This saddle was created at the MUni and Distance Unicyclist. The first major change is the saddle base. Everywhere your hand may possibly touch, has been extensively designed to be smooth! The base is quite a bit flatter than the conventional unicycle base, easing pressure on the rider when in the saddle for long periods of time.
The foam has been designed to be narrow at the front, so the rider’s legs move without “snagging” on the saddle, perfect for distance and a big advantage for MUni. The foam also has a Stadium shape cut-out of it, this is an advantage as it allows the foam to compress more than solid foam would between the rider’s legs.
The saddle handle has a large hole which is an advantage when you are using brakes. The underside of the handle is now completely flat so that when you grab the saddle there are no obstructions. The saddles base is compatible with all saddle handles on the market, so if you don’t like the big hole handle, you can run the new Impact handle or the classic Kris Holm handle.
Uses a standard seat post with 4-bolt rectangular bracket at the top. Not compatible with pivotal seat posts.

Makes you sore.

I got this saddle on the Nimbus muni I bought and this saddle makes you sore. It is less wide than the older saddle, now known as the Nimbus classic saddle, and it is also less rounded which puts a lot of pressure on your crotch. The padding also leans towards the harder side (although I wouldn't describe it as hard.) An advantage to this design is that it is more male-friendly since the saddle doesn't curve upwards as much, which is great for beginners and mounting mistakes. It also doesn't cause chafing which is a good plus. After a few minutes of riding you really feel this saddle, and when other unicyclists had tried my unicycle, they nicely told me my saddle is uncomfortable.

Too firm for me... May be good if you plan to grind 10+ mile rides, which it sounds like it was designed for. Looks great and seems well made, and will probably last years and years. Got this one as default option when I bought my 3rd Nimbus MUni at unicycle.com. At the time of this purchase, the classic was not an option, which was a bit disappointing. Will order the good ol classic saddle separately, to replace this firm one. The classic saddle works much better for extreme back country hitting rocks, logs, drops etc., and have also served me well on long rides.
Very comfortable saddle!

The best saddle for a unicycle

After using different unicycle saddle I find this to be the best. It fits well to the contour of your body.

This saddle is very firm and seems too wide (or maybe just too flat). Kind of feels like the nimbus gel saddle with the padding removed. Unfortunately the cover is stapled on so it makes adding a bit of softer padding a pain. It is o.k. for a muni saddle because your moving around a lot, but for a cruising/commuting saddle I find it too hard. I'm a large rider (= more weight on it) if you are a lighter rider it will probably be fine.
stadium saddle a little uncomfortable

I have used saddle 20-30 times just seems too firm kind of uncomfortable compared to the nimbus gel saddle perhaps I need to wear some padded bike shorts.Maybe it will soften up with time or I will get used to it.
