Strengths:    Lighter than freeride/DH saddles and softer than XC saddles
Kevlar sides
Good width
Very comfortable

Weaknesses:    Haven't found any yet.. heavier than a uni seat for trials I suppose, but I have to travel on my bike

Bottom Line:   
This is a great seat. Not too expensive, not too heavy, the kevlar holds up in nasty concrete crashes, and it's very comfy. I don't know about the rail strength issues mentioned in the review below, because I don't land on mine.

Good place for your butt. Get one.

Strengths:    Looks alright, and the material on the sides holds up very well and doesn't scuff

Weaknesses:    Weak rails. I snapped mine after landing only a little hard on one side. The whole thing bent backwards and sideways, and then the front snappped downwards, this broke any plastic that was under there.

Bottom Line:   
This is a good seat. It holds up quite well, but does finally brake, after a dodgy landings. Quite comfortable, and considering it is much cheaper than the X-lite and exactly the same it can't be bad.

Magura Louise FR brake pads - Bikefridge Kevlar

I need to stock up on more pads for my multi-sets of Louise FR's and I noticed Bikefridge's regular pads were well liked (from threads several years old). He has another compound - Kevlar - that I haven't been able to find any feedback on. Has anyone used these and can speak to how they perform?Read More »

Carbon-Kevlar composite Podium

well....sort of. It has a composite downtube protector consisting of alternating layers of kevlar and carbon fiber, with an outer Sorbothane energy absorbing layer and carbon fiber shell. Even with all that it doesn't weight too much. I still have to convert to tubeless (DH tubes) and a few other ch ... Read More »
