Strength:

Puts your weight where it is supposed to be...on your butt. Customizable for each rider; for hours spent on the bike per week and by your weight. The technology allows more comfort for hardtail bikes than a traditional MTB saddle.

Weakness:

None so far.

I fall into the clydesdale category, so for me to find a saddle that meets my needs in the area of comfort and the right amount of firmness to feel great after hours on the bike was huge! It is unlike any saddle that I have ever owned before. The way the PRS Alpha distributes my body weight to my pelvis is such a relief, so long numbness in the nether regions, and so long back pain at hour number two into a four hour ride! I have only had this saddle a few weeks, but can tell already its going to be a great ride for a long, long time.
I liked it so much I got one for my cyclocross commuter as well. I don' think you can go wrong with this one.
The customer service is top notch too, I was amazed when I called and someone picked up right away. They answered all my questions and were very willing to help any way they could (so refreshing to see these days).

Strength:

The quality of leather. The fit & the PRS suspension.
Koobi website was easy to understand. Low cost shipping .
Easy retrun policy.

After taking 7 years off I finally got back into Mountain biking last year. My old Trek hardtail was killing me. Was searching around the internet & found the Koobi website & called them. They recommended the PRS Alpha. Kind of hard at first but now I have been very pleased with it.
I have zero saddle discomfort. Heck, it’s like there isn’t a saddle.

Strength:

Outstanding ride on my hardtail

Weakness:

Not very well know brand

I have ridden 2 Leadville 100's on my Koobi PRS Alpha & have found it to be an outstanding set up. The PRS suspension works very well on my hardtail. Before the 2nd Leadville I did install new elastomers which improved the ride . This was a fairly simple process .
Will buy a new one if I get into Leadville this year.

Strength:

The build quality of the Koobi PRS saddle is 1st rate. Leather is high grade, TI/Mag rails are solid. saddle shell looks bullet proof. The density of the saddle paddle along with the shock absorbing bumpers makes for a great ride even over long periods of time in the saddle

Weakness:

no so far

Great looking and riding saddle. Geo of saddle seems to maximize the confort. Koobi also provides 1st rate customer service. My hardtail is much more comfortable now.

Louie Stoner   Cross Country Rider [Apr 14, 2001]
Strength:

Still comfortable after one year of use

Weakness:

Poor quality control in manufacturing

Over a year from my first review I am still very happy with this saddle. I have yet to experience sore buns before sore legs at the end of a ride. The downside is in manufacturing repeatability at the Koobie plant in Taiwan? What a surprise!!! I bought a second Koobie for my hard tail and it arrived with an inferior grade of leather and the workmanship in attaching it was subpar. I don't believe this effects the comfort so much but would like to see more consistency in their product. Anyway, it fixes the problem I was having, so I have to give it 5 jalapenos for comfort.
