RL Vs. Sette DH Strike Saddle

Main Mountain Biking Nonsense

When you take a husky rider like me and do something like this…

With a seat like this…the Sette Strike DH Saddle…

Then I don’t quite land the right way…

You’ll end up with a seat like this…

When I landed, I went one way, the bike went the other. Luckily, I hit my thigh…not my nuts. But the Sette seat acted like a crumple zone and absorbed my weight…Poor saddle, that was my first and last ride with it.

  1. Must be a fat unco blimp they have cro-mo 8mm rails have had one for 14mths on a dirt jump bike. I have had plenty bad landings have twisted the seat post plenty and the back of the saddle is torn quite a bit but the rails are still straight. Comfortable good on long rides and cheap as chips and can take some punishment for the money it gets 8 / 10. You can easily bend a $160 saddle if you land on it the wrong way
