    Strengths:    Quality construction. Great thigh clearance (narrow profile), comfortable yet light.

    Weaknesses:    None yet

    Bottom Line:   
    A really nice saddle. Yet to pass the test of time (and long rides). Dramatically better saddle/ better padding than early WTB saddles that were much too firm.
    Very pleased with this purchase.
