I bought this for my Santa Cruz Blur mountain bike to replace the heavy stock WTB rocket V. The WTB has a lot more padding so I wasn't expecting anything soft and comfy. After a few rides, I have to say that the Cutter saddle is MUCH better than the WTB. I don't get any of the sore spots that I used to get. Reaffirms that shape is more important than the amount of cushion. The only issue I have is that the saddle is "stickier" than the WTB. My shorts seem to drag more on the seat causing some friction on my tender areas. FYI, I don't use chamois or liners. Just my shorts and my unmetionables.
