Selle Anatomica NSX Series Hand Made Leather Bike Saddle Review

Selle Antamoica Leather Saddle

Looking for a comfortable bike seat for long cross country rides? If so you will dig the hand made leather bike saddles being built by Selle Anatomica of North America.

Selle Anatomica sent me the NSX Series last year to test and after a few rides, I noticed the stiffer saddle was starting to break in much faster than expected.

How does the saddle ride?

Fast forward 12 months later and I have a leather bike saddle that feels like it was custom built for my butt and style of XC riding. The NSX Series saddle is designed for long rides, you can easily put 20+ miles on it in a day if not much more while being pain-free.

My only complaint with this saddle and it’s most likely a user error is the leather can get scuffed up easily. I tend to flip my bike over when I need to work on it or clean it after a ride, however, I would not recommend that with a fancy saddle like this even if the black looks tough. Keep in mind this saddle is made of full-grain leather and will easily be one of the nicest looking things on your setup, be sure to keep it that way.

The hand made leather Selle Anatomica NSX Series offers a great combination of stiffness support and flexible comfort if that makes sense. Sort of like the Three Bears, the Selle Anatomica NSX Series is just about right.
