Strengths:    Looks great, leather surface breathes.

Weaknesses:    Sitting shape is not for everyone, I would say the Thoork intended for road bike, not for MTB.

Bottom Line:   
I was disappointed in feeling this saddle on FS bike. Gel padding does not help, saddle is being feel hard. Rear carbon inserts are dangerously. Oscillation system does not turn at all while rider pedals!
I have a Selle Italia Signo with this system where it works fine. Also Signo is usable on MTB, Thoork usable only on road bike.

Strengths:    Well made, quite light, does what its supposed to

Weaknesses:    sharp pointy edges

Bottom Line:   
I tested tis saddle and found it very good. It flexes in the back end as it is designed to do and makes for quite a comfortable saddle. The cut out and gel flow definitley helps to eliviate the numb C**K feeling that some saddles give.
Only down side and reason I am not puchasing it is that the cut out at the back creates two pointy bits that snag your shorts alot and really hurt if you catch them in a crash !! Not good for a cross country / all mountain set up.
