The most comfortable seat I've ever ridden is the Brooks C17, and by a very long shot. Seats are personal preference, I have friends who hate Brooks saddles, and I hate the ones they ride, etc.My sense over time is that the popularity of the racers teeny tiny skinny seat is the same phenomena as guitar players hearing with our eyes.
That is a big seat but wonens seats are wider fitment.
My visual I cant let go of is the old time flat bars, I see the curvy modern mtb bars as too similar to old time kids bikes while flat bars cut narrow is cool.
Less comfortable though...
