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.

Creak....creak....creak.... pedaling an M6 out of the saddle

I've had my M6 since April and it has developed a creak when I pedal out of the saddle. I sometimes hear it when I pedal seated, but it usually occurs when I apply a higher amount of pressure to the pedals. Does anyone know how to make it go away?Read More »

Getting back on the saddle

I used to be a fairly avid biker, and very active on mtbr years ago. I was young, no drivers license, no money and not a ton of passion because of not having any amazing talent on a bike resulting In frequent injury:rolleyes: My main interest was downhill which was probably the dumbest thing to do ...

back on the saddle again...

Been a few years since I've ridden... and damn I've misses it too. Had my Cannondale Trail 2 SL 29er hardtail stolen back in 2012. However, the bug never left and bite me good recently, so today I picked up my first FS bike, a 2009 Haro Sonix LT. Has some pretty decent components already installed ... Read More »

How much time do you spend in the saddle during rides?

I'm just curious because as my riding ability increases and I'm able to ride progressively more difficult terrain and trails, I realize I'm spending much less time actually seated in the saddle than previously. Recently I even find myself standing in sections of some of the easier trails that I use ... Read More »
