Strengths:    Very light. the dropped nose helps prevent shorts from catching. sturdy and well built, leather is very good quality.

Weaknesses:    Uncomfortable for long rides. Narrow profile might not fit well with most people.

Bottom Line:   
A great 4x/MTX racing saddle, its greatest 'assets' are it's strength, durability and very light weight. Pricewise it's a good deal, but be warned, it's not the type of saddle to use on 1+ hour deathmarch climbs.

Strengths:    *Came stock on my bike so thats why i put $0 for price.*
First off, saddles are a personal taste item but i can tell you that ive tried other WTB saddles and while this one is smaller with less padding it is still extremely comfortable. ive recently done rides of 21, 14, and 16 miles on it and never noticed it was there which is the best compliment i can give a saddle.

Weaknesses:    none so far for me, may be to narrow for other's liking

Bottom Line:   
nice lightweight race oriented saddle that still has adequate comfort for all day rides. i love it

Date Reviewed: February 5, 2007

Strengths:    light weight

Weaknesses:    too narrow

Bottom Line:   
Bought this saddle to have a light saddle that was fairly comfortable. This saddle is a little to narrow for my tatse. Padding is thin, but I don't need a lot of padding. Opt for the wider Rocket V saddle, as I think it's a little better. Bottom line, I can't ride this saddle for more than a couple hours.
