 I found this seat on a OEM deal for only $40, I didn't realize it was such a good deal! I would of bought several. This saddle is just a comfy as your thick cruiser seat, it stays out of the way when riding DH, and its super light = ]

 Extremely comfy. Looks hard a rigid, but the flex-tuned shell is really soft so it bends to your weight. The padding is significant, and the form is minimal so you can move around it easily (moving your ass behind the seat). Very light weight, highly recommended. I took the risk of buying without trying and I love it.

 When I got it free from a friend I was afraid it wouldn't be as comfy as the Speed V that it was replacing. TOTALLY wrong, it was actaully more comfy than the Speed V and just about .5lb ligher.

The only thing that some people complain about is that the material is "sticky" (holds onto fabric) but I like that since it keeps you planted to the seat when you need it.

Great saddle, might actaully buy one for my next bike Razz

 Very comfortable saddle with a great shape to amplify pedaling. It helps with those highly annoying and so very useless pressure points in the ass which makes using your bike a whole lot better.

 Actually, this is a recommendation NOT to buy this saddle. Rode it less than a season and the thing fell apart on a minor uphill fall. Otherwise was OK build/weight, but who wants to find themselves miles out without a saddle... I guess instead of R&D they put the money into celebrity endorsements. WTB, WTF?


P.S. replaced with a Chromag Moon DT. For a few extra grams the thing is bomber and I like the DH/AM shape better. It's easier to slip off the back and really lay back on a descent and still offers a long/wider nose for spinning a climb.

 Good, not as plush as the Rocket V or especially the Pure V but I love these for cyclocross. A little thin on padding but nothing to snag, makes remounts a breeze.

 Mine came custom on my Norco A-Line. Incredibly comfy but not over the top padding. Sweet! Works perfect on my DH rig, no need to change till it dies.

 A lot more comfortable than its thin profile suggests, perhaps because it is quite wide at the back. Nice and light with the satisfying flex of titanium rails.

WTB Silverado (MSRP $150) — The Silverado’s long, flat shape enables riders to utilize more of the nose while climbing, while the square profile distributes more weight onto the sit bones. This saddle uses a Flex-Tuned shell, Comfort Zone and DNA padding. The Silverado is the official saddle of ten-time DH world champion Nicolas Vouilloz. Narrow x long (133mm x 274mm) SLT = $150 Team = $130 Pro = $90
