Strength:

Comfortable for DH, Cheap, Tough

Weakness:

Heavy

This is a hard to beat seat for DH. It's cheap, has tough rails, and is fairly comfortable. I haven't done any XC rides on this seat, but for DH purposes, you won't destroy your prostate when you land a jump wrong or have to sit down for a rest. It doesn't seem to get in the way either when maneuvering. One corner of the fabric cover is just barely starting to come loose, but for the price it doesn't really matter. It does seem heavy, so weight-weenies should steer clear.

Strength:

Cheap, Comfortable, Light, Looks Good

Weakness:

Not comfortable for long seated pedaling

This review is for the New Strike Saddle. This saddle is perfect for the intended use, which is downhill. It's easy to maneuver around and looks trick on the bike. I found it uncomfortable compared to the WTB saddles for extended pedaling, but the flat design allowed me to move around it way easier than the WTB "Whale Tail." For the money, this is a no-brainer. The saddle isn't the lightest, so weight weenies should steer clear, as should anyone who plans on pedaling their bike in a seated position for a long period of time.

Strength:

Cheap comfortable suitable for light freeride -all mountain use good for long rides

Weakness:

heavy, no protection at rear corners comes in one color only

Cheapest all rounder saddle I've owned, not the lightest but for the dollars you pay you can replace it for a small price.
I liked the Bontrager but always ended up with a numb gooch no such problem with the sette saddle. Buy this if you arent a gravity defying hucker or spend half your ride climbing.
