Product Description

The Selle SMP Strike Carbon saddle is designed from extensive studies conducted which analyzed the different positions assumed by a cyclist in the various phases of a ride and the constant interaction between the body and the saddle. Based on these findings, Selle SMP designed the STRIKE saddle which prevents the cyclist’s sensitive areas from getting squashed and increases the blood flow to the leg muscles.

Strengths:    Durable, Light, nice fit for smaller women, It's a beauty

Weaknesses:    Price

Bottom Line:   
Great Saddle . Am female 110lbs, 5'4 and this saddle fits like a dream. I've been through several saddles trying to find the "Perfect " fit and this one is it. Ladies, if your of a smaller stature ( narrow pelvic ) you will most likely love this saddle. I was skeptical at first, but took the dive and bought it anyway. So happy I did.

Strengths:    Comfortable,no bladder infections,stands up to the wet and muddy mountain biking I do here in the Pacific North West

Weaknesses:    price, It took a little longer to get adjusted to the right angle.

Bottom Line:   
It took a leap of faith to buy this saddle. I was looking for a light, high end saddle that would stand up to the rain and mud here in the Pacific NW. Most decent saddles have leather tops that get ground away by the mud and grit that sticks to my short from the back wheel. I also ride a lot and I'm prone to bladder infections, so I liked the center cut out. I have used the Koobi saddles that also have the cut out, and this prevent bladder infections. This is a pricey saddle but I will be buying another and sticking with selle SMP

This is the most comfortable saddle I have yet to use.

Strengths:    Amazingly comfortable after hours and hours. I am not sure sure how it is possible when the seat is hard as a rock but it is the most comfortable saddle I have ever had bar none. I have the full carbon zero padding version on my tandem and the titanium rail, zero padding version on my road racing bike.

Weaknesses:    Expensive!

Bottom Line:   
The full carbon SMP saddle is the lightest and best money can buy. It gets more comfortable after every hour you ride.

Actually PREFER aluminum wheels vs. carbon?

Hmmmm - for the heck of it, I threw back on the wheel set that came with my Pivot Mach 429 Carbon. The wheels are DTSwiss XR400 with DTSwiss 350 hubs. Tires were Hans Dampf front, and Racing Ralph rear, run tubeless, and inflated to 25 front, 30 rear. Weight with tires about 1440 grams. I have two ... Read More »

Frame dead? Cannondale Flash Carbon.

I have had some really bad creaking noise coming from what I believe is the bottom bracket. I have taken the crank off twice, torqued and greased everything. Still creaks. I heard from another thread that this could mean my derailleur hanger is loose, saddle loose, frame cracked, or, among other th ... Read More »

Cracked Carbon Fiber Wheel

Riding Downieville yesterday I cracked my carbon fiber rear wheel at the beginning of the 1st divide. After replacing some burped air the wheel held up for the rest of the ride but I kept about 35lbs of air in it to hold the seal. Question is, can CF wheels be repaired? is it one and done?Read More »
