Strengths:    Well built.
Looks good.


Weaknesses:    Uncomfortable

Bottom Line:   
I was in Squamish and needed a seat. It's a local brand so I was stoked on supporting the local business.
Within 1 mile of riding I knew I was in for a miserable day. The seat just did not work well with me. It felt like sitting on a softball. I did most climbs that day standing due to the seat. I adjusted it as many ways as I could, but it just never worked for me. I was super bummed because it is a great looking seat and is very well built. That's $100+ down the drain.

Submitted by Fix the Spade a Weekend Warrior from Loughborough, UK

Date Reviewed: November 3, 2009

Strengths:    Light-ish, narrow, firm padding, strong enough for most uses.

Weaknesses:    Nose up design, some b**ger stole it.

Bottom Line:   
Very nice saddle, so nice that someone stole my first off my bike.

Good for skinny riders as the narrow shape gives great pedalling clearance. Best suited to bikes with steep seat angles as saddle needs to be tilted quite far forwards to sit properly. Dead easy to move around on and hang off the back too.

Firm padding is very comfortable, much better than more padded designs that I tend to sink into and get sore spots (esp, the wtb).

Could do with £10 off the price here in the UK.

Date Reviewed: October 8, 2009

Strengths:    Light, thin profile WIDE!!!!

Weaknesses:    a little stiff at first but im getting used to it, my seat before was a really cushy wtb, don't think it was the best for me, so i got this.

Bottom Line:   
awsome seat, ordered a chromag trailmaster and down cycles was out so they upgraded me to a linx titanium for no extra charge. i was ridding on a wtb saddle that i had borrowed and it was big and really cushy and thick, it felt alright but i think there is something to be said about having a stiffer saddle. i'm getting used to the stifness but the saddle front is wide and not skinny which i like, the back half is narrower than the wtb but it gives better support, it is so much slimmer in width thgan the wtb i love it. the leather top is a plus too. Order your stuff from Down Cylcles, they have the best service imaginable it got to me the day after i finalized the order. great shop. awsome seat chromag!!! love being able to move around it with out catching on it.

One for lynx, RIP9 content.

I`ve read quite a few posts where Mr,Lynx points out that the Rip9 has steep angles. I`ve also been told off for fiting Stans ZTR 355`s and Racing Ralphs... Mr. Copperfield can also watch and learn. :D Oh man, I love this bike! Read More »
