    Strengths:    Pretty comfy.

    Weaknesses:    Extremely weak rails

    Bottom Line:   
    Wow... I really should have researched this product before I bought it. It looks cool and is pretty comfy, but I was pretty disappointed when I found the rails SEVERELY bent after I bailed off a skinny. When I bought it I originally thought the cromo rails would hold up, but clearly all rails are not created equal.

    Look elsewhere.

    Strengths:    looks good,decently comfortable

    Weaknesses:    super weak rails,gets a bit uncormfortable after long rides

    Bottom Line:   
    this is an average seat (you get what you pay for...cheap seat) but i was dissapointed how the rails bent side-ways and inward after i landed on the seat doing a set of medium sized dirt jumps (i only weigh 140 pounds). my friend also had the same seat and his bent into a banana shape after some light dh riding too. i recomend goin with a BLOCK 8 SOFA KING seat as it is much more comfortabl and super strong!!!!!!

    Strengths:    -Looks sick
    -Comfortable
    -Rails are really strong


    Weaknesses:    -Rips pretty easily


    Bottom Line:   
    This seat is really comfortable and for me has been very strong and hasnt bent at all. All thats been wrong with is... i got a rip in the saddle about the size of ooooh a quarter. It was fine for quite a while (2 months) then it ripped open badly like maybe four inches across the back of the saddle, which really pissed me off. But w/e it means ill be getting a new saddle and the pimp factor will be doubled as the next saddle is that sparkly .243 dh seat. But yea, strong comfortable, has somewhat good durability if u dont have to chuck ur bike off the skinnies of the shore every so often. I would recomend this saddle to, a down-hiller, or dirt jumper.

    Strengths:    Has lasted pretty well, has not bent, cover still good condition,good value.The paint on the rails hasnt even worn off.

    Weaknesses:    If you are riding sitting down for more than 20 minutes it starts to get uncomfortable. Hurts to land on.

    Bottom Line:   
    if you are doing dirt jumping and like DH seats, this is good because it is not too big so doesnt get in the way, but it hurts to land on. Good value. Get this if you like dirtjumping and downhill/ freeride.

    Date Reviewed: February 3, 2004

    Strengths:    Looks sweet, quite light and seems strong so far. Also very cheap.

    Weaknesses:    None so far.

    Bottom Line:   
    Price I paid is in £ so for over here this is more of a budget saddle. Havent used it that long but on first impressions it seems to be a strong saddle. It is also as comfy as a saddle is going to get especially when compared to an SGD Satellite. There are bound to be better saddles out there but for the money you cant really fault it.

    Strengths:    Side protection, long nose for cornering, comfortable

    Weaknesses:    Soft rails

    Bottom Line:   
    Bent the rails on this saddle in 2 rides without any big drops or crashes. This shouldn't happen in a saddle aimed at the freeride/DH crownd. I'm around 180lbs and ride hard, but don't go through saddles that often. LBS warranteed and I upgraded to El Norte model - much better. My advice is save your pennies for the El Norte.

    Strengths:    Looks cool

    Kinda strong
    Red rails


    Weaknesses:    weak
    expensive
    uncomfortable


    Bottom Line:   
    If it comes on your bike, keep it until you break it, and then get one that better suites the kind of riding that you do (ie. dirt jump saddle, DH saddle, freeride saddle or whatever.)

    Strengths:    lasted a while, and was on my bike when i bought it secondhand, so has lasted a while

    Weaknesses:    tore at the edges easily and seat rails bent

    Bottom Line:   
    it is a good comfy seat, but sadly it didnt take much abuse and the seat rails easily bent and the material at the edges wore easily, despite being a harder wearing material than the rest of the seat.
    if you want to do cross country this good and comfortable, but if it needs to take a beating look elsewhere

    Strengths:    Looks nice

    Weaknesses:    There waranty Dept.

    Bottom Line:   
    One X-country ride and the rails bent. I was told that the saddle was not made for that??????? I bought a $5 saddle in a bargin bin and it felt better and last longer than a titec saddle. The so called waranty dept was no help basically he called me liar and said that I abused the saddle. If one ride is abusing then a I abuse all my parts. After dealing with the waranty Dept i will never purchase or recomend a titec product. Tioga makes a really good product. I think i am going to try the WTB Laser.

    Bottom Line:   
    This seat is very comfortable. Unfortunately that is the only thing going for this seat. My bike took a 2 foot fall and the Kevlar sides busted open and the rails bent. I wouldn't spend the money on this product.
