Strengths:    Great saddle. Stylish looking, light and durable material. It's quite comfortable for a saddle with this profile and relatively low weight. My previous saddle was a WTB Speed V and that thing was less comfortable despite having more padding.

Weaknesses:    Started to creak after few months but this could be partially due to the fact that I had to do couple of mud bath races in this saddle. the rails probably got dirty and now they creak.

Bottom Line:   
Great deal for the money. Why spend $100 for a good saddle when you can have this.

Strengths:    Low weight, high quality stitching, vent

Weaknesses:    Little padding, not quite comfortable enough for 10+ mile rides.

Bottom Line:   
Pretty good seat- if you require some padding, you may look at other options that are close to the same weight, but have more cushion.

Strengths:    It's pretty inexpensive, lightweight, stylish, comfy...

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
For the $ I would have a hard time finding a better saddle. My tain't doesn't hurt anymore and that makes riding more enjoyable. So far I have 2 installed on different bikes (1 ht and 1 fs)and they are perfect.

The most comfortable saddle I've ever used. I ride XC mostly and this saddle is perfect for me.

Date Reviewed: March 18, 2009

Strengths:    Fairly light. Takes pressure off sensitive areas.

Weaknesses:    Creates bad pressure points on my ischial tuberosities.

Bottom Line:   
Decent saddle for the price but it just doesn't fit my anatomy. It creats 2 bad pressure points and I can't stay in the saddle longer than 15 min. before I have to take a break.

Date Reviewed: November 30, 2007

Strengths:    Cost, comfort

Weaknesses:    none so far

Bottom Line:   
For the money, it's the most comfortable saddle I've used to date. And for $20 you can't go wrong. It might not be the lightest saddle around at 240g but it's also not a lead weight. Much lighter than my stock saddle. I like it so much that I've purchased a couple more for my other bikes ( commuter and soon to be Road bike, for triathlons)

xx1 crank & chainring with a zee derailleur for a chainguideless 1x10 setup?

Hey, I'm running SS atm with an XX1 crankset and a Wolftooth chainring. I'd like to go 1x10 for the time being with a Zee derailleur/shifter, my original 32t XX1 chainring and a 11-36 casette. Without chainguide. Would that be a compatible combination?Read More »
