Strengths:    Super comfortable; not too soft, not too hard, just right. Terry saddles are very well constructed, made of excellent quality materials, have never had one problem with any of my 3 Terry saddles (Liberator Ti-Race, Liberator Y, Liberator Y Gel).

Weaknesses:    Could be a little lighter, but given all the comfort, durability, value, and overall design quality and appearance, this "complain" is moot.

Bottom Line:   
As reported above, I own 3 Terry saddles, and all have been top notch. The Liberator Ti-Race is nice and light, but unfortunately Terry has apparently stopped manufacturing this saddle. No problem, however, because the other 2 Liberators that I own are fantastic and offer even more all-day riding comfort than the Ti-Race.

Strengths:    Comfortable for a fairly large man
Lasts forever


Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I have used this saddle for years. I am 6'2" 220 lbs. I tried various saddles long ago, including a much vaunted Brooks and a highly rated Koobi Au Enduro, both still collecting dust in my garage. I ride time after time and never think of my seat. Year after year. Same saddle on the third bike. Probably 10 years or so worth of use, maybe more. Looks pretty beat up on my Santa Cruz Tall Boy, but I wouldn't change it. The best saddle is the one you never think about.

Strengths:    For a big guy this seat is the most solid seat I've used.

Weaknesses:    This seat will take some time to get used to.

Bottom Line:   
This seat is for all day rides, but you may have a had time on the down hill section if you need to get behind it . Overall you can get used to it and rip up the single track.
