Wunderlich Low

Just picked up this Wunderlich seat used (the only way I would get one) They are $$ new.

First impression was "What the hell!" IT felt like sitting on a 2x4. This thing is FIRM! After a short blast around town I started to get it. IT is very hot here in Toronto and very humid too.. the seat somehow flows air better than the stock low seat, I guess you don't sink in. Or the leather (fake leather?) breathes better than vinyl.

The seat height is a bit higher than the OEM low. I would say 1/2 to 3/4 inch taller.

Big plus is that you can slide fore and aft better, the shape is flatter and goes back further than the OEM low.

So far it it feels much better. Will have to wait and see how it goes with a few hours in the saddle.
