The R2 certainly, but so would the Brooks C17 and C17A cutout "vegan" saddles, which do not need breaking in - fairly firm and comfortable to start, fairly firm and comfortable for years.

I like the R2 so far, but it has a couple quirks:
  1. The parts rattled at first, until I disassembled, greased the contact points, and reassembled - all quiet now.
  2. I rode in a heavy rain, and the black neoprene left a dark pool on the bottom of my yellow rain paints - haven't tried to wash out yet.
I love the look and feel however, looking forward to a long relationship.
