The goal was simple: Create a trail saddle that eclipsed the original WTB SST. The result features the best body-tuned shape WTB has. Hollow chromoly rails, Flex-tuned shell with Comfort Zone, synthetic cover and embroidered corners make the Pure V Race as comrfortable as it is good looking.
I'm a young guy, and my previous seat gave me back problems on 8+ mile rides. This seat is amazing. Right amount of cushion where you need it. I can ride all day on this thing and have no pain. The dropped nose is awesome for getting on and off the saddle when you need too. This saddle is a must for any mountain biker.
I love this saddle no need to wear riding shorts anymore I do 30 mile rides no problem
This is probably the best seat I've ever bought! Feel great and really comfy, for my mountain biking adventures!
I weigh 225 and rode this thing on an MS150 ride, 90 miles on Saturday and 77 on Sunday. Zero butt pain. Is there anything else you can say about a seat? Can it possibly serve any other purpose than to cushion your posterior? And for forty bucks? My buddy rode a $150 seat and had pain all the way. Who made the better choice? Buy this seat!
When I first decided to get back on a bike to get in shape I had a long struggle with getting a seat that worked for me. After going through about a dozen I finally came upon WTB and the Pure V. I was told by many people it's a good seat so I gave it a try. Heavenly! This was the first seat that didn't cause me to go numb. On top of that, it had just the right amount of padding for my bones to rest on. Many seats had too much padding and would cause additional numbness on my cheeks. The WTB Pure V fit about perfect in every way. My original Pure V Race has been in use for almost 3 years now and I have bought a Pure V FR for my downhill rig and another Pure V Race for my girlfriends bike because I've been so happy with them.
I did some research which pointed me to this saddle. I'm currently 6'3", 255 pounds and needed something more comfortable since the thinner race style saddles were causing me discomfort. I was getting numbness from the previous saddles I had, but the width of this one has really been good for extended rides. I don't even notice that it's there, which is a good thing.
i purchased this to replace a road saddle i was given for a mountain bike. the geometry of the saddle is a perfect fit. its very comfortable and allows me to ride fast and longer with no butt fatigue. excellent product!
I'm 225 and I ride this seat on both my bikes hard and long. I've never had one second of pain, chafing, or anything. I don't know why anyone would need a more expensive seat when this one does exactly what a seat should do. Comfort for a heavy ass on a long, rough ride. Can you ask any more?
This is a very nice seat! I bought another one for my other bike.
This seat is great, I'll put it on all my bikes.
