Bontrager's Commuter Gel CRZ+ Saddle features gel inserts that flex under load for plush comfort that smooths the roughest roads. Adding to the comfort is the ergonomic CRZ+ relief channel. The tough, water-resistant vinyl top resists water so you can ride even when it's raining. And, even though it's as comfortable as your favorite couch, this sweet saddle boasts a good-looking sleek profile, too.
Every saddle will get various stages of positive and negative reviews. I replaced the Bontrager SSR seat on my Trek FX and love this saddle. I appreciate the additional cushion the Commuter provides. My longest ride so far with this one is 40 miles and I didn't have any seat pains/issues.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
I had and old walmart seat with the springs surrounded by rubber it was great. I bought the Bontrager Commuter beacuse it said it was light and plush, I had upgraded allot of parts on my bike and it was time for the seat.
When you sit on it, its light but only sort of soft. Im not a big guy 5"8' 170p in the woods I was fine under 45min-1hr never noticed it going nutz up and down hills. 2hr lesiure ride on paved trail was very uncomfortable after 60-90min.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
