    Strength:

    Seems to be made well

    Weakness:

    comfort

    I can't help but wonder if some of these reviews are from paid individuals because this seat stinks in comfort. I also have a buddy that just bought a tandem that has this seat and he agrees.. terrible.

    Strength:

    Comfort Comfort Comfort.
    This is the most plushest seat I hav ever been on. My riding style makes me sit on my seat bone too much. This seat alleviates the discomfort associated w/ that style of riding!
    No pressure between groinal or the "boys".
    Can sit on it hours @ a time.

    Weakness:

    Material looks cheap. So a wreck could tear it up.

    I'm a heavier rider @ 185 so a lot of weight gets planted in the saddle.
    Try this one out.
    It's cheap enough (<$30) that you won't have any regrets if it doesn't fit you.
    Not for the weightfly models...but for the rest of us avg. humans :)

    You can ususally find it cheap @ Performance (the Speed V Sport). I can't imagine the lighter Speed models being any better than this one.

    But seats are a personal thing & it takes alot of seat time to discern which is right for you.

    Pretty comfortable, durable

    Weakness:

    Long rides in the saddle get a little painful

    Great saddle, came stock on Jamis Durango Sport SX. Durable. Yeah, it is a little painfull after long rides in the saddle but hey, when your mountian biking hard your outta your saddle a lot so that doest effect it. It only effects me on long rides (Road) to the places I mountain Bike at.

    Strength:

    Comfort, Price, Size and Look

    Weakness:

    The bottom of the seat looks cheaply built... staples showing.

    I was looking for a more comfortable seat because the Bontrager seat that came stock on my Trek 8500 really hurt... even on short rides. I mostly use my bike for riding in the city, so I was thinking of getting one of those big fat gel seats, but they just don't look too cool, and I do use my bike off-road sometimes.
    I was a little unsure about the Speed V Sport seat at first, because when I pressed my fingers into it at the shop, the padding felt very simular to that on the stock Bontrager seat I wanted to replace. But after two different bike shops recommended this seat, I decided to give it a try. From the first few seconds I started riding on this seat, I could tell a night and day difference from my stock seat. I don't know how WTB did it, but they designed this mid-sized seat to feel awesome. It flexes right where my bones hit the seat. I would highly recommend the Speed V Sport, and it looks great on my black and grey Trek 8500 too.

    Strength:

    Comfort, shape, size, price

    Weakness:

    side panels wear easily

    Take the time and look for a seat, what might be good for me might not be for you. With all the different designs made there is no need to ride on an uncomfortable seat. Since using this seat I have yet to have an ache on my backside. A worthwhile investment. I wish I had bought one years earlier when I was sitting on a stock SDC Comp. Combining the seat with my new full suspension makes riding an even greater pleasure. If you want to spend the extra money, purchase the laser v dh, it has the kevlar cover to help prevent tearing that you get on the lower priced models. If you want a great seat at a great price the speed v is for you.

    Strength:

    looks ok.

    Weakness:

    very uncomfortable.

    This seat HURTS. I thought I would get used to it after breaking it in, but this saddle hurts more each time I get on the bike. I've never had such a miserably uncomfortable saddle. It makes me not even want to ride. It even hurts more than the $5 super-cheapo "love channel" Nashbar POS saddle that it replaced. I think I'll try a Brooks next, or maybe something from Wal-Mart. I can't imagine anything could be worse.

    At $30, it's probably a good value for the person who fits this seat, which isn't me.

    Strength:

    Strong materials, it will last a long time

    Weakness:

    Very hard on the bottom, left me with a numbing pain for over a month once, impossible to find a good position

    Very hard, I do not recommend. The soft touch does not equal a comfortable ride.
