Category: Close Contact Saddles

Purchase: Purchased as a first saddle for NZ$850

Likes: Easy change gullet system is great, (okay my dad changed it for me but it didn't look too difficult :D) being equileather (synthetic) saddle stays looking brand new (still looks brand new after three years). Easy to maintain good balance, doesn't throw you forward like some others I have ridden in.

Dislikes: No real dislikes about the saddle, it is good to ride in and easy to maintain, but obviously for the price paid and the fact that it is synthetic its not really a status symbol on the show circuit. Nevertheless, a great saddle.

Quality: Seems to be great. Never seems to look worn even after 2-3 years. Construction seems sound, no problems thus far.

Summary: Great saddle for the price, seems structurally sound, still looks brand new and is comfortable to ride in. Easy change gullet system a real plus.
