Strengths:    Looks good. Probably pretty light

Weaknesses:    Scuff guard on the sides tears up my inner thighs when ape-hanging off the back

Bottom Line:   
With so many good saddles out there this has a fatal flaw. My old Spec Forma is the same width but has better fabric for the scuff guard.

Strengths:    Looks great, comfortable for all day all mountain riding, stiff, relatively light

Weaknesses:    Not sure if these are ever going to hold up to any kind of get-off.

Bottom Line:   
I love the way this seat rides, but I have purchased 2 of them in 1 month and broke both of them on really easy get-offs. First one the cover tore and the shell cracked. The other one the rail popped out of the shell and I spent 30 minutes prying that sucker back in and riding 15 miles out on a bent saddle. I am going to try and warranty the second one, but i am starting to feel a little weary about this seat.

My old cheap Spesh Rival SL seat was one my bike for 3 years through all kinds of drama and never had an issue. I just needed something that would stand up to longer rides...
