Pros: Light Stays out of the way

Cons: Not the most comfortable seat

Recommendation: As far as seats go this is suitable. It hasn't given my ass too many problems. It's not the most comfortable seat I've used, but then again it is a bike seat.

Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Light, looks good

Cons: Padding in the wrong places, not very comfy for the long haul

Recommendation: This is a big improvement on the lower end Evokes, but it's still pretty bad and pretty uncomfortable; it's very easy to do better.

Pros: Light

Cons: Uncomfortable, non-flexing, useless padding

Recommendation: No. Just no. I've given these saddles a whole lot of chances, but every time I ride them I feel like I'm riding on a rock - not comfortable in the slightest.

Pros: Looks okay, light enough

Cons: Feels horrible

Recommendation: I have never liked any of Bontrager's Evoke saddles, no matter how hard I try. They're decent enough that I don't realize how bad they are until I ride on a well-designed saddle for awhile, then as soon as I go back to the Evoke it feels like sitting on a rock.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Looks good

Recommendation: This is a good entry level saddle that is comfortable and easy on the pocket book. It came standard on my 2013 trek marlin. The only reason I took it off was I got a titanium rail Evoke 3 for a very good price.

Pros: Light weight
looks good

Cons: None

Recommendation: This is a good comfy seat. I picked it up used for $25 so it is a very good deal at that price indeed!
