ISM Adamo Attack tri saddle review

ISM have broken plenty of ground in the saddle world with their range of ‘noseless’ perches. The 318g Attack is one of the longer, narrower models for people who like to move around more on their saddle.

At 11cm wide, it’s slimmer than other tri saddles and that lack of width makes it much easier to shift yourself onto the back of the saddle. Without wide flanks, you can ride without feeling like you’re being constantly coerced onto the tips at the front.

The Attack isn’t as firm either as some rivals like the Specialized Sitero, which is a good thing since more of your rear end is making contact with it. Although it’s not the most expensive saddle out there, £175 is enough to make you think twice about purchasing a saddle – even one, like this, that has titanium rails.  

But if you’re not certain that a wider, stubbier, harder tri saddle is for you, the Attack is a fine way to take that first step away from the trad road-saddle shape.

Verdict: Easier to adapt to than most tri-specific ‘noseless’ saddles and easier to move around on, 86%
