Strengths:    Feels good. Not a pain in the a$$.

Weaknesses:    Zero

Bottom Line:   
Been on the same seat since 2005. My Stumpy FSR came w/ a Specialized brand Body Geometry seat and it was a tourture device. I couldn't ride the bike 2 days in a row because it was so bad. Sat on a guys bike with a Lazer at the local trail and orderd one the next day. I'm 190 lbs and the seat still looks great. When it's time for a new seat, I'll by another!

Strengths:    Comfort

Weaknesses:    Construction

Bottom Line:   
I am, or was, a big WTB saddle fan. I have found them all to be very comfortable. I weigh in at 190 with a very supple (and quite breathtaking) behind. The problem with this seat in particular is that they used synthetic leather on the front half of the saddle that is glued to a nylon fabric underneath. These two very slick textures do not adhere to each other well. As i think about it now it was probably due to the fact that with my new job i started leaving my bike on top of my car during the day in the sun. This probably weaking the adhessive and when i hop my chistled behind onto the saddle to ride, it just loosened the bond. I now have no synthetic left on my seat due to it tearing off.

Date Reviewed: April 8, 2010

Strengths:    Comfortable, fairly light weight, price

Weaknesses:    fabrics and textured simulated leather tend to collect dirt

Bottom Line:   
Bought this saddle based on other reviews touting its comfort. I have been very pleased. It is just a little wider than my fizik nisene (another good saddle-on my other bike). A good saddle for my 200 lb body. I will be putting one on my tandem, too.

Strengths:    Advertisements - marketing

Weaknesses:    construction and quality

Bottom Line:   
This product was horrible - flip one over and you can see the lack of detail and attention to quality. I ordered three saddles online that were WTB and none of them worked out - hard and uncomfortable - do not waste your time or money buying these products. I have no idea why these saddles would be rated as highly as I have read unless it is employees from the company writing the reviews. If you are looking for a quality saddle that has paid attention to construction and comfort I would suggest Fizik - do not keep buying the crap from China and Tawain or WTB.

Date Reviewed: October 3, 2009

Strengths:    Light, strong, wide and comfortable

Weaknesses:    I've only tried it on my brother's bike. But we always rides together and he swears by it. No problems so far and he's had it for a year now.

Bottom Line:   
I always try to save a few grams here and there and thus I always end up purchasing Selle Italia saddles. I currently have two bikes and each has a Selle Italia saddle (SLR Ti & C2 Gel Flow). Both of them are not very comfortable (little padding) and try to separate my butt cheeks (that's right, you know what I'm talking about).

The WTB Laser V Pro saddle looks like it weighs 350g (which is why i didn't buy one) but after trying it and looking up the specs I was very surprised to find out it only weighs 255 grams (same as my C2 Gel Flow!)

This saddle isn't as long as Selle Italia's, but it's a bit wider. you don't get that "but separating" feeling and it has plenty of padding to make it an extremely comfortable ride.

I sit on my saddle 70% of the time when I ride and about half way through on a Selle Italia my butt hurts but I could ride all day with this WTB.

This is an honest review by Xilant.

Strengths:    Light, and very comfortable, the V cut makes it easy to ride for hours.

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
One word COMFORT!!! this thing is so nice! the V channel and comfort zones make it easy to ride for 3 hours like nothing. Mine is an older year model and its still great. Also you can beat how light this thing is. Check out ebay for great deals on all WTB saddels. Got this one for $25 it retails for more than double.
