That's what the tristan and no name were. But for whatever reason, I sat inthe Euro and it was like it was custom made for me. Even though it had big ole blocks in it and a deep seat, there was enough space for me to move and not be forced into a position. I could just live in that saddle!
That's been my experience with the Anky Salinero XCH. Got it last fall, still loving it, and as good as it was before, after having the saddle fitter out to customize the flocking, it's heaven. Now I hate having to ride in anyone else's saddle. Fortunately, I don't have to!
