Saddle shape "propels" you forward, I literally feel faster with this saddle.. Comfortable enough for the long rides. Stitching on the front of the saddle provides good traction when doing technical climbs.
Bit heavy. Not my first choice for an epic ride. CroMo rails need to be tweaked occasionally
Bottom line: This is an excellent saddle for the money. I have had several over the years and continue to be impressed.
