WTB Pure V Race SE Saddle
Legendary freeriders Wade Simmons and Thomas Vanderham worked with WTB to develop the ultimate mountain bike saddle, and then passed its perfectly formed and padded goodness on to the masses. Behold the WTB Pure V Race SE saddle. Worry not about comfort as there's a Love Channel to provide essential soft tissue relief, a Comfort Zone cut-out window in the shell to deliver additional relief, plus a Flex-Tuned shell for the perfect happy medium between comfortable flex and firm efficiency. The drop nose design prevents hang ups when the terrain demands getting quickly in and out of the saddle and exercising a bit of body english. The distinctive, rising whale-tail feature provides something to push against when the trail turns steep and makes it easy to find the saddle's sweet spot when first jumping on it.
  • Flex-Tuned shell with Comfort Zone provides lightweight support and disperses your weight for a comfort
  • Padded drop nose design allows for steeper saddle angles, forward climbing positions, easier transitions and a reduction in snagging shorts
  • Love Channel and DNA padding protect from unwanted pressure
  • Ergonomic shape gives you better pedal leverage when you're cranking out maximum power
  • Durable, synthetic cover with reinforced edges to resist abrasion
  • Chromoly rails offer strength without the extra weight

      Comments about Wilderness Trail Bikes WTB Pure V Race SE Saddle:

      Used on two med length MTB rides, one had a 3 mile cat 3 climb and the seat was not a issue. I was surprised that the seat is slightly padded. I do like the padding, I notice it at the start of the ride and then do not give it a second thought. I always hate buying a new saddle, but I am glad that I purchased this one. I probably looked at 50 saddles before I decided to purchase this one. It was on sale and was a very good value

        Comments about Wilderness Trail Bikes WTB Pure V Race SE Saddle:

        Bought it to replace the stock seat on a used bike I just purchased. It's an upright sitting bike (cafe style road bike) and the WTB Pure Race V saddle was so comfortable, I bought a another one for my "regular" road bike with curved handlebars and skinny tires. It works great on that bike as well. Before I replaced by old saddle on the road bike, I was getting chaffing issues even in my best shorts. It wasn't that the shorts were getting worn out, it was my old saddle that got too old and lost its supportive function. The new WTB saddle is working very well. I no longer stay away from longer rides (40-50 milers).

          Best seat in 20+ years of riding mountain bikes, gravel, and rail trails on a cross bike. Very comfortable! And it's priced at less than half what I've paid for high-end brand seats.

              I now have WTB Pure V Race on 5 bikes. Did my share of a 4 man 24 hr mtb race on another saddle and wore through to the blood. This year rode my Pure V for 12 hrs (100 + miles in the woods), and no problems. Most of our crew rides these, and all are happy. My old one developed cracks after about 3 years, but it had a different cover. If in doubt and not a real weight weenie ... buy it.

                  I was worried that the saddle would have too much padding and cause discomfort on rides over 20 miles. So far I've not had any problems with the saddle and I like it, but I've only put on about 150 miles.

                    This is the second one I have bought. I won't say it is comfortable - in my opinion there is no such thing as a comfortable bike saddle but this one is certainly tolerable. Sufficient padding without being too heavy and a great simple cover that I believe will prove to be durable. I like it -

                      I have only had this saddle on a handful of rides but I will say it felt great from day one. I replaced the stock saddle which was like riding on a 2x4 for 1500 miles. THe comfort is superb on this one once fatigue sets in. Best saddle I ever rode, only time will tell how it holds up. Nashbar had a very low price on this which made the purchase easy.

                        I'm retired, ride 30+ miles 4 times/week.I dread buying a new saddle - too often they aren't a good match to my butt so I intended to buy another Nashbar comfort saddle with which I have no complaints. My old one lasted 8+ years and 12,000 miles. A good saddle for me. But when I saw the WTB Race I decided to try it. Love it. No fancy design panels to shed, chafe or pull apart. Dense foam is sufficient but not overkill. I carried my old saddle in a rack trunk on my first ride in case I started to blister but no problem. For me this is the perfect saddle and today I'm ordering a spare.

                          great saddle. I love my wtb pure v comp and thought the race would be a lighter. The race has slightly less padding, otherwise very similar to comp. The cover on the comp seems more durable too. I like the add'l padding, but this is a good saddle too. 4 stars race, 5 stars comp
