Weaknesses:    The laterals are fragile to scratches and the rails bent with the rigours of FR/DH.

Bottom Line:   
It is an excellent saddle, but is not enough strong. Ok, I don't know if there is some saddle enough strong for the stupid thinks we do with our bikes.
The fact is I did bent the saddle after six months. A good time life.
I must say the only one saddle I did not bent was the Tioga XL Multi Control, but the Titec has fine laterals for grip to the legs at some corners.
I'll give five for value rating because the bike was really cheap and the saddle is OEM.
I'll give four because the trails had bent after six months.

Strengths:    Nice materials, good pading, nice size

Weaknesses:    Stich between stripe busted a little.. still usable though

Bottom Line:   
One of the most comfortable saddles I've had. It is somewhat larger than what some people might like. In addition to comfort it has held up to over a year of many rough crashes. I will be looking at another soon.
