    Strengths:    Very durable, well formed seat.

    Weaknesses:    Not much padding, but its still comfortable, its weird.

    Bottom Line:   
    If your willing to spend the money, its a great seat. Not to good for downhill, but just all around riding, trails would be good to, good street seat.

    Strengths:    lightweight, comfortable for weight, Ti rails, very flexible shell, price

    Weaknesses:    too little padding in the nose for my tastes

    Bottom Line:   
    This saddle was recommended to me by a couple of friends, and overall it's a real nice saddle, but the one drawback was enough to send me back to my old standby the SDG Grand Prix. My problem, and it really wasn't much of a problem, is that for me the nose of the saddle didn't have enough padding. Around here most rides start with a good 10 - 12 miles of climbing so I generally spend a lot of time perched on the nose of the saddle, and for that, it just wasn't as comfortable as my SDG. Otherwise it was a very comfortable saddle, definitely well made and priced very well, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a very lightweight but comfortable saddle.
