Strengths:    lightweight, good dimensions, comfortable

Bottom Line:   
I got a new take-off saddle cheap on ebay. It is quite comfortable and the shape suits me well. It is more comfy than my Aspide and Phenom. I have only 1 ride on it so far but am impressed. I would hate to pay retail for this

Strengths:    Weight, comfort, looks

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
My Flite finally wore out after 8 years. My LBS recommended the Formula FXR. I tried it on a four day trip to Flagstaff. I did rides of 3 to 5 hours during the trip; climbing, swoopy single track, downhill, rocks, roots, etc. The saddle was great from the start. No getting used to it, no sore spots, no breaking in period. Full price is a little high, but is your arse worth it? Mine is.
