    Strengths:    confortable at first. price is reasonable.

    Weaknesses:    pounds out very shortly after purchasing. Sides of saddle folded over. Poor craftsmanship.

    Bottom Line:   
    WTB is the best saddle out there but they are missing the mark with the woman specific saddle out there.

    Strengths:    It's a saddle.

    Weaknesses:    So painful after 2 miles I had to ride back by road as I could not face bumping down the farm track.

    Bottom Line:   
    I just picked up my first mountain bike which was fitted with this saddle. Fine to start off with, but like the other reviewer, after 20 minutes I was desperate to get off. It really hurt the bones towards the back (don't know what they are called). I will be getting a new saddle or swapping it with the one from my road bike before I go out again.

    Strengths:    It came with the bike for free.

    Weaknesses:    Not very comfortable

    Bottom Line:   
    It is great some companies like WTB are trying to offer better seats for women. However, the seat falls short of the target. It only good for about about 20 minutes and I'm very sore and uncomforable. Don't buy unless it comes with your bike. If your buying a new bike, ask about upgrading it to a better version. If it came w/ your bike and it works, great. If not, purchase a better saddle for it is healtier to get out and use yuor bike than let it sit. It seems like firm = better. Look for a gel or similar fill material.

    Bike Setup:   This was the stock seat that came with my new Jamis Dakota Comp Women's Edition. The bike was a $1,300 bike. Alone, it looks like this seat sells for $30. Jamis would be better off equiping the bike with a better seat. I installed the Serfa's Rx from my old bike. It uses gel instead of foam and is a very comfortable saddle. Although, the Serfa's did cost $50 new so you do get what you pay for. I haven't tried a higher end WTB Women's saddle.

    Strengths:    -looks cool

    -if your goal is to punish your privates, then this is the seat for you


    Weaknesses:    -WAY TOO SQUISHY

    Bottom Line:   
    This saddle blows goats. It is way too soft and my sensitive parts are paying for it! It gave me the saddle sores from hell. 2 flamin' poos because it was cheap, 1 flamin' poo because I will never walk the same again.

    Strengths:    Feels nice and cushiony while off the bike.

    Weaknesses:    Hurts my ass and privite area every time I ride whether it be 1 mile or 25 miles. And my ass hurts for a couple days after I use it as well. I am very disappointed.

    Bottom Line:   
    I'm not sure if the seat would work for chicks under 150 pounds but over that, hell no! If I can't even ride to my Post Office without my ass hurting (about 1/2 mile) then this seat SUCKS!

    Strengths:    Seems well made & looks good

    Weaknesses:    I have ridden dozens of saddles over dozens of years & none has rubbed me raw in under 20 miles. This includes stopping to adjust the nose way down. It is too soft to suppost your weight on your sit bones, so you sink onto the tender areas. Could ruin your night life in one ride. As fun as having sandpaper in your shorts. Never thought I would ride a saddle that made me look forward to getting on the Flight.

    Bottom Line:   
    This saddle will be returned to REI this week for refund.

    Strengths:    This saddle works for me. It didn't take any "break in" period. The saddle has enough cushion to be comfortable for me but not too much to sink into.

    Weaknesses:    I'm not sure how long the synthetic leather will go without cracking.

    Bottom Line:   
    I have been on cross country rides as well as mountain bike trails with this saddle and have been quite comfortable. I've also had some hard landings on it and haven't had any problems. It works well for me.

    Strengths:    Price

    Weaknesses:    Comfort

    Bottom Line:   
    I purchased this seat for my wife based on my experience with WTB's Speed V. The Speed V is the most comfortable seat I have ever imagined! My wife tried it and thought the same. We figured the Speed She would offer at least the same level of comfort and performance. We were WRONG! This Speed She caused her extreme discomfort and pain for several days after going for a 15 mile ride. It is very hard and of poor ergonomic design, opposite of the features of a Speed V.
    I'm buying her a Speed V or Laser V TODAY! They may be male specific, but they shure work great for her. I have to give this product 1 cold Chili because it is not useable.

    Comments on WTB Speed She Comp Saddle (Any other recommended women's saddles?)

    I'm getting a new saddle for my wife. I'm looking for something moderate in width with firm, but dense padding. Any suggestions? I was going to get the WTB Speed She Comp Saddle, but some of the reviews here seem to be fairly negative.Read More »

    Ladies! Need your advice please on the WTB Speed She - is it really that horrible?

    To the mtb ladies out there, I just bought a WTB Speed She Comp saddle for my wife, who comes back from a trip in a month. I didn't bother to look up the reviews because all of the other saddles WTB makes kick azz. However, today I noticed that all the reviews for it are abominable. Is it really ... Read More »

    She's done! my $136 single speed convert w/pics

    From an earlier post.... A couple months ago I got the idea to strip my 1992 cannondale m700 down and make it into a low budget single. It was rotting in the garage or being abused in the hands of my youngest brother so I wanted to do something fun with it. So far (not including the original cost ... Read More »
