Submitted by Bober a Cross Country Rider from Ann Arbor

Date Reviewed: August 2, 2010

Strengths:    Light weight and low price

Weaknesses:    No padding/gel and narrow nose make it extremely hard on your sitting bone area if you are using it on a single-track trail on a regular basis.

Bottom Line:   
Maybe a good saddle for road biking but not for MTB, since even padded shorts will not help you to make it less painful. Also release cut-out is useless when you are riding it with padded shorts, it does not cool anything.

Strengths:    Very Light, Great Looking, Extremely comfortable

Weaknesses:    No flashy factor. Because it's the house brand for Price Point no one's going to WOW over this seat...but It's cheap and feels great. I have had some expensive seats in the past from Selle Italia and San Marco and this feels even better then those for a fraction of the price too!

Bottom Line:   
You can't beat this price or value. The other thing I love about it is because it's so cheap I really am not too upset about bombing through singletrack and getting it dirty. I used to feel like I needed to protect my expensive seats. BUT I'll probably buy a couple more to throw on my other bikes because I love it so much. Also please note I'm a pretty skinny guy. I'm 6 feet tall and weigh 145. SO realize it's comfortable for me but it is a narrow seat.

Date Reviewed: May 20, 2007

Strengths:    Light weight, mines weigh 217 grams. Smooth surface good to move forward and aft easily. Looks like a race saddle costing much more.

Weaknesses:    Not too comfort for long rides, but good if you wear chamois. Padding is thin, butt gets numb on long rides.

Bottom Line:   
Very good for XC racing, light weight for the money, has cut in middle for cooling and relief. If you wear chamois this saddle is comfortable. Rode 4 plus hours on 5 Boro bike tour in NYC, 45 miles. I'm a 150 lb rider. Also some might find this saddle narrow at 132mm width. Got use to it after 3 months of constant riding. For $30.00 it is worth to try.
