    Strengths:    Light, Looks Good

    Weaknesses:    Hard to find a comfortable position

    Bottom Line:   
    Very light and works great once you find a comfortable position for it. I found that even changing the angle by a few degrees changed the saddle from unbearable to unnoticeable. It is a great saddle, but you have to find the right spot.

    Strengths:    Confortable and durable, Easy to get back forward because of wedge shaped back

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   

    I've tried most of the top end saddles and have them hanging on my garage wall (I always give a saddle at least 5 rides before forming an opinion unless it's really bad). While I have no passion for Canondale products in general, this is a big exception. By sliding aft slightly you can change the pressure points entriely--handy on long rides. This is a function of the "swayback" design.

    I used to buy the Coda 1000's and while they were just as comfortable, they were not as durable.

    All of the Coda saddles are easy move behind and back forward because of the design.

    If you ride more than a couple of times a month on technical terrain, this is the saddle.

    Strengths:    Durable, comfortable

    Weaknesses:    Paint chips on rails

    Bottom Line:   
    I was so pleased with the comfort and appearance of my first one of these that I brought a second.

    I use them on my street bike and off-road machine. No problems yet except that paint chips off from the rails when tightening the seat post clamp.

    Strengths:    You think that it would be nice considering the 'premium leather' and titanium rails.

    Weaknesses:    Well, it has good materials, but it was incredibly uncomfortable for me. Even after 5 minutes of riding, I wanted off.

    Bottom Line:   
    This saddle might be good for you, but after I rode this the first couple of times I felt like I had been kicked. May be best to do a trade up before you take the bike out of the store
