Strength:

The saddle is very firm and wide. The saddle rides on an elastomer suspension system that definately helps up the comfort. The carbon rails make this a lightweight ride. I have not experienced any numbness or pain "down there" as a result of this saddle. If you have wider sit bones, this saddle seems to provide balanced support.

Weakness:

The carbon rails are nice for lightness, but I can't comment on their durability yet. There is no cutout, so numbness could be a possibility for some. If I break a rail or something I will certainly ammend this review.

I bought this saddle to replace a Selle Italia Max Flite Gel Flow saddle b/c it was getting soft after a couple years. The main issue that developed with the cutout saddle is that it was eating my crotch on long rides. I wanted a wide, supportive saddle for my 205lb frame but I also didn't want one that weighed as much as a pull-out couch.
