    Strengths:    Real leather and good looking.

    Weaknesses:    Not as comfortable as expected. Actually kind of hard.

    Bottom Line:   
    First, received saddle in a ziplock bag inside another USPS envelope! Company claims they were trying to save me $5 on shipping and handling. Like I care when buying a $200 saddle. No instructions on how to replace or adjust the rubber cushions. Had to get those emailed separately. Still not sure if the saddle feels hard because instructions are not clear to me as to how to adjust saddle. Overall, I don't recommend spending $200 for this saddle.

    Strengths:    Elastomer shock absorbers work a treat and DON'T pop out. LEATHER cover NOT plastic. Comfortable and durable.

    Weaknesses:    The leather cover can stain.

    Bottom Line:   
    Saw it reviewed on here and thought I'd give it a try. I've had my PRS for over a year now and it's performed faultlessly. The cover is leather, not plastic (as a previous uninformed reviewer said), and the elastomer shock absorbers don't pop out unless you install them incorrectly.

    I would rate this saddle a little higher in the comfort stakes than the fizik Arione it replaced, and the Selle saddle before that. It allows me to slide onto it without catching on the nik's material.

    Overall - a great saddle that I will be keeping a looooong time.

    Strengths:    Comfortable
    Not hard to adjust to.
    Can comfortable sit in different positions for different terrain and climbing.


    Weaknesses:    Cost. I spent $150 for a 2nd.

    Bottom Line:   
    After beginning another season with pain in the behind, I decided to try a Koobi saddle, especially because I am building up to a century this year. The saddle is very comfortable, and even when it hurts (which is rare) it hurt only on the sides of your backside, and does not affect you off the bike. A great improvement over all the other saddles I have tried, which are many. I am about to bite the bullet to put another one of these on another bike.

    Strengths:    Good comfortable long distance saddle.

    Weaknesses:    Poor design of the whole Elastomer locating system...the junky grey plastic covers along with cheap carbon screws...rust easily don't seem to fit with this quality saddle.
    They must think we don't ride in the rain?
    At over two hundred dollars it needs better quality hardware.
    I contacted the manufacturer about the plastic covers breaking and the rusty screws...they didn't appear to be that anxious to help.Kinda blamed me.


    Bottom Line:   
    I ride about 5,00km/year
    Had the Koobi PRS Alpha for two years..it works pretty good and is comfortable for me.However it is not as well made as some others....The junky grey plastic covers that have to be pried off to access the screws for changing the Elastomers..break at the slightest contact...the screw are really Cheap Carbon Allen Heads which rust up immediately...The Elastomers do not seat properly and can pop out unless glued in. really like the saddle to ride with...but feel for this price that stainless screws are in order ...and that a redesign on the grey covers is long overdue.

    Traded my Koobi PRS in for a Specialized Romin saddle

    I know, I know... Saddles are a personal preference but... Had to give the Specialized Romin two big thumbs up! I've been using Koobis for the last dozen years but had been getting a bit numb after 30 miles on the new bike. After fiddling around trying to get it "dialed in" I was still having issues ...
