Lots of exposed stitching (no discomfort for me, though).
I'm 6'3" and gear up around 210 lbs. After two years of pain and personal issues on a Fizik Gobi saddle on a 160mm DS, I had enough of the discomfort that lingered days after a ride.
I put 20 miles on a demo WTB Speed V and, while a step in the right direction, it still left some sore spots and discomfort after the ride.
I swapped to the Pure V two days later and felt the sore spots when I sat down, but the pain disappeared quickly and 20 more miles left me with no discomfort- even the previous ride's pain was gone.
I ordered the Pure V Pro that is lighter, supposedly stronger, and does not have exposed stitching on the top of the saddle. It was twice the price, but I expect to put some serious time and miles on it.
