With me being new to cycling I have yet to know about all the brands. anone heard of or had any luck with WTB silverado saddles? I talked with a cycle shop for a while about saddles and he said his entire crew swears by them. from what i gathered they were known more as a mountain bike saddle but have come out with a road cycling line.

WTB has a demo program. Ask if your shop participates.

The Silverado looks like a nice choice for a rider who likes a scooped profile and has a more upright posture on the bike. I can tell right away that it won't work for me because I like the widest part of the saddle closer to the butt end. This one will put pressure on my thighs where it says "WTB." My preference has been for old scoop designs like the San Marco Concor and Selle Italia Turbo. I've recently started demo'ing a Fizik Arione, but I'm not sure yet.

What are you using now and what don't you like about it?
