Strength:

The ONLY full Kevlar covered saddle on the market. Extremely Light, Nice flex, Comfortable (if you don't have much back end) even on long rides

Weakness:

Titanium Rail Broke at about the three month mark, SDG offers only a 30 day warranty on this product.

Great saddle except it broke without doing anything extreme on it...I weigh 155 lbs. The warranty is as bad as they come. I would buy the same one to replace it, but I do not want to be out another $120 after only a couple months of use.

Strength:

- Very light for a padded saddle with Ti rails, possibly the lightest period.
- Quite comfortable (seriously)
- Durable

Weakness:

None

Saddles will always be a personal thing, but I think the Ti-Fly is great. It's survived three years on a hardtail pushed all the way back on the rails and it's still going strong. It's very light weight, and still has padding! The shell flexes nicely, and is a comfortable seat. The Ti rails are light and strong. Personally, I will never use a carbon railed seat.

Strength:

Light, comfortable and stylish in white/black.

Weakness:

Ti-rails bendt as a result of a crash, and broke when trying to bend back in position. Difficult and expensive to replace the rails, so I ended up buying a new seat.

A good-looking, light and comfortable seat. A bit expensive, but worth it.
Wish it was easier to get replacement rails, but this is probably something that applies to most other seats as well.

Strength:

Comfortable, light, strong and will flex in middle for unexpected hits.also a good price for a Titanium rail saddle.

Weakness:

not ideal if you don't use good bike shorts.also under side finish has obvious staples and glue. but then who looks under there anyway?

even though i was used to comfy saddles i have jumped straight in with the TiFly and can ride for up to 4 hours non stop and have a completely comfortable ride or race.
i recommend this seat to anyone with quality nicks who rides or races cross country and even more technical terrain as the saddle is smooth for quick transition from front to back without hook ups.

Strength:

Very light and comfy for short rides.

Weakness:

Too little flex and pure torture for longer rides.

An extremely light and good looking saddle, unfortunately the texture gets worn quickly. It feels very good when riding hard bumpy trails or just cruising along, it's almost feels "invisible".

Very easy to get in behind the saddle for the trickier down slopes and back up again.

For shorter rides under 2 hours this saddle is great, anything longer and you are in for alot of ass hurt. This saddle would have been perfect with a little more flex.

Strength:

Nicely finished, actual weight is what they advertise, 177g, comfortable for rocky XC rides.

Weakness:

Could have a relief zone or groove

Bought this for the price and weight for my XC project bike. Was a little worried about the comfort, since its so light, but that's not an issue. Haven't done an all day ride yet, but I don't think that'll matter. Nicely finished. This is the all black leather cover one.

Strength:

Looks and Light weight (176g actual).

Weakness:

Possibly a bit narrow

Saddle fitted straight on a thomson seatpost, No Problems. It feels a bit like a plank when sitting on it in the garage, but it flex's during the ride and doesn't numb the bum. Most of my rides are 1-1/2 hours at a time.
