Strengths:    Great saddle for long travel bike. Feels great going up and down. The first saddle able to replace my Flite - and I have tried many.

Weaknesses:    There are two versions of this saddle. The lighter one claims to have a black leader cover. This "leather" appears to have zero resistance towards actual use, i.e., sitting on the saddle. After less than 10 rides the leather is disintegrating at the nose! Is this thing made out of paper? It took YEARS of riding with the Flite to get any show of wear even remotely like this? This is plain crazy. This product is expensive, but even a cheaper product should not develop this kind of wear. Perhaps the other version of the saddle is better.

Bottom Line:   
Nice ergonomics, terribly cheap materials (leather version). Do not buy!

Strengths:    The back flex very good, it does great job absorbing in the rocky/downhill terrain and very comfy. Love it to go uphill, doesn't limit your leg movement. Love the saddle grab.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
For downhill and freeride, this is it, Zeak the best. I'm still swapping with the Gobi for trail ride, once I'm use to Zeak I'll probably keep it on my Prophet and use Gobi for my Marin Wolf Ridge.
