Testing the Romin you need to be open to change the old reverences given by your old saddle. The first moment testing the Romin Evo was quite odd. You are radically placed on your two sitbones and for the first 15 minutes that doesn't give a very comfortable feeling. Second i missed the presure (pain) in the middle of the saddle, which used to be a indication of power and speed. These two initial cons were rebuttaled by the immediate feeling my legs had more space and freedom to move. That was strange i had expected my wing frex Arione had given me maximal freedom but perhaps it can be explaned by the size of my saddle: after measuring i got the smaller size 130mm.
With this extra moving freedom for my legs i slowly got used to this new saddle, and after 2 months and about 1200 km i can say: I love it and i don't want anything else anymore. After some re-positioning of the saddle i discovered the benifits of the curve-up at the back of the Romin. The scientist say it allows you not to bend your back so much as you need to with a flatter saddle, and my back really feels it. NO MORE BACKPAIN!!! Last months i cycled twice on my other bike (my Canyon for climbing) and after 40kmy backpain returned. For me the Romin saddle is a delight, after getting used to the pressure on my sitbones. I feel more freedom to move, i sit more tight in the saddle and my back is very happy finally. This saddle delivered more than i ever thought would be possible.
The only negative to mention on the Romin saddle is that we cannot buy the white or Team version of the Romin Pro of Evo in the Netherlands nor the EU. That is grazy and almost unacceptable after these these two great reviews and my personal experience. I need an second saddle (team version) for my climbing bike to save my back, but how do i get one?
