WTB Rocket V SLT Saddle 2014

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

Lightweight Durable Off Road Perch
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!

PROS: Light, Durable, Comfortable

BEST USES: Fr, XC, Am, DH, Trail

Good Mid-Priced Saddle
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.

PROS: Weight, Shape, Overall Comfort

CONS: A Tad Firm

Great Saddle
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.

PROS: Very light and stylish, Comfortable Performance

CONS: None yet

Best Saddle I've Used
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.

PROS: Good Padding, Lightweight

Light, durable and comfortable
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.

PROS: Comfortable, Durable, Stylish, Light Weight

CONS: One size only

BEST USES: XC, all mountain

quality, comfortable 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.

PROS: Good Padding, Lightweight

BEST USES: Long Rides, Mountain Biking, All Around
