Strength:

Light weight, leather cover, very comfortable

Weakness:

weak rails bend in off-road use

Love the shape of this Velo made saddle, perfect combination of comfort and light weight. The shell is designed to flex so it contours very well to your sit bones while pedaling.

Sadly, the CN/Ti Alloy rails were not up to offroad use. I'm not a saddle destroyer so I was kind of surprised to see the rails bend on this seat. Since it was over 1 year old, there was no warranty from Price Point and they have discontinued the saddle.

Good news is that Nashbar sells the same saddle (though for $35) so I got a new one for my road bike which works fantastic for long rides.

Strength:

comfort, low weight, long rails/adjustability..appears durable

Weakness:

none obvious

a saddle fit is a very personal thing and the best i have been able to get is with my well broken in swift. i built this bike up from mostly older spare parts and was on a tight budget, checked out the sette stuff and chose this saddle. i like having the longer rails so i can get the saddle centered rather than canted out on the seatpost and then lose that little bit of suspension the rails provide, especially on a hardtail. this saddle is hands down the most comfortable saddle i have found for my boney backside. i may just buy another and retire the swift for now. durability isn't proven yet. the price is right. it works very well for me. long rides without saddle fatigue is my experience.
