Strengths:    - Comfort
- Weight
- Looks
- Strength
- Padding on the nose for climbing

Weaknesses:    - I wish the rear of the saddle came up a little higher

Bottom Line:   
Overall a tough saddle to beat if your looking for all day comfort at competitive price, weight and strength. I would highly recommend trying Bontrager's 30 day return policy.

Strengths:    Lightweight, Very comfortable, good looking

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
I've struggled to find saddles that felt right in the past. I went to the lbs and they highly recommended this saddle. I decided to give it a shot and I've been very pleased. It offers little padding but I never go numb and stay comfortable even on long rides. I think that the inform sizing system is a great idea and really works.

Strengths:    Comfort (have not tried for more than 3 hours), light weight

Weaknesses:    none that I can tell.

Bottom Line:   
I always found my Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow pretty comfortable, but it doesn't even compare to this saddle. I get no pain at all, no numbness, no pain on my sit bones, nothing.

Strengths:    Comfortable, strong, light and looks cool

Weaknesses:    Maybe the price but thats it!

Bottom Line:   
I have this saddle on all 3 bikes mentioned above. I absolutely LOVE this saddle. Perfect amount of padding....not too much and not too little! Yea its not one of those 150 gram saddles but its still under 200g and WAY more comfortable and still very effecient! The cool thing is that Bontrager lets you try one and return it within 30 days if you don't like it! That's a big reason I tried this saddle (that I was not familiar with). I figured I couldn't go wrong...and I ended up buying 2 more!

Tested a friend's new similar seat before buying mine from Penn Cycles (on closeout, will post in Deals section soon). edit: just sold out at $6 ... Read More »

Seat Post for Bontrager Evoke RXL Carbon Saddle

I am trying to find the correct Bontrager RXXXL seatpost for my 2012 Evoke saddle with the tall, 9mm carbon rails. I am told Bontrager makes a carbon-specific, one-bolt side clamp that facilitates correct clamping pressure on the carbon rails. But, I am getting lots of conflicting info from eBay sel ...
