    Phenom Comp

    Delivery Icon

    We deliver! Just say when and how.

    The Phenom Comp was designed for comfort and strength over long days on the road or trail. It features a carbon-reinforced shell with outer edges that conform to your body for a near-custom fit. This version, unlike the Expert, has durable Cr-Mo rails for peace of mind, and like the Expert, it has our medium density, Level 2 Padding for ample support and comfort. Likewise, at the tail, you'll find the Phenom hallmarks of a rounded, anti-snag design, and throughout the saddle, an expertly tuned construction that provides the ideal degree of both stiffness and efficiency.

    This is my second Phenom, after14 years it was time to retire my first one. For me this is the best saddle out of the other 5 other brands I have in my bike shed.

    Great fit, needs improvements

    Have 3 of these and love the fit. Over time the plastic has cracked (carbon rail model on my road bike). On my expert model the rails came loose at connecting points (hard tail MTB) Lowest model with cromo rails has held up the best (gravel). Expected more for the price and hope these can be improved. Otherwise love the fit and all day comfort. Wish they would warranty normal use but lack of durability. I’d bet the engineers would learn something from the real world results.

    My preferred saddle, long lasting,

    My preferred saddle, long lasting, comfortable, ligthweight, sufficient padding. This is the 3rd such one I have purpose, although stay away from the carbon rails if you are a frequently on the mountain bike as it will not last.

    8 Years with the old white version of this...

    I used this saddle because it came with my Crux I bought 8 years ago.. If your sitz bones are narrow enough for this saddle I'm sure it would be great, I've done multiple 150km plus rides on this saddle and it was atrocious, it pushed in the inner side of my sitz bones and no matter how far back I sat the bones had no flat surface. IF you measure your sitz bone width and happen to have a narrow distance, this would be awesome.

    Very nice saddle for gravel

    Very nice saddle for gravel riding. Narrower than the power line for more comfort on the drops, but for l more forgiving and versatile than the romin when things get bumpy

    ehh.......not super stoked

    I must say that I was expecting much more when purchasing such a pricey saddle. On paper it looks like a killer product. After riding for a while, I started to get some unexplained noises. I thought it was my dropper post.I just let it slide and the squeaks got louder over time. Finally, I swapped out my seat and all the noise subsided. Im not really sure what's going on with these seats but has something to do with rails and how they attach to the seat. I hope there is a fix for this and Specialized works it out.

    Awesome saddle

    This is my go to saddle and have it on all my bikes. Comfortable for Long days on the gravel bike or hitting up MTB trails for epic 6hr rides.

    Good but very firm

    I like the shape of the Phenom but it's too firm to be comfortable for very long. Even if I'm riding technical trails where I'm in and out of the saddle my max ride time is 2 hours - less if there's a lot of seated climbing. The saddle is well made but either the base or the padding need to be more flexible. I'm not looking for a saddle as I've ridden road and MTB for decades but this is too firm for me.
