Not many bike components can pull duty across road, XC, all-mountain, and enduro disciplines, but the WTB Volt Comp Saddle with Steel Rails is one of the few that can. By borrowing features from other WTB saddles, the Volt manages to be comfortable and cost effective at the same time, no matter where you're riding. The steel rails provide a solid platform, while the synthetic cover is comfortable and durable and the padding protects sensitive spots by strategically supporting your anatomy. The Volt also features WTB's Flex-Tuned shell, which is not as supple as the Soft Shell but not as firm as the Carbon Composite, giving you a precise but comfortable platform that takes you from the trail to the road and back.

  • A versatile perch for road, mountain, 'cross, or gravel
  • Shell built with medium support for endurance comfort
  • Targeted flex damps singletrack and gravel chatter
  • Steel rails are the reliable standby for high-abuse cycling

great basic saddle

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this saddle to replace a terribly stiff one on an older bike. It is a basic, comfortable option for someone who doesn't need top of the line super techy mumbo jumbo in their saddle.

WTB Volt Comp Saddle

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great inexpensive saddle. It is comfortable and is durable.

agreeable saddle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the saddle that comes stock on a lot of bikes for good reason. It won't blow you away with light weight or fancy features, but it tends to be comfortable for most people and is solid quality. One of my MTB's came with this saddle and I was never amazed nor annoyed by it. No complaints here.

Does the job

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Is this the best saddle on the market, no. But is it the best saddle you can get for under $50. YES!! So if that is your targer price point then this is the saddle for you.

Great saddle at a great price

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These saddle is actually really killer... especially for how inexpensive it is. I picked this up to put on my bike that I have inside on a trainer. The previous one (I think from the 70's) was killing me. This seat is really comfy and seems like it's going to stand the test of time.

Need a comfortable saddle at a great price point? This is my go to. For shorter rides and around town, I have been very happy with this saddle choice. Want to upgrade? Check out the different rail options with the same saddle comfort

Awesome budget option

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This saddle is a bit heavy compared to a lot of the blinged out carbon and ti rail saddles out there nowadays, however, none of those can compete with the WTB Volt. Super comfortable, great shape, and very inexpensive.

Working Man's/Woman's Seat

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a sucker for spending ridiculous amounts of money on bike parts to make my bike as rad as possible. Recently I had a build where I was more concerned with value and function than being flashy, so I made the responsible choice and went with this value workhorse of a saddle. It has the signature design and comfort found in the other WTB saddles, but is made out of much more affordable materials. As a result it's definitely not very light weight, but it's durable, affordable, and comfortable.

Looking to keep your build fancy and light? I would recommend one of WTB's higher-end offerings, I have the volt pro on one of my other bikes and love it (same saddle, just lighter and therefore more expensive). Looking to get a decent seat without breaking the bank? This is a great option.

Comfort on a budget

    If you're looking here you probably don't want to pay out the @$$ to save your buns. This saddle isn't saving weight, but it is saving other things that are more important, such as dollars and the rear. If these are your concerns, this is your answer.


      You're going to spend a lot of time in the saddle getting to where you can stand up and truly enjoy your bike. Make sure you don't hate that time and get a saddle that works for you. This is my choice because its comfortable and I can stand (I really mean sit) it.

      Not too shabby

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought this saddle to replace a stock one on a hybrid bike. I've taken it on 15-20 mile rides and I found it pretty comfortable. Definitely not the saddle you're looking for if you're shaving grams, but it seems pretty solid and should last for a while.

      Bomber Saddle

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I put this on my bar bike and it's perfect for easy rides, slightly bulky if you are looking to save some ounces. If you are commuting long distances you may want something lighter but it is pretty cushy.

      sit on it

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      aside from being slightly heavy this saddle is a bang for the butt. Also quite durable ive run this saddle for a full season and looks good still.

      Better on the downhill

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      The saddle feels way more comfortable on the downhill than the uphill. I think I need to just get used to it and break it in.

      A Little Heavy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Good shape. Comfortable. Just a little heavy for cross country riding.

      Pretty sweet budget saddle

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      This seat is perfect for a downhill/freeride build. Its not horrible if you want to climb a little but definitely a great seat. I would recommend those who are using it for road/cross country/all mountain purposes i would suggest going with a wide.

      Just put it on my Transition Bottle Rocket and looks sweet.

      Weak speck for such an expensive build

        Not sure why you would spec this with a XT build kit. Really cheap.
