Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained

Ritchey WCS Contrail Saddle

The Ritchey WCS Contrail saddle is a road bicycle saddle making use of superlight foam and a narrow carbon fiber injection shell for a saddle that is performance driven as well as comfortable. Built into the saddle is the company’s patented Vector Wing design to dissipate pressure more evenly.

When comparing the Contrail saddle to the other saddles in the Ritchey range it is slightly shorter and more padded than the Streem.

The WCS version of the Contrail saddle is the top of the range saddle out of the three available Contrails with Chromium/Titanium rails and a micro fiber cover. This makes the WCS the lightest and most expensive of the saddles in this range.

So why would someone want to buy the WCS Contrail over, say, the Streem? Price might be one reason because the Contrail costs around $40 less than the Streem. Another reason may be for comfort reasons due to the slightly smaller dimensions of the Contrail which could suit the butt a little better.

Here are a few of the comments that customers who have bought and used the Ritchey WCS Contrail saddle have left on various sites online. In an attempt to provide a balanced view I have tried to find both positive and negative comments about the saddle.

" Just got this saddle on my cannondale super six after experimenting with Fizik Antares and Arione. NO comparison this is super stable and comfortable and outstanding value for money. Im adding this saddle to my other bike."
