A well-fitting saddle will put your weight on your sit-bones (or social tuberosities to give them their proper name) without pressurizing soft tissue areas such as genitals or perineum. A badly fitting saddle will likely make itself known with discomfort at the contact point, but they can even be the cause of pains elsewhere, such as the lower back or knees.
Better-specced road bike saddles often come with a host of carbon fiber, and the padding is limited to the right areas in order to save weight. There are thousands of saddles on the market, which can make finding the right one for you a difficult and everlasting process, but thankfully Cycling news is here to help.

The segments form the MSS (multi sector system), designed in collaboration with the Polytechnic of Milano, which breaks the saddle up into independent zones. Each area has a specific level of foam density for tailored support based on pressures that have been mapped when riding in different positions.
Designed initially as a Women's saddle, the Power works well for both sexes, and the snub nose is ideal for those who maintain an aggressive position on the bike. The Easton padding is made using small beads that are expanded into foam which Specialized describes as “the feeling of sitting on 1,000 miniature pillows”.
It features a relatively aggressive curve profile, which locks you into a supportive powerful pedaling platform. Shaman's answer to the short and wide saddle with a large cutout is the PRO Stealth, ideal for those who are ever searching for a low and aero position on their bike.

Choosing the right saddle based on specifications alone might seem like a difficult task, but while the proof is very much in the sitting, the following advice will help you on your way to comfort. Luckily, many brands offer a guarantee that allows you to try a saddle, then return it, should it fail to comply.
Finding the best road bike saddle that fits starts with making sure the seat is supporting your body weight with your sit bones (social tuberosities and pubic RAM) and not the surrounding soft tissues. However, several factors including your flexibility, how aggressive your position on the bike is, and your pedaling style will also play a significant role in the shape you choose.
On the other hand, waved or curved saddles are usually preferred by riders who are more flexible or ride in a long and low, aggressive position. Riders who don't move around much on the saddle also usually prefer a wavy or curved profile as it keeps them locked in place.
Many inflexible riders have also found favor with short-nose or stub-nose saddles, as they enable a more forward position without causing discomfort. The idea here is to eliminate soft tissue pressure by removing the material that would push on the wrong part of your undercarriage.
For some, the cutout is the golden ticket; however, others may find the edge of the channel digs into or pinches sensitive areas. Carbon rails are the lightest, but they may not work with your seat post clamp because of their oval shape.
Most saddles on the market will have a cover made with synthetic leather, and some have reinforced areas or even drippy patches to keep you from sliding around. Different models can add or subtract a few millimeters from your overall saddle height (from the bottom bracket), which can introduce a whole new set of issues.
