WTB Rocket V SLT Saddle

The Rocket V is WTB’s most popular high-performance saddle. Incredibly versatile, the Rocket V is used by Santa Cruz Syndicate downhill legend Steve Peat and long distance endurance champ Jay Petervary. The uniquely contoured pad shape helps increase power output by properly angling the sitz bones, meaning this saddle is not only comfortable but also makes you faster. Whether it’s a quick run down the park slopes or a 1000 mile endurance race, the Rocket V is the leading choice for those pushing the limits of the sport.

WTB Rocket V SLT Saddle Features

  • Comfort Zone — This cutout provides added comfort and reduced pressure in key areas
  • Love Channel — Central groove designed to relieve pressure on sensitive tissue
  • Flex-Tuned Shell — Nylon frame provides support and flexibility for added comfort
  • Whale Tail — The wale-tale scoop on the back of the saddle allows riders to scoot back and tilt the pelvis forward to improve pedaling leverage on race day and long rides
  • Rails: Titanium
  • Usage: Road or Mountain
  • Size: Narrow x Mid-length (127mm x 258mm)
  • Weight: Approx. 220g

      Comments about WTB Rocket V SLT Saddle:

      I've used the Rocket V on several bikes, and have never regretted it. I've tried other stock saddles on new bikes, and they never seem to fit right. The Rocket V is comfortable, lightweight, and is well served for long rides.

        Comments about WTB Rocket V SLT Saddle:

        I picked up an SLT saddle to replace the one on my Santa Cruz. The old one is from 2005, and is still in perfect shape except it looks a little worn on the exterior. No functional issues. This is used on a mountain bike. These are great saddles.

            I have loved the rocket V's for years. This one makes it that all my bikes have them now. Just FYI they do take some time to break in. Takes several rides to start getting comfortable. The more you use it, the better it feels.
            The V is made for very narrow sit bones. Make sure you get yours measured. WTB makes wider saddles.

              Comments about WTB Rocket V SLT Saddle:

              After trying number of saddles, this works for me. I had previously purchased WTB Rocket V Team. I liked it, so I bought another one. So I have Rocket V on both full-suspension as well as the hardtail.

              Since the fit of the saddle is very individual, my review is endorsing more of the quality of the WTB saddles.

              This one is bit off topic... but. I had bought WTB Silverado SLT, before I bought the second Rocket V to try out a different saddle. But I didn't like the feel of it as a mountain bike saddle. So, I put it on my road bike. And, it feels good there.

              Typical WTB quality saddle. Light but still well-shaped and supportive. Kind of firm, but that doesn't bother me. If you want something that is nice and soft to the touch, then look elsewhere.

                Have been using WTB Rockets for the last 2 years. This version rocks - looks good, feels even better. So good, you don't notice it. Highly recommended. This is my 2nd Rocket cos it's so good! After I tried it on my old XC bike, I stuck with the Rocket on my FR bike. Woudln't use any other - I even gave away a Fizik Gobi to use this WTB Rocket - it's that good!

                I have 5 rides on this saddle and it is growing on me with each one. My last ride was a 5 hour epic that was a mix of single track and fire road. At the end of ride I was as comfortable as at the beginning. I had the Laser prior and loved it. Unfortunately I destroyed it in a crash. Both take have a little breakin period but worth it.

                Comments about WTB Rocket V SLT Saddle:

                I have really enjoyed this saddle for the 1.5 years I've been riding it. It has been my do all saddle on my hardtail 29er. Have put about 1500 miles on this saddle; from training rides to cat 1-2 xc races to 6-8 hour endurance events, this saddle has treated me right. There is just enough padding to make a hardtail slightly more comfortable, but not so much that you feel like you're losing power wallowing in the seat. I love it. ONly downfall is that it comes in one width, which is very narrow. I would normally ride a 143mm width saddle and I believe this is closer to a 135mm width. Either way it has worked, and not caused me any discomfort. Also, it has been very durbale, after 1500 miles there are no loose seems or other flaws.
