Strengths:    comfortable, pressure relieving
cheap: for the price of one aliante you can purchase ten years worth of contours.

Weaknesses:    Not as durable as a Brooks, I'm sure, but for the price it's a disposable part.

Bottom Line:   
Comfortable for those of us with medium to wide sitbones who need perineal relief. Inexpensive: often on sail for about $20. I've ridden this on numerous 3 to 5 hour rides over the last sixteen months since I bought it and have not had a single discomfort in my nether region.

Strengths:    Price is great; comfort; reflective strips on the back

Weaknesses:    A little heavy

Bottom Line:   
This seat is a bit heavy, around 370g, but it is quite comfortable even with its beefier foam. On my normal bike I ride with a saddle that has very little foam. The contour's foam is dense enough, although it hasn't been ridden a lot, to feel good and the cutout is perfect. I felt good on it from the beginning, which is not how I feel with many others.
