Strengths:    Seems like a great seat. It stays out of your is light weight, strong rails, looks fantastic

Weaknesses:    Not made to be a fluffy

Bottom Line:   
This seat is made for XC riding and racing. If your looking for comfort that is secondary only to your Lazy Boy, this is not it. However, if you are a serious XC rider who wants a seat that stays out of your way and dosn't rub you raw, this is the real deal. It is fantastic on Full Suspension. Not sure I would want it on a hard tail.

Strengths:    Not too expensive, and looks good.

Weaknesses:    The fact that it's broke

Bottom Line:   
Seat looks great. Slim and lightweight. I was planning to buy a gel cover for it this weekend (good thing I decided to wait). Even with the gel in the seat, it was still hard on the keister. Today I went over a couple of drops, and almost pulled the rails out of the saddle's nose and bent one of them. It would be a hazard to keep it on the bike now. I wouldn't get this seat if your a clydsedale that likes to play hard.
