The Plus has been Cobb Cyclings main “go to” saddle for several years and it’s the seat we recommend for the widest variety of riders and riding events. John Cobb himself thought it was time for a little updating to this veteran product, and he wanted to have longer seat rails for better range adjustability and integration of the rear water system. John took a little weight out of the saddle, changed the bottom edge of the base to help make the saddle look thinner and to help with inner leg chafing. He also eliminated a couple of seams to help it be more water/sweat proof and implemented all new graphics. Cobb's main goal was to not mess the saddle up as the Plus has been a great product and we believe you will see that Cobb have succeeded in bringing you a new and improved Plus2 saddle.
