Strengths:    Light, comfortable(!!), strong. I weighs 99 grams.

Weaknesses:    nothing

Bottom Line:   
This saddle is the very ticket. When I bought it for the Rocky Mountain Element TSC bike I was not really sure if I could use it for long trails. But after my first try I went and ordered a second Tune Speedneedle for the other bike (S-Works).
Wow, is it light. But at the same time this saddle is the most comfortable saddle I ever experienced. I can use it for a day without any problems whatsoever.

Strengths:    Comfortable (YES is true), Light, Carbon, Cool Looking

Weaknesses:    You need a special adapter from USE to use this and it is not compatible with all seatpost

Bottom Line:   
Amazingly comfortable, the first time I sat on it it reminded me of the Selle Italia Flight. I use this saddle daily 70km commute, my rear hasn't complained once. It seems that the saddle sits just under your t bone. The only down side is that you would need a special wide diameter rail from some seatpost, as in the USE Alien.

Date Reviewed: May 19, 2006

Strengths:    Light(marathon= 109g),enough comfortable,killer looks,strong(yes indeed!)

Weaknesses:    Leather wears fast and begins to come loose at the tip,that's all after some time thinking...

Bottom Line:   
First impression when i held the saddle:wow,am i going to sit on this!?!Super light feeling,quite strong but the shell is pretty flexy,so comfort is guaranteed.I'm talking about the Marathon.It has a thin leather cover but after several muddy and wet bike conditions it begins(after a year) to wear a bit.At the nose of the saddle there's also some leather coming loose.This is because when i bike i hold my legs pretty close to the toptube,so it scrubs a bit.
After all a very comfortable saddle and a good investment for them who are looking for a lightweight saddle that still is comfortable.
