Naked WTB Rocket V Stealth Review

Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Saddles. We spend most of our time on them, but neglect to give them a lot of thought until they hurt.

I love the WTB Rocket V saddle. I have them on all my bikes (except my road bike). I've been using them exclusively for about three years.

When you spend 24 hours on a bike racing, your saddle NEEDS to be comfortable. Racing for that long, you'll not be able to think about anything other than how sore your arse is when you have an uncomfortable saddle. Fortunately for me, I've never had that problem using this saddle.

I dig the grooved out, contoured centre.

Titanium rails - keeps the weight down low. Leather sides make it easy to get off the saddle or slide back when coming into a technical section. Never a rip or a tear in any of the many I've owned.

Wide enough in the back, even for a fat ass like me!

Naked bike gear reviews . . . . you know where to find them.

For dog's sake, put some clothes on. You do not want to get into a "who can be naked more often battle with me." I'm undefeated.

And that's not a bruise. I'll send you a picture of a bruise.

I didn't know that you were so competitive Peter!
Send me a naked picture and one of your bruise and I'll post it!
Let the nakedness commence!

Will do. I think a theme may be emerging for your race team plans for next season.
