Specialized's Avatar Team Saddle is perfect for grinding out the miles thanks to its unprecedented comfort and durability. Specialized's Body Geometry technology takes the pressure off sensitive areas with a cutout, center channel and padding in all the right places. Plus, the Avatar boasts a carbon-reinforced shell, lightweight chromoly rails and weather-resistant Micromatrix top, too.

Strengths: Looks, weight, good support, just the right amount of padding & flex for me. I tested a lot of the specialized seats before I settle on this seat. Specialized has a great test ride program so if your unsure go test ride it.
Weaknesses: None so far.
If you want a great seat that it's light, provides good support & flex with just the right amount of padding check this seat out. The phenom was to hard for my liking but a lot of my riding buddies think it's the bomb.
Bottom line: I like this seat and highly recommend trying it. Specialized has a great test program so get out and test one for yourself. Msrp is steep for this seat but they have the comp series with a very reasonable msrp.
