"Tilting" a curved saddle basically just affects which part of the saddle you end up sitting on, since mostly you are sliding the saddle along an arced U-shaped path, not really tilting it. Imagine yourself sitting on the unicycle, not moving, while somebody else slides the seat back and forth under you.

You end up sitting on the bottom of the U. So sliding the seat forward puts your butt on the wider back part of the saddle; sliding it back puts you on a narrower part. A lot of folks prefer the saddle forward so they can sit on the wider part.

Truly flat saddles, especially the KH ones using a pivotal post (or a KH adjustable post), work a little differently since they aren't sliding back and forth along an arc. Then you really do adjust the angle the saddle makes under you.
