The SHC 170 was designed for riders looking for a narrow nose width while still having long distance comfort. Cobb combined their specially engineered, moldable base section with their thinnest memory foam to give you a light weight saddle that has great comfort. There is a strategically placed cutout to help with numbness and nerve pressure, along with Titanium seat rails for lighter weight. The nose measures just 38mm and then tapers back to the 130mm rear section. Even big guy's find this comfortable so don't be afraid to go narrow, it's the shape of the seat top surface that gives comfort.
