Which version would be the most comfortable?

There are three different profiles: flat, shallow and radius. They vary on the “nose” orientation. The best qualified in bike magazines is RADIUS. You can also choose rail construction materials (aluminum, titanium, or carbon).
I tried first a cheaper aluminum version of the radius profile and I loved it, so after I decided to purchase the elite (carbon) version

Does the saddle make noise when ridding ?

I have not noticed the saddle making any noise.

which is best for gravel?cross/touring? flat? shallow? or radius?

I have the radius on my mountain bike and really love it. I have seen where both the flat and the radius are the best for mountain bikes. The radius has a little more padding than the flat. If you’re on the bigger side I would go with the radius.
