Strengths:    Light, fits my rear end really well, looks good, durable

Weaknesses:    Based on other people's reviews, I guess it doesn't some other people's rear ends that well...

Bottom Line:   
I've had this seat on my commuter bike for a while and it's great. It hasn't ripped, the rails haven't bent, It's really supportive, and it looks good.

Strengths:    Light, comfortable, durable

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Love this saddle. Very comfortable and very light. Much more padding than similar saddles in this weight range. I've ridden it for 6 hours straight no issues. When wearing regular pants w/o padding it can make you sore though. Overall though a great saddle.

Strengths:    Looks, Weight

Weaknesses:    Comfort

Bottom Line:   
I was building my trek and wanted to keep the specs as closely to the retail version as possible. I bought this saddle because of the looks and weight and I knew the saddle was not comfortable after reading some reviews. After riding this for 6+ months now, I am looking for a new saddle. If you do long rides/climbs, I wouldn't suggest this one. Padding is very minimal. It really gets up into the bone and feels sore after a while. I just can't get used to it.
