Strengths:    I use this for urban assualt. Has held up great after many trips to Ray's MTB and general street thrashing/crashes.Replaced a cross country sadle with it and am very happy. Built tough and comfortable. Nice design as well. Under rear of saddle there is a plastic insert which makes for easy grabbing/tire rub protection). Comfortable cushioning/wide landing platform. Are on sides for handgrabbing gription. Great for park bikes/dj.

Weaknesses:    Not good for longer rides in the saddle (as it's not made for it, it's too wide).

Bottom Line:   
Product delivers as expected. WTB is always a good choice.

Strengths:    Beefy, Ample width/padding, Short Overhangs

Weaknesses:    Numb Nuts

Bottom Line:   
Much better than most of the BMX seats I have ridden. With a brace to stiffen the rails you really have to want to bend this one. Has a snub nose that won't rip your shorts, a rear that lets you rub the back tire on the downs, and a cover that's not too grippy but never slips. Also has plastic trim for longevity and grip on the nose. This seat has surpassed all my expectations and will live on my BMX since THAT seat went over a cliff. Can't recommend for more than jumping or short rides though, Fullerton Loop is about the length of it's comfort level. A recent trip up Blackstar to Beek's had me stopping and massaging life back into my taint three times. First glance should tell you this aint no XC or Race seat, after the first 90 minutes you'll know what I mean. But for the skate park or casual rides this is a gem.
