    WTB Rocket V Stealth Saddle

    I would like to upgrade the saddle on my 2004 Giant Cypress SX and am considering the WTB Rocket V Stealth Saddle. Any members using this saddle and care to share some feedback?

    I don't have any experience with that saddle. But check out the product reviews on mtbr.com
    Seems lots of people like the WTB saddles. I'm using a Terry Men's Liberator-no regrets after several years (but I've heard some who don't like it). But saddles are THE most individual preference item out there-what one likes, another may hate!
    Do you have a shop nearby that will let you try different saddles? Oh, and Terry has a 30 day money back guarantee if you don't like their product-not sure how it works-I didn't use it. Performance and Bike Nashbar, and Price Point have them on sale often. But do check out mtbr.com--you'll find lots of product reviews.

    Our LBS has a rather limited selection of saddles. I realize that choosing a saddle is an "up close and personal" decision. I have read some good reviews about the WTB Rocket V Stealth saddle and I will give it a try. Thanks for your advice.

    My Kona Blast mountain bike has the WTB Pure V Sport saddle which looks a lot like the one you're interested in. I like it but have no other point of reference as this is the only saddle I've used in recent memory.

    Definately try it. My speed pro came with a Rocket V and I loved it ... it was just a tad narrow for my female tush bones and since I'm partial to Brooks, I put on a Brooks Pro S.
