Strengths:    Comfort. Well priced.

Weaknesses:    None to date.

Bottom Line:   
I love this saddle. I have not been using for very long but it is a giant step up from the stock saddle that came with my bike. I am 6'2" and 200+ lbs and this saddle is extremely comfortable. Add that in with the fact that the item is only $25.00 and it can't be beat.

Date Reviewed: April 8, 2009

Strengths:    PLUSH... Most comfy saddle that I have ever used. Feels like a La-z-boy on a bike.

Weaknesses:    Prints on the saddle peel off within the first few days of use. Covering looks fragile -- although mine is still far from disintegrating.

Bottom Line:   
Have a tender ass? Get this saddle. You won't regret it.

Date Reviewed: October 14, 2007

Strengths:    extremely comfortable

Weaknesses:    confirm other review - the covering. but the bike store orders me a new cover for $5 every 18 or 24 months.

Bottom Line:   
i can actually use my bike for long rides without fear and apprehension. to the devil with those worthless seats from the underworld, along with the memories.

this is an excellent seat. expect the stock cover to disintegrate after a year or two of use. no worries, just order a new cover. could be the newer models have a durable cover, i couldn't tell you as i'm not planning on replacing this seat any time soon.

Date Reviewed: November 5, 2006

Strengths:    Comfortable, Cheap

Weaknesses:    Could use a tougher cover. I'm lucky to not have ripped the lycra yet.

Bottom Line:   
Great seat if you're on a budget. Really comfortable for the price. It's not the slickest thing out on the trails, but it gets the job done. My only complaint is the lycra/spandex covering. I feel like I should be overly cautious about letting it get wet or ripping the cover on one of those unexpected meetings with branches and thorns.

Submitted by Michael Halliwell a Cross Country Rider from Alberta, Canada

Date Reviewed: January 1, 2006

Strengths:    comfortable for the long rides, wider saddle, good quality

Weaknesses:    little heavy (if you're concerned about weight), style (not as chic as a racing seat)

Bottom Line:   
As a bigger guy, I find racing style seats can be a real pain in the rear during or after long rides. I mean really, a 6' tall 200+ lb guy is going to wear a 5" wide racing seat like a hard plastic thong after a decent ride.

At 7" wide and with a gel top, this seat is a lot more comfortable. It narrows to a decent nose so that you can still handle the technical stuff but provides excellent support and padding for other parts of the anatomy for when you're just riding around town.

It may not be as sexy as a racing seat, but it is comfy and doesn't interfere when you're on your favorite trail. Add to that the fact, as another reviewer stated, it "protects future generations" and it's a pretty darn good saddle.

Strengths:    Soft and comfortable.

Bottom Line:   
I really like this seat. Riding an extra 10 miles now is much easier as my prior seat would beat me to death or I'd end up standing up most of the time. Makes the nice coastal rides much more enjoyable now. Gel works great.

Strengths:    Soft. Feels like sitting in a Cadillac when riding. Big difference from my expensive 'racing' seat. Screw that, I don't race, I want to be comfortable enough to go the distance - this seat does if for me.

Weaknesses:    ????

Bottom Line:   
Fantastic. Screw that skinny cardboard shi#. I like to be comfortable as I trek and this seat makes the difference.

Date Reviewed: July 28, 2004

Strengths:    Lycra, semi comfortable

Weaknesses:    steel raillings, butt gets tense

Bottom Line:   
I got this seat as a gift. I think this seat was good, not great but pretty good. At first I found it very comfortable for I was using a road seat. Then after I got used to it my rear still felt a bit tense(like when you stretch it). It wasn't complete pain but agravating. Luckily that sensation goes away as I stand.

Date Reviewed: May 3, 2003

Strengths:    Cost. Compare other saddles at $50. Comfort. Very comfortable for long rides, a blessing to my butt after a Coda 900 'racing' seat. Company. Serfas is well known and produces excellent products. Groove. The Groove, acts like a split to reduce numbness, added comfort, and protects important items *cough*. Most newer saddles are designed this way for a reason. Older 'classic' saddles can be dangerous to your future offspring they say... So, yes, great grooves. Did I mention the price? Go to Freewheelin, they are good people.
Recommended by other users.


Weaknesses:    A little big, but its trade off is comfort. Not the 'coolest' looking seat out, but who is looking underneath your butt anyway? Plus for the cost, I think it looks great!

Bottom Line:   
Excellent product. When you consider the price, its a smart buy. Highly recommended to frugal riders seeking comfort versus style.
