High Tail it down the trail.
As bikes get more and more travel-happy, components and accessories
have to evolve to keep up. Saddles, though, are largely immune to
changing bike design — a seat's a seat, right? WTB disagrees, and so
it teamed up with Chris Cocalis, the founder of Pivot Cycles, and Dave Weagle, inventor and namesake of the DW-Link suspension, to designed the High Tail Pro Saddle specifically to accommodate
long-travel bikes that might otherwise buzz your saddle when the
suspension is fully compressed.
By shortening the saddle to 255mm and including a rear cut-out, WTB made sure the High Tail won't get buzzed on bikes with compact rear frames, big wheels, and plush suspensions. A shorter tail
makes it easier to get your weight off the back when you're descending, and WTB's signature DNA padding and responsive-but-comfortable Flex-Tuned shell provide personalized and high-quality comfort.
While the High Tail was made with DH and enduro riding in mind, it's
light and comfortable enough to work as a trail, XC, or even road saddle, so don't
hesitate to throw it on your ride of choice.

Great DH Seat
I bought this for my DH bike and it works great. The cut out on the back makes it easy to adjust your seat without worrying about tire buzz.
Supportive Functional Shape
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Installed on my Transition Patrol. Not the lightest but the shape seems supportive/comfortable so far which is the most important aspect of a saddle.
