It's a very neutral seat. It does not offer great comfort, but the main complaint with the stock seat was "cut in" at the thigh area. My first initial ride did not compound this problem, nor was it dismissed. I will need a few more rides to figure out how it stacks up. I'll be riding again this weekend. I'm also working on an SC seat to compare the two. The Sargent seat offers no cushy comfort, but an 84 minute ride did not elicit the same lower body discomfort as the stock seat. More to come. Be patient. It will take time for a real evaluation that helps others.
