I do not know the size of the standard, but it is much smaller than the genuine saddle I was riding, and the height is also low. And harder than anything! It is! I do not feel anything like a gel. I could say well the wall thickness. I was deceived by the item title ... The rude genuine saddle before exchanging is more comfortable to ride! It is frustrating, but I am using it only. Sorry!
Size feeling is totally together with normal mamacari, hardness does not change too much. (I thought that the saddle was bigger and more soft) The guard on the side is also plated plastic and not metal. What is the price difference about three times that of an inexpensive saddle? Is it? It is making. Actually it does not ride for a long time, so we do not know the effect. It depends on the weight and the size of the buttocks so please review this review for reference level.
