in my area.) The RX-921L saddle is "split" all the way thru the back unlike the old RX-921. The husband also says this works just like it's supposed to -- no numbness after a long bike ride!

This might not be the prettiest of seats, the bifurcated design looks a bit unusual and the markings aren't lovely, but none of that matters when it's so practical. My previous two saddles both did horrible things to my pudendal nerve that I didn't even notice until the nasty effects built up over time and I gradually realized I was losing feeling in the squirrel zone.

I've been riding the Serfas RX for a few weeks now though and am very pleased with the difference. Sitting on another saddle now just makes me instantly aware of the crushing pressure I used to put in all the wrong places.

I've been riding a long time and can never get the hang of bike shorts. They're exceptionally uncomfortable to me and can even give me pain if I ride with them on too long. This seat takes the place of shorts. I've done up to 80 miles in a day on this seat and it feels great. It's going to be heavier than a typical road bike seat, but I didn't care. I don't race, but I wanted a smallish seat where I didn't need to wear bike shorts on my really long rides. My girlfriend loves this seat as well. We each have two bikes, road and cross bikes, and they all have this seat.

i dont normally write reviews, however this seat deserves some kudos. when i ride my bike im very vertical, ie no hands or just leanin back. countless times a huge pothole has appeared too near to avoid and somehow this seat just takes the beating for my taint/balls. after a major crash i DID managed to bend one of the seat rails, but a neat thing about its design is you can completely disassemble its parts with just a couple screws. so i took out the rails, smashed on em with a hammer and voila the motha fkas like new. cant believe i found this in a clearance bin for like $15
