WTB Rocket Race Saddle

Blast off.

We would never advocate acquiring a whole fleet of fancy bikes, from DH to enduro to XC to road, but if you happened to have a few more rides than strictly necessary, the WTB Rocket Race Saddle would be a killer choice for each and every one. Popular with riders of all stripes, the Rocket Team, which is lighter than the Comp and more affordable than the Pro, has anatomically-minded padding that's only used in key spots to reduce weight while preventing discomfort. It also features WTB's Flex-Tuned shell, which offers an ideal combination of suppleness and stiffness, providing support and efficiency at the same time. Even better, the Love Channel provides relief to sensitive areas, and the different width options let you find the perfect saddle for your anatomy, riding style, and preferred terrain.

Great MTB Saddle

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is probably the 5th or 6th WTB saddle I've bought. I have Laser V on 2 of my bikes and love them. This is the next iteration of that saddle and it's a great saddle for all types of MTB riding at a fair price. This went on my son's bike for XC Racing and all day epic rides and he loves it.

Nice Saddle

    I've been using this saddle for years. Like ski boots everyone needs something a little different when it come to bike seats. This is a great option.

    Relief

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The main reason I bought this saddle was to find a saddle that allowed me to push and also provide some relief to sensitive areas, since I was getting some numbness during steep climbs.

    This was just the answer to that. I love the whale tail that keeps you seated in the right position, allowing you to push trough. The padding is generous without being too much, it's a great balance between stiffness and padding.

    Finally, the relief channel works like a charm, again, it allows to do those steep climbs without needing to get up to bring some relief to sensitive areas, I can keep pushing and I won't get any numbness now, just what I wanted.

    Great all around saddle for pushing it in the bike, without being a pro.
