Strengths:    Looks nice

Weaknesses:    Ouch! Feels like cardboard - $65???

Bottom Line:   
I weigh 180, 5'10", and little fat. My last seat is the Specialized Body Geometry Comp, which I have used for like the past 10 yrs. (I still have it on my old steed). I love that seat. Very comfortable. I rode 1 mile with this seat and thought 'holy crap, this is painful'. A**bones and perineum were not having it. After reading the reviews here, I decided on the WTB. Aaaaaaah. That's more like it!!

Strengths:    Good looks, light weight, reasonable price

Weaknesses:    Seat pan is very, very weak...It cracked at the nose of the saddle!

Bottom Line:   
I purchased this seat based on the strengths listed above. Turns out the low weight is obtained by Syncros spec'ing a very cheap seat pan that failed on the second test ride of my bike I just built up. The seat pan cracked in half at the nose of the saddle just aft of where the rails are secured to the pan. I could not believe my eyes when, during a parking lot test ride, the entire pan and padding of my saddle fell off and I was left with nothing but rails to sit on.

I would not recommend this product to anyone unless they WANT TO be disappointed.

Strengths:    Comfort

Weaknesses:    Small amount of play around rails.

Bottom Line:   
Great seat. Very comfortable. The weight is also nice. Only have about 15 rides on it, but so far no complaints. Out of the box it had a bit of play/movement which did not inspire confidence, but there were no issues and it doesn't make any noise. Would buy again.
