    Strength:

    Beautiful, light, strong, excellent design, big, cheap.

    Weakness:

    I thing the cover should be better affixed to the base, but until now it is firm.

    This is the best sadle I know.
    I had a SDG Big Boy but the rails bent like macaroni.

    I thing Tioga do not bent the rails because they made a intelligent flexible base for save the 8 mm rails. 5 Flaming overall.

    I payed only U$ 16 in a brazilian on-line store. I'm very happy with this product. 5 flamin value.

    Well, well, it is good to Nicolas Voullez, is good to me :)

    If you go big, get this saddle!

    Strength:

    Functionality! All the guys I ride with have this seat, and this winter, I really learned to use the seat to my advantage while climbing. The extra length really helps out.

    Weakness:

    Okay, can you imagine the jokes I get being a female and riding with a seat shaped like this one?!? It's actually kind of comical. But, once you get over the looks, it's well worth it. Also, the paint on the rails.

    If you want a saddle that functions like a saddle should, is not so hard that you can't walk after your ride, and will take a good slam here and there without failing, get this seat.

    Strength:

    tough rails,kevlar edges,vinyl covering,comfortable

    Weakness:

    no real problems

    A very tough saddle, I have had about 4 jumps resulting in a crash each time on the kevlar edges and they still look brand new, I had a hard landing on the seat a while ago and I havn't bent the rails yet. There are some minor problems with it like the stapples are starting to fall out from underneath and gram weinies will complain about the weight a little bit(Paul Vizzari),and I think that the Azonic seats are more comfortable than this one though.I also managed the get this seat for $80 dollars less because it was on sale.

    Strength:

    UTMOST COMFORT LENGTH STANDOUT LOOKS

    Weakness:

    CRAP RAIL PAINT KINDA HEAVY STANDOUT LOOKS!

    THE ULTIMATE CUSH SEAT WITH A PERFECT PROFILE (FOR ME). XL LENGTH IS THE REAL PLUS.

    BUT, I HAD TO CUTOUT THE SHELL FOR COMFORT + RAIL PAINT CHIPS OFF EASILY. OH WELL. 450G TOO. THATS 4GRAMS SHY OF A POUND!

    EVERYONE NOTICES YOUR SEAT AND WILL MOST LIKELY COMMENT ON IT IF THERE TALKIN TO YA. BEEN CALLED A "LOAF OF BREAD" "HORSE'S D---" "THATS QUITE THE SEAT YA GOT THERE!!"

    BEAUTY.

    Strength:

    Comfortable for long distances.

    Weakness:

    Weak rails, Rips easily, Paint comes of rails to easily.

    good for money, though the rails are weak. Also it didn't like my Kalloy seat post, I got a Ritchey and it then worked fine, it is a good saddle for Dual and DH.

    Strength:

    Comfy and really is an improvement over most shorter saddles, kevlar edges are nice, and an "O SO KEWL" racing stripe!

    Weakness:

    I was at Attitash recently for the race, and i have to say i was very disappointed. i took one slip off the pedals and i didnt hit the seat very hard but aparently it was hard enough to bend the rails all to #ell. the rails have bent perfectly around my thomson seat post, and i have no adjustment left.

    I was really disappointed. it seems like all the good riders were riding Tioga, so i trusted this seat to last. i had it for a week before it was trashed! they really need to do something about the rails. i am going to try to bend them enough so that the seat is at least EVEN.. A great design, but the workmanship with those rails is ridiculous! they probably forgot to heat-treat them or something.. anyways, if you dont ride hard, this would be a great seat, but it does not hold up to DH abuse... not even slalom!

    Strength:

    price, looks, size

    Weakness:

    a little wiggly

    Great seat overall. Tons of room to move around on and super long rails for ultimate fore/aft adjustments. Plus that white stripe looks bad a$$. I only wish I had the Tioga DH rims to match. My only problem is that the seat seems to have a little play on the rails. It doesn't seem to be a problem now, long term I don't know.
