Product Description

The WTB Silverado saddle is, much like the name, a western ideal. A great saddle for those who prefer a narrow, long seat that allows some positioning flexibility while not getting in the way. Sleek, like a fine horse. Light, like the minimal gear you carry in your hydration pack. The WTB...

Strengths:    Comfortable, fit well (although this is personal(.

Weaknesses:    Creaked!!!

Bottom Line:   
I purchased 2 of these saddles because of the fit but both developed nasty creaks within 3 months. Tried putting lube on the rails but it did not help. Both are now sitting in my garage because the creaking was intolerable. I will not purchase any WTB saddles again. I'm using Fizik saddles now that are not as comfortable but are silent.

Submitted by Haracombe a Cross Country Rider from United Kingdom

Date Reviewed: March 10, 2010

Strengths:    This is comfortable for a lightweight MTB race saddle over long distances and has sufficient flex for the bumps on mtb trails.

Weaknesses:    When the saddle eventually meets the ground the cover material tears easily.

Bottom Line:   
The Silverado SLT is still there on the bike because it gives a nice firm but comfy ride for the narrow behind. But take care when you come off or you will have the glue out.

Date Reviewed: June 2, 2008

Strengths:    nice solid build, fairly light and pretty comfortable for a xc rave saddle

Weaknesses:    the nose on mine started to peal back after about 5 months of using it, but it still preforms fine.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome saddle, plus you dont see many of em, I am going to give only 4 chillis for overall because the leather on the nose started to come out, but other than that its a friggin awesome saddle, and would buy again. I think that it would only suite cross country and all mountain categories only!

Strengths:    Pretty light for such a comfortable saddle. Looks great

Weaknesses:    nose of saddle is loose. Alittle to pointed at nose.

Bottom Line:   
I have used a WTB rocket for a long time and have loved it. I was'nt sure If I would like the Silverado when I first got it. I wanted something a little lighter than the rocket so that why I thought I would try the saddle. I put it on anyway to try it and have not taken it off since! Great saddle. Much more comfy than the rocket! I used to get a little sore with the rocket after a couple of hours of riding, but not with the silverado. I don't understand how a saddle with much less padding than the rocket can be so much more comfortable. Go figure. The only problem I have had with it is if you wear baggy shorts like I do, the nose can catch your shorts sometimes. Much more pointed than the rocket. Not a real bad problem and really worth the inconvence for the comfort. Great saddle!
