Strength:

Ti, kevlar rails, cheap, comfy, very lightweight, lasts a long time (the last one did)

Weakness:

the first saddle I bought had a kevlar edge not on right, and was scuffed in a corner; don't know what that was all about, but exchanged it right away no problem

Great saddle. Does not look as light as it is (so much padding).

Similar Products Used: the saddle this replaced was not padded, but was another Performance Bike Ti-railed seat which lasted around 12 years (but could not get it off the seatpost)

Strength:

Lightweight (200g), cheap, doesn't suck...

Weakness:

Absolute minimum of saddle for comfort, but still okay, barely. Bent the rails, which wasn't okay.

Well, the rails on this bad boy bent like they were made of hangar wire, but there were extenuating circumstances.

First, I have a full suspension bike, but when I hit my chainring on a log, there's no suspension at all and the shock goes straight up the seatpost to the seat rails.

Second, the seatpost I was using was light, but didn't have a lot of seat rail support (not something I really thought about before). I think it was a Syncros 7075. I fixed that and got a Thomson Elite, which has good support.

Sending the seat back to Performance - they said they would send me another or exchange for something else after 9 months of use.

Strength:

Comfortable, narrow, light, kevlar trim

Weakness:

None yet

I was a little reluctant to buy this seat because the quality of PBS brand stuff can sometimes vary. But it had everything I wanted: light (225 grams), Ti rails, kevlar trim, narrow profile, and great price. It has a great narrow profile that allows me to get behind the seat without catching my thighs. It also has the perfect amount of padding. I was pretty much sold after the first few rides, but the durability question was still out there. After 6 months of use, the seat has held up very well and I like it more everyday. It's good to see PBS make such a great product at such great price.

Strength:

Feels good, looks good, light weight, durable.

Weakness:

No fancy italian name.

There are actually very few sub-250g ti-railed saddles out there that have Kevlar edges. This is the cheapest, and one of the best. It made me realize how bad my last saddle was. So if you want a racing-weight saddle that can actually take a hit, look no further.

Strength:

Light, cheap, Ti rails, Kevlar corners, gonad relief

Weakness:

none so far

I was a little hesitant about buying this seat, but so far I've been really happy. It has just the right amount of padding, it's light, and it's cheap. I felt comfortable on it right away.

Vick   Cross Country Rider [Oct 20, 2002]
Strength:

Light weight, low cost

Weakness:

None so far

Took my new saddle out for the first time, on the longest ride I've done so far. Twelve miles and I'm nowhere near as sore as I expected to be! My sit bones should adjust very quickly, and, I've no numbness in my "soft tissue" like I've experienced with some saddles.will drop another line after a few months to let you know how well it holds up.

Strength:

No break in period. Light. Comfie.

Weakness:

None.

My original saddle had a peculiar lean to it after 4 years (bent rail). I replaced it with the Performance Team saddle, and I have been very happy with the choice. This is both lighter and more comfortable right out of the box. I have ridden about 500 miles on it, and this is one of those buys that I consider myself lucky on.

DR   Cross Country Rider [Nov 19, 2002]
Strength:

light, comfortable, scuff guards

Weakness:

havent found any yet

After knocking two high-dollar saddles off the rails in minor crashes, I decided to go with the no-name PBS saddle--a fairly good deal for leather, scuff guards and ti rails. I did not expect much, but this saddle rivals any name brand saddle out there. Zero break in, very comfortable on epic rides and, thus far, durable. Kudos to Performance for getting this one right.
