Bottom Line:   
I've ridden about 15000 miles on it and it is the best saddle I've used so far. I still get sore after about 30 miles, but even if I ride 70 I'm ok by the next day. (no residual soreness on bottom). I hate it when its time to kick ass, and your saddle has already done the job. But I'm still looking for a better saddle.

Strengths:    Size, weight, reflective material for safety

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I don't write many reviews but thought I'd offer one here. I've ridden LOTS of saddles: all the Fizik saddles, many Brooks saddles, Selle Italias galore, and this is my favorite saddle of all time. It's light and comfortable. While it may not have the most appealing aesthetics, it gets the job done very well. I've got several with the 3M reflective material in the back for added safety. I'm done tinkering with saddles and this will be the one I ride for many years to come.

Strengths:    Shape, durability, reasonable weight.

Weaknesses:    The cheap OEM ones are pretty good, but not as good as the aftermarket ones.

Bottom Line:   
I love WTB saddles. I do a ton of mountain biking, and road-ride as my cross-training. I use WTB Laser and Rocket V saddles on all my bikes. Good length, their padding is firm enough for a long ride, their "love channel" is enough, without being a gaping hole, the nose is long enough for climbing,and the flare at the rear of the saddle helps w/ power output without getting in the way when I need to move back.

WTB Rocket V SLR: Similar Road Saddle?

I have gotten a new road bike and am hoping to put an actual road saddle on it. I was originally a mountain biker only, and the WTB Rocket V SLR became my saddle of choice. I even used it on my old road bike for 3 years. Right now I'm in search of the right road saddle. So far I've tried the ... Read More »

Need a road saddle recommendation for a WTB Rocket V Mtbr.

I just got my first road bike and it came with a Selle Italia C2 Gel Flo which I thought would be good but it's hard as rocks on my sit bones. I come from a mountain biking background where I ride a WTB Rocket V and I don't even notice it's there it's so comfortable. I tried my friend's Sell ... Read More »
