Is the Specialized Toupe a good "tri" saddle?

I've read lots of positive reviews on the Toupe but I need a comfortable saddle for long tri's. I have a Fizik Arione but it's not working for me.

Hi
I would say the toupe is not suitable for tri's, unless there is a specific tri model, because of the aero postion your on the nose of the saddle most of the time so more cushioning would be required in the nose of the saddle. Something like the arione tri model.

Look for something with a lot of padding in the nose like the selle italia nova or a tri-specific saddle like the selle italia SLR Tri-1.
