Strengths:    Its really light.

Weaknesses:    Its a little stiff

Bottom Line:   
Its not a bad saddle. The width is about right for my sit bones and its easy to get back off the seat and behind it for downhill sections. Personally i was hoping it would be a little more cushy. Its just really stiff. Also the stitching on the side didnt last me but maybe a few rides and it was coming apart. I think for the money it could be a little more comfy and there are other seats out there that are way more comfortable and LESS expensive. This seat shouldnt be more than about $60 IMO. I just dont think its worth the money.

Date Reviewed: January 16, 2007

Strengths:    Most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden. Looks cool too.

Weaknesses:    Price (but having ridden many different saddles the comfort level is worth the $$).

Bottom Line:   
I have been happy with every WTB saddle I've ever owned but the Stealth takes top dog. As long as WTB keeps turning out saddles like they can count on my exclusive business.

Strengths:    Comfy seat that looks good too.

Weaknesses:    There are several stitching seems that might be uncomfortable for some.

Bottom Line:   
This seems like the wider version of the WTB Rocket, which was exactly what I was looking for. I can ride all day; day after day, without any soreness 'down there'. The center of the seat does flex slightly to accomodate rough terrain. I would recommend this seat to anyone who is looking for something slightly wider than your standard saddle.

Strengths:    Light, comfortable, easy to maneuver on.

Weaknesses:    None that I can think of

Bottom Line:   
I have been riding on this saddle for a little over a year in off road triathlons like Xterra. It has been durable (surviving a few crashes here and there) and comfortable. I think WTB makes a good product as far as saddles go. I would go with this or the Rocket depending on your preference regarding width - the Pure is wider.

Strengths:    comfortable

Weaknesses:    slightly wide, rails bent

Bottom Line:   
the most comfortable seat I've had, a little sticky, maybe because of the padding or width. would of rated higher but the rails bent, not enough to make a diff. but I can see the seat is tilted

Specialized alias vs Pure V stealth

I'm torn between buying either of these saddles but I can't find any user reviews of them. I know the question "is it comfortable" can be subjective, but how firm are they? Is one more durable than the other? And how easy is it to move around on the saddle? Thanks for any input.Read More »

Actual wt. of WTB Pure V stealth saddle?

Has anyone actually weighed this saddle? WTB's website lists 235 g but I don't really believe that since every other WTB product I've bought weighs quite a bit more than advertised.Read More »

WTB Pure V Stealth saddle

Howdy, I'm considering replacing my older WTB SST Kevlar saddle with a WTB Pure V Stealth (235 gms). [url]http://www.wtb.com/pure_v.html[/url] This saddle is pretty spendy- it looks like most online retailers are discounting many of the other WTB saddles but not this one- cheapest price I've f ...
