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.
