The Forge's flexible shell combined with an indentation in the center helps keeps the pressure off of those sensitive areas.
|Although the Forge saddle's thin profile may not immediately look it, the combination of the foam padding around the sit bone area and the flexible shell ended up being quite comfortable, even on five hour rides with countless steep dirt road grinds. The back of the saddle, where the majority of your body weight rests, is well supported, while the middle of the shell has a good deal of compliance, allowing it to conform to the body's contours rather than making it feel like you're sitting it on a 2x4. On the descents, the Forge's shape made it easy to shift my weight rearward without needing to adopt the stance of a bowlegged cowboy. This saddle has been in place on everything from long XC rides to rowdy downhill runs, and it's held strong, with no bent rails or tears to be seen. For their first foray into the world of saddle design, ANVL have done an excellent job with the Forge, achieving that elusive blend of light weight and comfort many other saddles fail to attain. - Mike Kazimer|
