    Not for anyone over 80kg. Or with a Hugh Jazz.

    Pros
    Good fit.
    Plush for a minimal saddle.
    Light.

    Cons
    Rails bent after several inadvertent full-weight sit-downs on local drops.

    The Volt is *much* more comfortable. The Silverado by comparison was a major disappointment

    Pros
    Nicely made
    Looks great
    Light

    Cons
    Very hard - ridiculously so. An arse anvil.
    3 hours was enough. Had to stand after that, and treat the hotspots with a steroid cream when I got home to avoid getting saddle sores. Just as well I don't have to piss in a cup after racing around here, or I'd be in trouble.

    As a minimally padded and narrower saddle that is light weight, it probably works great for lighter weight riders. I am at around 212 Lbs with gear. For me, this saddle just did not have enough padding for the longer rides. My bottom was too uncomfortable with this one.

    Very hard when brand new, and it does soften up after some usage. It just was not enough for my behind.

    I swapped this to another saddle from my other bike (WTB Pure V) and the difference was night-and-day.

    Pros
    Light weight, well built, comfortable for some riders.

    Cons
    Light on the padding, narrower than some other saddles.

    I run this saddle on my Trail bike (SLT) with Ti rails and on the DH bike (PRO). The SLT model comes in at 208gr and the PRO model comes in at 245gr. The Silverado looks good and feels good, I would defiantly be buying this saddle for my future bikes.

    Pros
    Comfy, fits me well.
    Good looking.
    Light (SLT model)

    Cons
    None

    I love this saddle! I have been riding on this saddle for 4 years almost year round in the most inclement weather on the most technical double/single track throughout New England most in southern NH. This saddle is still without a tear or week spot. The lettering has worn off, but it is still soft and solid. This seat was first deemed "the nut cruncher" until I dipped the nose down a bit and now it is the most comfortable.
    This saddle offers many different riding positions with its length allowing you to scoot up for climbs and hang over the back of on DHs.

    Pros
    - Light weight
    - Has aged very well
    - Very low profile
    - Narrow and long
    - Firm and comfortable

    Cons
    - As stated in other reviews the lettering does rub off quickly.

    For the price of the lower models, this is a nice saddle. Light and ages decently well. Just be sure you don't need a to move around a LOT on your bike or you might prefer the WTB Devo with the shorter nose instead.

    Pros
    Thin and stiff while still being compliant around the taint. The leather ages well and has stayed soft.

    Cons
    Purely cosmetic, but the lettering on the leather wears off pretty quickly. Also, the length of the saddle can snag baggies at times making it a bit of a pain to get behind the seat on DHs.

    Use it as a road bike saddle, it cannot handle trails

    Pros
    WTB has kept good on their warranties. The warranty person is extremly nice, and look forward to riding my new Pure V with Cromoly Railes

    Cons
    keeps breaking, Since December 2011 I have broken 2. First one 4 months and the second 2 days.

    A little hard when it's brand new, but it gets a little softer when you clock some time on it. Great saddle!

    Pros
    Very light weight, narrow saddle. Flat for distributing pressure on the sit bones. Makes for a great "Sit-down-and-crank-uphill" seat. Very sturdy build. Good leather material.

    Cons
    none

    This is a great saddle. I've had one for 3 years. I also own a RocketV, which I like, but the Silverado is better. My only complaint, the nose is a little too long, it'll sometimes catch on my shorts. Very rarely happens though, not enough to look for another saddle.

    Pros
    Comfy, light, narrow

    Cons
    Nose is a little too long.

    Great XC saddle. Almost exactly the same width and length as the WTB Rocket V without the extra padding and whale tail.

    Pros
    Light, slender, and stiff without being unforgiving. Would be comfortable if used as an all day road saddle as well.

    Cons
    No complaints. Have only been using it for about 3 months so I will post an update later if anything is found.
