MAX S5 Superflow. Maximum comfort, always!
The MAX S5 Superflow is the short saddle that allows you to maximize pedaling comfort in any situation. Its “waved” shape makes it possible to immediately find the ideal seating point and thus to maximize performance. The Gel inserted inside the padding contributes, together with the central Superflow hole for releasing pressure from the perineal area, to further maximize the feeling of comfort. The Hi-Viz inserts on the back also ensure visibility and safety even at night.

For those with 10+ cm sit bones, S5 Superflow is a comfortable seat. While not the lightest saddle, the material and the padding made it slightly heavier than my other saddle (Triban 120 stock saddle), it's scores on comfort. Haven't tried it on century plus rides yet, but 60-70 k rides have been comfortable.
I was having saddle sores with original giant saddle. So I was looking for a very wide, gel padded and with a wide cut in between saddle. I came across this saddle which is 182 mm wide and found it to be excellent. It has reduced my problem of saddle sores considerably. If you are long distance rider, you may go for it. Recently I have ridden almost 6 hrs. continuously in the saddle with no problems. However please note that saddle position, height, your padded shorts quality and design and your seating posture also plays a very important role in minimizing saddle sores.
