Strengths:    This saddle is marketed as "ergonomic" with an open section midline to relieve pressure and prevent numbness in the soft tissues.

Weaknesses:    Stitched panels on the upholstery are not "square" on the frame, but the underlying gel support is perfectly aligned. This is merely cosmetic and doesn't affect fit.

Chrome Moly rails have a black finish. I prefer the titanium rails on the Bontrager -- light, but also rust free. The Serfas rails are black finish, not sure what sort of finish it is.


Bottom Line:   
I bought this saddle after reading about "cutaway" designs and after years of riding with numbness.

Here's a nice link for discussion:

I'll come back to this review as I put miles on this saddle.
