Strengths:    Light, surprisingly comfortable, good for descending and climbing

Weaknesses:    Price

Bottom Line:   
Personally I can't see how any saddle can cost more than usd $20 to make and distribute if made in China $30 rest of Asia and $50 in Europe. This is shown by other manufacturers who can make and sell saddles for these prices.

The Fizik Tundra 2 is a perfectly good saddle if the price was reasonable, however it's too expensive for a MTB saddle so it makes riders hypercritical of the saddles.

I bought this saddle as a yellow TEST saddle for a very reasonable $50 so I have the luxury of reviewing this as if it were a normal priced saddle.

I have been pretty impressed, the saddle is very comfortable, but with all Fizik saddles you need to be really careful about setup angle, get it wrong and this saddle will hurt you badly on long rides, get it right and saddle is fine. I weigh about 200 lbs
not a squeak over the year I've had it, straight rails nice size good for ascents and descents.

I'd buy one again, but my price is $60 max. No way would I ever pay $160, not matter how good it is.

Strengths:    Light, nice design

Weaknesses:    Middle part is too wide. Cover material started to develop wrinkles after first 300 km.

Bottom Line:   
Got this saddle with stock Canondale Scalpel 29'er. At the beginning I was impressed - nice design, lightweight. However good impressions weared of after first week. Saddle form is of course discussable - maybe it's just not for me, but all the other fellow riders had also impression that middle part to wide. And covering material started to wrinkle - this was full stop. Returned back to my WTB saddle and happy since then.

Strengths:    - Comfortable and lightweight XC saddle
- Looks great

Weaknesses:    - Covering is bit thin and not as durable as other saddles I've owned
- The flat nose can be "grabby"

Bottom Line:   
Got to ride one of these during a Giant demo about a year ago. On first look, I thought, "this is going to hurt," but I was thoroughly impressed with the comfort and decided to get one for my new ride. The T2 is definitely more of a XC race type saddle since it's pretty light and the covering thin. I've had a few minor diggers with it and it scars easily, but seems to be holding up pretty well so far...just not as good as others I've had. My only true gripe is the design of the nose. With it being so flat and "spade-like," it has grabbed and ripped a couple of holes in my shorts during transitions across the saddle. Overall, a good saddle that I would probably buy again if I see it on sale, but watch out for that bitey nose!

Strengths:    This saddle came on a used Surly Karate Monkey (no suspension single speed 29er) I bought 9 months ago. I took one look at this saddle, and thought, that's not going to be comfy! Well, I was pleasantly amazed and surprised to find that it is a very comfortable saddle. I do get that forward numbness problem on longer rides, but I haven't decided to swap it out.

Weaknesses:    This saddle has a street price of $150 c. 5/12. I would never buy this saddle at that price, but it came with the bike. I'm not counting grams on my bike (which weighs 28.6 lb dry), and I carry up to 3.5L of water when I go on long rides in 95-105 degrees (=an extra 3500 g). When I buy a new saddle for a bike (road, hybrid, or mountain bike) it's a sub-$100 V-type saddle.

Bottom Line:   
A cool-looking saddle for the weight-conscious. The rest of us should probably skip it.
