Strength:

Comfortable even during relatively long rides, i.e. a 6 hour,34 kilometer ride.

Weakness:

Durability, ergonomics.

I bought the saddle because my original one caused numbess and pain during long rides. The Velo Plush was definitely more comfortable for me but it took some getting used to since the saddle's shape is wider than my previous unit's, it took a few minor adjustment to dial it just right. What's disappointing is the product's durability, I bought it less than 3 months ago and it's now literally coming apart at the seams. I have never crashed the bike during the time the Velo was on nor was the saddle damaged during rides, the outer cover is coming undone at the seat's underside where it's glued and stapled. Too bad, if it had lasted more than a year I would have been happy.

Strength:

Initially good, comfortable

Weakness:

Gradually wore down at the end of last season. I would have been disappointed if I had purchased it as and individual component

Seeing the $30 price ticket on this, it's not worth half that price.

Strength:

Very comfortable saddle. I actually bought the gel version, while the plush was assigned to my fiancee. Easy to mount, we took our bikes out for two hours no problem. Hope I can feel the same excitement a year from now.

Weakness:

Could loose some weight. They weight around 400 grams.

For the price, the velo gel is a I think its a great cycling saddle, for the cycling fan who pprefers comfort over weight. I highly recommend it.

Strength:

WELL IT WAS CHEAP

Weakness:

bent like a bannana, rails are limp like flacid weena

well it was really cumfy on my bummy but it bent so much it looks like a cross between a concord jet and a bannana , basically it bent so much the clamp is stuck on the rails and cant get it off the seat post so follow up review is not so good its still feels good but its now on my sons bike along with the seat post , glad I didnt put it on an expensive carbon post , I am not that heavy
82kg /180 lbs either its made for lite weight weeny guys or just for standing over and not sitting on maybe its a road bike seat and not up to bumps or the rails are just to weak so if you are light buy one if you are a big boy dont!

Strength:

most comfortable seat I have ever used firm but soft on the wedding tackle no pain in between the nuts and the bolt

Weakness:

ohh like none well maybe it could have kevlar side and back protection

the bottom line is this will keep yours happy ,very nice seat great for quick slide offs during downhill good support because it isnt to wide but gives support like a wide soft seat . Looks really nice clean simple lines , reasonably lightweight , rails are strong.
Purchased from torpedo7.com (New Zealand)check em out great deals wth really cheap weekly specials

Strength:

Free, came on bike. Better than a seatpost.

Weakness:

Plush, awful feel after the first couple km as the padding compresses and leaves you riding on the poorly formed substrate, really hard on the rear for anything longer than a short ride around the neighbourhood.

Toss it, buy a real saddle that is firm. Plush is nice only if you're going to the corner store. A firm saddle with a bit of give won't leave you riding on the plastic base after the padding compresses.

This saddle was nice when I test rode the bike. But halfway into my first ride it was obviously in need of replacement as the padding compresses (especially if you're a big guy) and the rear of the saddle is too wide to be comfortable at all. The wider rear might work for a woman with wider hips however (I've got a skinny rear for a 6'3" guy)

Strength:

more comfortable than the stocker and is pretty good overall, very cheap

Weakness:

ripped and a little heavy

its a great plush seat for a cheap price but i wouldnt recommend if you do something where your very likely to crash because it will rip i was riding a wheelie and went too far, when it hit the ground the corner of the seat tore about the size of a quarter and some of the padding is sticking out a little but its still useable
