Strengths:    Extremely well made & lightweight. Good quality padding. Stitching and materials used are all top class. Gives good support for longer rides. The Seat area is 150mm wide. Titanium rails same weight. The ‘Love channel’ takes pressure of your boy bits. The saddle is reasonably light at 240 grams.

Weaknesses:    Expensive saddle. Then again, I got this from a Shop. Relatively heavy compared to other performance saddles?

Bottom Line:   
Saddle fit is all about your personal body 'fit'. After over 3 years of use, this is lightweight AND still comfy. An excellent saddle, if you are prepared to compromise (slightly) on the weight. Very solid and well made. Very supportive. I use this saddle for XC riding, but have also found it very good on the occasional downhill run on my wife’s GIANT Reign. Would get 5 out of 5 for Value if you could get it off eBay / On Sale.

Similar Products Used:   The steel railed 450 gram regular version of the same saddle. Also used the Sexy-looking-but-painful-on-the-arse white Leather Racing SLT WTB 185 gram version - Too narrow and caused a lot of bruising!

Bike Setup:   GIANT NRS Carbon Air, built up myself from the bare Frame Up ... that way you can get it how you like it first off, rather than modding a stock bike!

Strengths:    Great product. I have had two. The first one broke after many years. I weigh over 200LBS and it fits perfect

Weaknesses:    None. I think the people who say it creaks should check elsewhere on their bike.

Bottom Line:   
Perfect saddle. Maybe, wide for some. Bigger guys should love it.

Strengths:    love channel thingy takes some strain off on longer rides...

Weaknesses:    very wide at the rear, creaks like crazy

Bottom Line:   
not a great saddle for the off roader... i find the saddle too wide at the back which actually gets in the way when shifting my weight back going down hill, especially when im leaning into corners and shifting my weight on very technical sections.

the width also puts excess pressure on one point at the rear of my thigh/ass which i ended up rubbing so raw (on both legs) that it started bleeding on a long xc ride.

this saddle creaks like an old barn door, people can hear you pedalling up the trail long before they can see you! im do hit the gym hard, so im 5'8 and almost 180lbs but still...

Submitted by Dave L a Cross Country Rider from Torrance CA

Date Reviewed: April 8, 2007

Strengths:    Very comfortable. I can ride longer in comfort.

Weaknesses:    Nose might be a tad wide for some. Seems okay for me.

Bottom Line:   
I selected this saddle based on its similar design to the saddle that came on my full suspension GT I-drive, which I find comfortable. I needed a very comfortable saddle for my road bike to do century rides and other 6 hour plus excursions. So far this saddle has met all my expectations and I find it comfortable even after more than 5 hour sitting on it. I'm 190 lbs.
