 I love this seat. Very light. Very strong. Very comfortable. It is a bit stiff, but if you ride a lot you get used to it. The "love channel" or whatever it is called helps out in the comfort zone too - if you know what I mean.

I only buy WTB seats. They rock.

 If it fits your ass, just go get one. I kill products, and this one has gone a season and a half. The red stitching on the nose is GONE through thousands of miles of friction, and its staying together. At 175 lbs (in season), I have tremendous forces on my sit bones, so my saddle choice is huge. And Steve Peat runs one - What else do you need to know? I use mine for XC, and if I could afford it, there would be one on my road bike and the DH sled.

 Swietne siodlo! Uzywam najczesciej zima, bo latem to raczej SLR. Ale zima najbardziej lubie miec pod dupa wlasnie Rocket V Smile Jest tez dobre na naprawde dlugie wycieczki. Warte swej ceny.

 Had so many of these over the years and they've all been good. WTB seats consistently work, I don't now many people who don't like them.

 I can say that WTB Saddles have gone a long way and they are amazing if you are looking for value and performance.

 Best saddle I've ever ridden. Light and efficient on the uphill, but solid and comfortable on the downhill. Padding in all the right places (and I have a bony a$$).

 Excellent saddle, search no longer for the right saddle. The shape is perfect for long rides on road or mountain.

 I don't think you can go wrong with WTB's saddles. Just find the correct model for you and go with it. They're great.

 Very comfy seat, easy to get behind in the steeps, but you can still perch on the nose for some pedaling action.
