    Strengths:    Just set it (level) and forget it

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    The only thing that really matters, this saddle feels great. As many riders have stated before I came along, this saddle just disappears beneath me. I don't even think about it. This is the perfect perch for my backside. I'm light weight 120 lbs. My skinny a$$ likes this saddle.

    Strengths:    Just right amount of padding.

    Weaknesses:    None so far

    Bottom Line:   
    Originally purchased a Ritchey Streem but after a month of use it was just too harsh and too narrow. Went to purchase this saddle in my LBS but it was the wrong (128mm) size. I was able to feel that the Bontrager saddle was softer and better designed than the Ritchey. Found same saddle online but at the 146mm width, bought it, installed it and it practically disappeared beneath me. The difference was night and day. My riding improved solely because I wasn't focused on my down under area hurting. The Ritchey flexes in the middle of the seat, the Bontrager R doesn't. The Ritchey has minimal padding, the Bontrager has more but not excessive. Just enough to make my back end very happy. Glad I bought it and I would definitely recommend it.

    Strengths:    Comfortable, does what I needed it to, act like a seat.

    Weaknesses:    Nothing specific. Would be nice to get real leather instead of synthetic but you get what you pay for.

    Bottom Line:   
    Took a little bit of time to adjust the seat angle, height but once I got it all set this saddle was very comfortable. Not much padding but the flex in the seat seems to make up for that. The rails could be a little stiffer but being 6'4' and 200 lbs I am used to stuff flexing on me.

    Strengths:    Looks cool

    Weaknesses:    the pain mostly....

    Bottom Line:   
    WOW! For something that came straight off one of the best roadbikes ever made.... this sure is a terrible saddle.
    I may have gotten the wrong size, but from the one I have, it's super uncomfortable and super hard.

    Weaknesses:    Comfort

    Bottom Line:   
    This thing is like a rock pressing in all the wrong places. The top is too rounded. It presses on the peritoneum. Just plain painfull. Went to shop that has Specialized certified BG fitting. Fitted for Toupe Team which is wonderful!
