      I quite like my Naomi saddle for being flat-but-not-too-flat, but I imagine that cutaway and thicker foam makes for an even better ride! Any idea on pricing?

        By comparison, the Naomi has quite a bit more curve than the Stadium. I do like the thinness of the Naomi.

            From what I've heard, they should be arriving at UDC in the next shipment, in early August.

              Thanks! I can't wait! I really like my Zero, but before that I rode a Nimbus Flat Saddle and loved it except for the width.

                Huh, the Naomi feels a hell of a lot flatter than my other saddles. Now I'm a bit worried the Stadium will be *too* flat, like the Fusion Zero!

                Still tempted though. I'll see how much they are when they come in on UDC UK

                  No its not too flat, stadium feels like a half flattened Naomi which is about as comfortable as you can get...

                  As to how much they will cost, if I remember correctly even the bottom end ones are going to use a similar plastic to the KH zero. However cost is about what the market will bear rather than the production cost, so I would expect it to be in a similar price band to standard KH saddles (roughly £30-40).

                  The base mould is the important ridiculously expensive bit of the saddle and the foam comes after. If the Stadium is successful, we will see more variants to suit different ride styles and price brackets. Unless there is mass dislike or a major issue, I would expect to see this saddle and its variants become stock on all UDC and Nimbus unicycles reducing the per unit R+D cost by selling in bulk rather than as an upgrade.

                    Thanks for the review,Terry.
                    Q: how would you compare the "relief channel" on the Stadium to the KH seat in terms of width and depth?

                      Does it have the same bolt pattern as the KH saddle? In other words: will it fit a KH T-Bar or brake holder?

                        The channel is there, but I'm not sure how effective it is on either saddle.

                        Yes, same bolt pattern.

                          Yes, I agree, but not quite what I was asking...

                            I ordered one yesterday, at Municycle Germany.
                            I will review it soon, and compare it against the Zero and the flattened fusion freeride.

                              Hey Terry, wondering if you're planning on getting the Fusion One saddle as well. I snagged one when they went up, but didn't grab the new nimbus one for comparison. I plan on doing a write up of the zero vs the one, but would be interested to hear how the new nimbus saddle compares to those.
