Specialized Avatar Comp Gel Saddle

With its ergonomic design and gel padding, Specialized's Avatar Comp Gel is the perfect upgrade for more comfort on every ride. Specialized's Body Geometry technology takes the pressure away with a cut-out center channel and gel padding in all the right places. You'll also love the lightweight chromoly rails, the supportive, vibration-damping, carbon-reinforced shell and weather-resistant Micromatrix top.

Low Cost, High Performance

About Me


During a bike fitting over 2 years ago I was offered this saddle along with 3 or 4 others. I immediately felt that this was the most comfortable option. Now 2+ years later I have ridden thousands of miles, multiple century rides, a half and full iron triathlon, and dozens of short distance triathlons and time trials and this saddle has been fantastic. The gel was just enough to offer some cushioning that you sacrifice with the thinner chamois on tri shorts/suits. I've swapped this saddle between multiple bikes and never had issues with it slipping, creaking, or anything.

About Me


Although this saddle is quite comfortable and seems durable (no noticeable wear after 5k miles). The nose of this saddle has a plastic piece that connects to the rails and a plastic body of the saddle that when you sit on it compress and rub. This causes a horrible squeeking noise that no amount of lube seems to solve. My neighbor rides the same saddle and has the same issue. I have been looking at the higher end saddles that seem to have a single part that does both functions, perhaps those will not squeek. Specialized needs to resolve this obvious design weakness, because otherwise this is a great saddle.

Comfort & Function

By Gobadude

About Me


I don't know how Specialized does it, but their saddles always work for me. Out of the many I've tried over 25 years of riding, Specialized is always comfortable, functional and lets me ride 50 miles at a time without worrying about numbness, discomfort or other problems. I'm currently riding this model and it has been wonderful. I highly recommend it.
