Selecting the perfect mountain bike saddle usually involves balancing the trade-off between comfort and weight. Super lightweight saddles often feel worse than metal folding chairs while really comfy seats are generally wide,...
Pros: Light, sweet looking, and comfortable. Great flex for extra comfort going over the rough stuff.
Cons: I'm loving this saddle.
Recommendation: I've ridden about 60 miles on this saddle and I'm loving it. Sleek saddle that is much more comfortable than you may expect from such a slim, light saddle. The gel and the flex of the saddle and rails keeps you comfortable through all conditions. Easy on and off the saddle through climbs and descents. And let's not ignore that fact that it just looks great on a bike!!
Pros: Super lightweight and comfortable, even on epic XC slogs. Sleek profile and solid rails.
Cons: May be a bit narrow for some.
Recommendation: Just looking at this saddle may hurt your ass but the SLR XC Gel is surprisingly comfortable. Not overly bulky, the gel rides like it's twice as thick as it actually is. The white version lets other riders know you're all business.
