ISM Road

Does anyone use a ISM road saddle? I have a loaner but haven't ridden it yet?

Let me know how you like it. Everyone I know loves theirs and I am thinking of getting the ISM Prolog. Would like a few more reviews before I pull the trigger on one.

Tested it for the first time Friday. No pressure what so ever on the sensitive areas. It's wider than my previous saddle (Fizik Antares) , so it feels like its rubbing a-little. It was comfortable though I only road 7 miles. I have it for another week so I will gradually do more miles. I will keep you posted. .

Thanks,

There's nothing wrong with my saddle until I start getting past 50 miles. It starts getting a bit hard on the sit bones after that.

I ended up trying out the ISM Breakaway and liked it much more. It's a little longer then the road but narrower. I ended up ordering one and I'm eating for it to come in. I'll send some pictures once I get it.

The Prolog has a narrower and longer nose than the road as well. I wonder what the difference is between the Prolog and the Breakaway?

No sure. I really like the breakaway though.

From the photos, it looks as if the only difference is that the Prolog has a thinner nose. It's also suppose to have a bit more padding.

I saw Same winning design as the Adamo Racing, but with more gel, more foam padding and a slightly wider cutout between the front arms which increases pudendal artery blood flow.

So, Potts....
What's the verdict?
I'm just about to sell my current seat (eBay auction ends on 2 hours). I'm leaning toward the road. But I'm concerned about the price & not liking it.
