I have been riding the SQ Labs seat for a year now and love it. I was having numbness and pain issues on longer rides and did the research into Sit bones and seat design. I ended up measuring my sit bones using cardboard (15) and then measuring a number of seats at shops and in my garage. I found that for me, most seat designs were too narrow, putting pressure on the pudendal nerve, and making life in the saddle a misery. I took the plunge and haven't looked back. It was a big cost (for a seat) with a risk, but the gamble ended up paying off in spades. I legitimately haven't had any issues with comfort or pain since switching. I am running the stock elastomers but might try the soft ones after reading the above just to see if I'm missing something. There is definitely a pocket in the seat design as well as a height difference between the area your sit bones rest on and the nose of the saddle. This is one of the best things I have ever bought on a bike.
