Had one before on my giant reingn for one season and I was able to make long rides without performance shorts. Sold it with the bike. This is my second one but the pictured one was all black but the one that arrived was black and chrome. Called Jenson USA and they gave me a $10. credit, so that worked out, no complaint. Something you should know if using for downhilling. I get brused on my inner thighs going behind the saddle from the wide whale tail.

Not bad for the price, but I like a softer seat. I will use this until I can justify buying something softer.

    Comments about WTB Pure V Race Saddle:

    Had this on my XC hardtail for 4+ seasons now. Rails are still straight and the padding has held up without complaint. Comfortable for even 3+ hour rides. Can't complain about the weight either for the price.

      Comments about WTB Pure V Race Saddle:

      I have been using this saddles for many years. The saddles is extra wide for comfort but not too wide that you are unable to slide back on steep drops. I have used several more expensive saddles over the years but this is my all time favorite.

        Comments about WTB Pure V Race Saddle:

        Replaced old squeeky Specialized body geometry, and this saddle is totally quiet and much more forgiving in similar dimensions. Helps out on the long rides and no longer feels like I'm being punished for riding.

        My preferred saddle for long rides

        Best Uses

          Comments about WTB Pure V Race Saddle:

          For longer rides I like the Pure V saddle by WTB. Sure, it's a few grams heavier than many others but it worth it! The center groove eliminates numbeness and the leather is tough enough to take on a fair number of crashes.

          Comments about WTB Pure V Race Saddle:

          I have had this saddle for a few years now. It has been pure satisfaction to me.
          The soft wings give a nice comfortable peddling platform and is long enough in the nose to slide forward for the climbing efforts.
          Mine is starting to show signs of wear, but after so long I think it should. I have ridden saddles that are easier to move around on but for prolonged comfort, for me, this can't be beat.

            I'm on my second one of these and I still have my old one as a spare. Using the newest one on a Soma Analog hardtail and this saddle smooths out the ride and looks good doing it.

              mainly on my ss mtb...that bike is gone now along with the saddle.
              solid saddle that put up with a lot of dirt and winter riding
              at times the rails were a bit noisy...probably a dynamic of rainy days...nothing a little grease couldn't cure
