Strength:

Noticeably comfortable where it should be, not noticeable at all where it shouldn't be. Low price compared to other TT saddles.

Weakness:

The wide nose takes a little getting used to and might be a little too weird-feeling for some.

This is my first season TTing and my first season training on a TT-specific bike. This saddle is also my first TT-specific saddle - up 'til now I'd been using the same model saddle I have on my road bike - the Terry Fly. Compared to the Terry, this saddle kicks butt - actually, it doesn't kick my butt, which is what makes it so nice! I've got about 200 miles in the saddle so far, with no complaints on rides up to 3 hrs long. The nose is longer, wider, and more padded than my previous saddle and all of that makes for a much more comfortable ride when I'm in my aero position. The cut out is also nicely positioned so that there's no pressure on my perineum when I'm leaning forward, which was an issue when I tried other, non-cut out TT saddles. The added width in the nose took some getting used to - a friend describes it as feeling a little like you're sitting on someone's fist. Hey, I don't care what it feels like, as long as it also feels comfortable! The neoprene cover is also very nice - compared to my previous leather-covered saddle, I don't slide around as much when I'm really pumping out the watts.

Strength:

ample padding on the nose
neoprene
ventilated cutout

Weakness:

a bit heavier than my old saddle
i can see the embroidery on the back of the saddle rubbing into my shorts after a long time

I have only put about 40 miles on this saddle. I only bought this because the saddle i have been using is a bit rough on the sensitive parts while in aero position, and the price was right. i could tell during the first ride that my old saddle was too wide for my sit bones as this one is noticeable narrower. the extra padding in the nose is also a nice touch. once set up correctly, this saddle has been very comfortable and i can see myself using it for tri's as well as my daily riding. i will update once i have more miles put into this saddle
