    Strength:

    Very comfy, great for extra control of your bike on the downhills.

    Weakness:

    None. Rails are fine!
    It's a DH seat which means its for D o w n H i l l.
    Maybe it's not for jumps or maybe all you who are bending them just need to lose some wieght.

    The best downhill seat you will ever buy. Kinda gives your bike a dirtbike feel.

    looks cool

    Weakness:

    its finally wearing out on me
    after 3 years

    Im a heavy rider, just under 300lbs, and this is the best seat ive ever ridden
    when my friends get on my bike they say the same
    great control and also allows you to slide forward or backward on the seat for uphills and downhills

    Strength:

    Durablity, stiffness,looks

    Weakness:

    I found that it became a bit to narrow in the front end so for some uphill climbs you have a seat wedged between your ass. It creaked but I fixed that by tightening the seat bolts

    I admit that it was a great seat at first but after a couple months of ruding with it. My ass started to cramp uup on hills on trail rides. I sold the tioga and bought a funn lunch pad. It has a wider surface area and is supercomfy.

    Strength:

    Comfortable

    Weakness:

    rails bend extremely easily

    A very comfortable saddle, but the weakest rails I've ever seen!! I've only had this saddle for a month now, and I havn't dropped more than about 5' so far, but the rails are all bent to hell already.

    I haven't tried any other dh saddles, but the base Bontrager on my xc bike held up much better than the Tioga.

    Strength:

    Lots of padding, great length

    Weakness:

    Rails are absolute crap

    I looked around a lot for a seat to replace my last one. I wanted one that was nice and long so I could shift my weight around, and also one that had good padding. The tioga matched this perfectly so I picked it. Within 1.5 weeks I had slightly bent the rails vertically, a week later they were a little more bent, then this past weekend, after 3-4 weeks on the bike, one rail collapsed totally when I took a hard hit on a jump. OK, it was a hard hit but man, the seat only lasted a month tops! My other saddle (the Point) took more abuse than that for sure. Looks like one benefit of a shorter saddle is shorter rails, that's what I'll look for next time.

    Excellent set but the bending in the middle makes u a little worried at first . Used by Orange Playstation and the messier , Tomac , so it must be good ! 4 hot chillies for this little love puppy to protect the little general and keep u comfy

    Strength:

    soft, comfy

    Weakness:

    rails bend like a wet noodle

    When i tried by friend's seat, i was so impressed by the comfort of the seat that i went out and bought one. But after a few days, i realized the rails were a little bent. A week later, i was riding and the seat felt funny. I got off and the seat was twisted, bent in every direction imaginable. note: i only weigh 135 lbs. for comfort i'd give it a 5, but it lacks in strenth.
