Model/Year: Rocket V

Pros: Fits my sit bones

Cons: Titanium rails will break. 2nd time I've had a WTB saddle that has failed. Unsure if I will ever buy another one. They didn't support the last one that failed. Have pics of the rail that broke. When you pay that much for a saddle, should last more than a year

Pros: Brand Quality Price ($26 @ REI on sale)

Cons: None

Recommendation: feels great. Can't wait to put some miles on this saddle. The turned up back portion of the saddle feels great. Should feel super while climbing.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Good value
Great Fit
Like lip on the back of the saddle for good balance & control

Cons: Rails bent after crash

Recommendation: Disappointed after bent rails but WTB treated me great and replaced the saddle although crashes do not fall under warranty.

Pros: Light for the amount of padding on board.

Cons: Love it or hate it shape. The whale tail just doesn't feel right for me.

Recommendation: Try this one out before you buy it. That goes for any saddle but ESPECIALLY this one. The scooped rear began to annoy me on longer rides and really didn't do much to take pressure off my underparts any more than a properly fitting and broken in saddle without the extra padding and whale tail. Well made, just a bad personal fit; hence the 3 rating.

Pros: very lightweight with a titanium rail, nice looking design, durable materials, great peddling platform, V groove helps reduce preasure down under so you can stay in the saddle

Cons: not as soft as my Pure V, but that to be expected due to its design and target group. Will set you back a pretty penny. Find it on sale like I did.

Recommendation: very happy with the saddle so far.

Pros: wieght, styling, stiched embroidery, climbing platform increases power. size. taint saver.

Cons: cost

Recommendation: I have the SLT which ios a bit lighter having the tinanium rails, but its the same seat otherwise. I just converted over to this one from the Pure V for a stronger power platform, weight, and durability. Very happy so far. Just wish it was cheaper.

Pros: Fit & finish, weight.

Cons: just didn't feel right compared to my sella italia flight and specialized avatar. It's only about 1/2" shorter, but I notice the difference when riding. The cushion is thicker in the back. It's like a door stop- holds you in place. I'm used to sliding forward/backward very often.

Recommendation: Good saddle. But not for me.
