2022 Trek FX 2 saddle

I just surprised my wife with a 20022 FX2 and while looking it over at home I noticed it did not come with a Bontrager Sport saddle but a DDK Pro Active saddle. It has a sticker on it QC.37. I realize because of the bike/parts shortage that some bikes are being sold with other than the listed components. Does anyone know if this is a good brand and how does it compare to Bontrager? I could not find this saddle on the DDK website.

Don't have experience with either, but here are some DDK saddles--any of these what is on the bike? ddk pro active saddle - Bing images
Does she like the saddle which is on the bike? That is what is important.

Thanks for the link. It is none of those though. It also seems to be of decent quality. She has not tried it yet except for sitting on it. The weather here has been brutal and the couple of times it did warm up without rain we were working. Right now its Saturday and 32 degrees with wind and freezing rain. Lol🙄

I wouldn't say that Bontrager-branded saddles (which are subcontracted from another supplier anyway) aren't intrinsically better or worse than any other. What really matter is comfort for the rider. If the DDK-branded saddle is not comfortable, then I'd probably just shop around for one that is comfortable (just as you'd do if she didn't like the Bontrager).

Agreed

I absolutely hated the Bontrager Sport on my FX1 when I first got it, but now I'm used to it, but that said, I'm looking to change to a Bontrager Boulevard which is much wider at the back. You could go to a local bike shop to see if you can figure the width of her sit bones and then find a saddle more inline with her measurements.

Depends what she likes. I'm using the Bongtrager Boulevard saddle and that one is ok.

I had a Schwinn Cruiser Saddle on my previous bike and that one was great.
