Strength:

It is pretty light-190g, looks Flashy, smooth-so it's easy to move about on.

Weakness:

Not Uber light-190g

I got the saddle to replace a heavier one that came stock with my Kestrel Talon, It took a few weeks to become accustomed to it, like any new saddle. I would recommend it as a cheap alternative to Selle Italia SLR.

Strength:

Inexpensive for a Ti Tubing railed saddle (light!).
Cover is waterproof.
SLR Shape.
Very well made for the price.

Weakness:

SLR Firmness.
You gotta get over that this (like many other brands) is made by Velo, but that's your problem and not the saddle's.

I found this saddle very comfortable after a short break-in period. It is very firm, but my sit-bones were perched over the less firm foam padding. The shape is flat so I was able to move around well and there is a small shallow channel to keep pressure off your nether region. Its shape is stolen from the Selle Italia SLR, which is a good thing if you fit that saddle.

I rode a flat century on this saddle after a two week lay-off from riding. I was surprisingly comfortable for most of those miles.

Strength:

Good price-value ratio Light weight and a decent amount of compliance Looks quite good

Weakness:

Seems to have worn relatively a lot (2000 km at time of writing)

Brought this a few months ago as I wanted a better saddle to replace the Selle Italia (?no idea what model - but heavy, with gel provided on my bike for racing. I was considering a Selle Italia SLR, but didn't want to go at the price required - this Serfas saddle seems virtually identical in shape design but was less than half the price (presumably does use cheaper materials as it is a bit heavier). I find it good on my typical sub-100 km rides, and criterium racing, but on longer and/or hilly rides I got pretty sore! Probably would say based on this that it works fine as a saddle, but definitely not as a seat... Not perfect, but I think it a pretty decent saddle. At least it doesn't have stiching in all the wrong places like my prior saddle!
