CyclingNews Boost Saddle Review: "Love at First Sit"

Monday, August 31, 2020

CyclingNews posted a review of the Boost saddle, praising its “striking profile, immensely comfortable padding, and light weight.” Editors gave it a near-perfect rating of 4.5 stars (out of 5).

“At 141g it’s a supremely light saddle,” wrote tester Graham Cottingham. “By using an integrated rail segment that is formed using a method CADEX calls 'Advanced Forged Composite Technology' (AFCT), intricate rail shapes are created which are claimed to make the saddle lighter and stiffer where needed—all the better for dissipating road vibrations.”
 
As for how it performed on the road, Cottingham wrote: “Safe to say, it was love at first sit. The raised rear end encourages a little shuffling forward into an aggressive position and paired with the concave transition onto the saddle's shoulders, more power can be driven into the pedals. That said, I found the centre of the saddle was more than accommodating due to its profile and superb padding.”
