RE: [RC] saddle twist - Alison Farrin

Which is why sitting in a Mcclellan drives me nuts. One of the ischial spines is right on the inside opening and slips off the saddle tree al the time.  Are guys more comfortable in these because both their ischial spines sit inside the tree?

The bony pelvis of a male is different from female. Ischial spines are closer together.
A narrow twist might work better for a male. There are always differences within the gender as well..Generally speaking males have a narrower pelvis and women a wider pelvis. One of the obvious spots is in the ischial spines and that is right where you sit

On the opposite side of twist width is my problem.  Too narrow a twist will cause severe and painful rubbing in the crotch, but a slightly wider twist will allow the pressure to be on the outside points of the pelvis.  I guess each person has his own anatomical issues.

Robert. Here is a site that tells a bit about what the twist is. My husband is more comfortable in a saddle with a narrow twist, as it does not spread his pelvis as much, and then in turn, he does not have knee pain. We would have never thought knee pain could be associated with how wide the saddle is to the rider, but once he got a narrow twist, the pain was greatly reduced.
