Strengths:    cheap and very light for the money (190grams or so )
leather cover and magnesium rails
reflective logo on the back along with bash protection at rear and nose

Weaknesses:    pretty narrow - you need to break YOUR BEHIND into the saddle - not the other way round !!!
kinda flexy too
leather cover on mine has started to peel

Bottom Line:   
OK if yer an XC freak or never sit down

otherwise beware this saddle is a real razorblade

Strengths:    makes a great trials bike seat.
i.e don't sit down on it

Weaknesses:    The nastiest seat in the world(tm)
how do you top that?

Bottom Line:   
I had this seat on my HT when i bought it.I thought it looked cool so i kept using it.

Major Mistake.

It had no nacho area support, the rails bent easily and the cover is very slippery even when dry.It hurts so much more to ride with this seat than any other i've ever used.

I guess the fact i put this seat on my trials bike sums up my opinion of it. I don't sit down much when i ride trials so this seat is perfect.Plus if i have to bail i don't care if my seat gets trashed.

Overall:DO NOT BUY THIS SEAT, unless you ride trials or just don't care about having children. I have never been more disapointed with a product... ever

Slim saddle, great for pedaling. Light, I guess.
Tough woven cover.

Very hard. Needs some padding

Bottom Line:   
This is a cool saddle if it had some padding. If you're a XC litespeed hartail kind of rider, this is a good seat. If you like to go down hills more, get something with some padding.
