Strengths:    Looks cool, small and keeps out of your way on descents and jumps.

Weaknesses:    Rails bend over time, clearly a cheaply made saddle.

Bottom Line:   
This saddle is made in China by a company that makes millions of saddles (Velo). They put even less effort into this lump of garbage than they do their own. I've used a few of their own saddles, they are cheaper, yet far superior to this abortion. If I spend money on a saddle from a 'proper' manufacturer designed for one of the toughest disciplines dirt jumping, I expect better. Maybe the think I'll just slam the saddle and ride standing up, but what if I ride urban and sit on it for a wheelie or two? This saddle's rails will bend for anyone over 180 pounds, even if you used it for XC. Before the rails bent it was averagely comfortable. It's a sad sad shame because the design and marketing department are top of the game.

SDG and Crank brothers must be fighting it out to see who can be kinda like the EA games of mountain biking. Save your money and spend it on Brooks or Fizik or someone who actually knows how to make a saddle properly.
