The SDG Bel-Air 2.0 saddle in the all black gripper option is quite possibly the most bad-ass saddle I’ve had the pleasure of mounting to my bike. The SDG Bel-Air 2.0 has been my favorite saddle for at least a decade now, and the 2.0 Ti-Alloy edition with its murdered out color scheme looks amazing.
The Bel-Air has a rear rise and turned down nose shape, with such a nice profile, a product manager from a rival saddle company even commented on it. Though SDG offers lighter models, the Bel-Air holds a sweet spot for me, and at 240 grams comes in at a more than respectable weight.
Full disclosure, SDG has been keeping us in fresh saddles for the last few seasons, which is admittedly pretty awesome, and obviously we have personal bias here. That said, I’ve tried quite a few saddles on the market and this is the one for me. Therefore, I’m labeling this post as an homage as a opposed to a review.
