The Pro Turnix Carbon AF Saddle is designed for riders who are somewhere in between an aggressive low aero position, (racers), and someone who prefers a slightly upright position for long rides like fondos or centuries.  If you fit in between those two styles, or like to dabble in both, then the Turnix might be just for you.  AF means "anatomic fit" comes with a cutaway center channel for comfort and airflow.

Note: 7 x 9mm carbon rails require a compatible seatpost clamp or an adapter kit.

Pro Turnix Carbon AF Saddle (Black) (Carbon Rails)
I've tried a lot of saddles....I mean a lot.....Prologo, specialized, Selle Italia, selle San Marco, Fizik....etc
Don't be fooled by the less advertised name....this is made by Shimano and used by Pros...
This is by far the most comfortable, lightest, best made, best looking saddle I've ever ridden.....period!
Bought another one for my Mountain bike!

The first step in choosing your perfect saddle is identifying your riding style. Each PRO saddle is optimized for its intended use: Road riders rely on low weight saddles that fully interact with their movement to venture on long, ambitious rides. While MTB riders are more demanding in strength and durability to overcome rough trails.

Men and women have different sit bone structures and therefore require different saddles. In general, women's saddles are slightly wider in the midsection than men’s saddles. Women often find more comfort in anatomical design features like a cut-out in the saddle or slightly thicker padding.

Your flexibility determines largely which saddle shape is best for you, based on your movement on the saddle. Try it yourself and see which type of rider matches your flexibility.

The ‘Less Flexible’ tends to shift around more. Therefore needs a more curved saddle to maintain an efficient riding position. The ‘Flexible’ rider has a natural, more stable position. Therefore benefiting from the freedom of movement of a flat saddle. The ‘Very Flexible’ rider falls between these two extremes. These riders find comfort in an almost flat saddle with a gentle curve.

Riders that use an aggressive position on the bike can experience numbness or pressure while riding. As they reach toward the handlebar, the pelvis tends to follow and roll forward, unloading weight off the sit bones and onto the soft tissue of the perineum. An anatomic cut-out in the saddle or a saddle with a wider nose helps to relieve that pressure.
