This is a matter of opinion. In terms of cost, quality and position in the product line, the Ideale 90 corresponded to the Brooks Pro. Many Peugeot PX-10s sold in the US came with Brooks Pro, for example, while PX-10s sold in Europe typically came with the Ideale 90.

However, some people will report a large difference in comfort between these two saddles, claiming that one feels great to them, while they never could get comfortable on the other. Personally, these two saddles feel very similar to me. I can easily ride 50 miles on one of them one day and the same distance on the other the next. The comfort of one's backside is obviously a highly personalized matter.

If I fit well on a Brooks (Team) Pro, but I want to put an Ideale saddle on a constructeur-phile project bike, what Ideale model should I track down?

Thanks very much!
