I rode in one, once, several years ago. I still remember now, how much I loved it way back then... my position was better, it was so comfortable, and it was beautiful. Big thumbs up for L'Apogee saddles

The model I had just didn't fit anything in our barn particularly well. It was a medium tree and I think it ran pretty wide - I even contacted the company to double check it wasn't a wide tree. I liked the saddle so much that I tried to make it work for about 6 months with various different pads - couldn't get it to stop rocking no matter the pad combo, just too darn wide. So sold it for a medium tree Amerigo...which fit like a glove.
I just tried it today for the first time and I have to say, I am not sure about the saddle... I dont know if maybe its the fit on me that I dont like or the constant "breathing" the saddle does from every movement... Does anyone elses L'apogee "breath" loudly? And if so, is there any way to fix that??
