I know some of you ride these. Anybody had one for long enough to know how tough they are? I ride XC, some rocky streambeds and small (2') on-trail drops (and those awful national forest circa 1940-design trail steps!)

Thanks

3 months w/ my prolite & no problems. The 'leather' is cheap as hell & wears fast - so it looks like s&%t - but what did I expect for $30?

Second that

wrecked and trashed mine within 2 weeks of buying it. Now the leather is wearing out but at $30 a pop I'm still happy it wasn't an aspide that got trashed. I've had mine on for 4 months or so

I've had mine for a few weeks and it still looks good...... :D

It sounds like they are no longer available though. Supergo no longer has them on their website.

Going well

For the first month of useI found the fit to be better than my WTB rocket. Then recently there was a week in which it started killing by arse, but that subsided and now it is back to being a bit more comfortable than my WTB. There is no wear evident, but it has gotten dirty. I've had if for 2 months and done 2 races. I would buy it again, but am also interested in the deals Nashbar has on some brand-name saddles.

I'm on my second

I don't know what happened but one day while I was loading my bike into the van I noticed that the rails were bent on the R-10 ti saddle. It looked like just the left saddle rail was bent. I couldn't feel it as I rode but I replaced it anyway. It was about a year old and the new saddle is about the same age and is bent also on the same side.

It must be the way that I ride although I 've never bent a saddle until these Aerions.

It is the most comfortable MTB saddle that I have used so far and will keep buying them because they are a good value. The white stiching gets dirty and turns brown rather quickly.

Couldn't get over the embroidery on the Pro-lite so i got the plainer model below it. Been on it for a year now, leather looks worn but no tears, what little embroidery on it is mostly worn off, and rails are still pretty straight. For $25 I will definitely buy another.
