Lightweight, supple, narrow, flexible

It can be bouncy on continuous rocky terrain

Bottom Line:   
This is a very comfortable saddle once gotten used to it. It is flexible so it can swallow small bumps thanks to its elastomers and frame design. Narrow for easy shifts backward on descents and it has a very nice embridered pattern (a snake) adding to the overall coolness of my ride. On the flip side its flexibility, which adds to comfort, can actually casue a boncy (bobbing?) ride on sustained small/midsize rocks, bumps, etc. I guess it is somewhat similar to shock seatposts in that respect. The best saddle i have tride so far. I will buy it for my road bike as well. I would give it five chilies if it had not been for the occasional bouncing

My daughter is a pretty short 7 year old but her 16" bike is looking real small for her now. So we're looking to put them both on 20's. I also ha ... Read More »

SB 95 turning radius

Been on a large about three months now and I love it. Coming off a fisher paragon and have gotten used to the wider bars. Climbs better on the loose and technical and no comparison on the descent. One thing I am having a hard time with are climbing turns and switchbacks. Not sure if it is the shor ... Read More »
