Strengths:    I have one of the yellow saddles like in the piture above. Very light, great colours, kevlar side means it doesn't get scraped....and best of all the sewn-in image of Extralite girl. Always gets noticed.

Weaknesses:    Ouch!

I spent nearly 12 months trying to get used to the saddle but had to give it up for a Sella Italia Flite Trans Am.

I could comfortably sit on the saddle for about 2 hours any more than that and it was starting to get painfull.

If you like hard saddles and you are only intending to do short rides then this may work for you but if you intend an all day outing, be warned. It could be painful.


Bottom Line:   
Wait for the new Extralite saddle later this year. It's a re-branded Sella Italia (so Extralite told me)

Strengths:    Kevlar sides prevent scraps or cuts in seat.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I would say this in the only Extralite component you could skip on and find something of personal preference or lighter weight. There are lighter seats like the Tune but they do not have the cool stripper girl logo like the Extralite. The seat is firm but the shape has grown on me. The kevlar sides are GREAT and will not where if you lean the bike up against something rough like stucco walls. The price is also pretty good value. On cool and value it gets fives stars...personal choice/racing seat I overall this at a four stars.

Best Saddle for the Front Range?

just kidding. But seriously, my ass hurts. Whenever I spend a long time in the saddle on some long uphill grind, my taint hurts. I know that saddles are a personal thing, but there is some science to it, right? Like how the saddle lines up with your sit bones or something? Are there shops tha ... Read More »

I randomly bought this seat on ebay and for whatever reason it fits my large heavy rear end like a damn Barcalounger. I've been looking for another on and searching as best I can but I've come up with zero as far a an OEM web site or anything that might point me in the right direction. Any ideas? ... Read More »

How to choose the appropriate saddle??

I have been riding 10 miles everyday and the biggest obstacle to overcome is a pain in my ass.... (literally) After only 3 miles or so my ass beggins to ache and only gets worse the longer I go. I dont ride a actual road bike but a hardtail xc 29er with a fork lockout and I use appropriate padded cy ... Read More »
