Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained

WTB Aviator Saddle

The WTB Aviator saddle is a MTB saddle that is designed to perform during the downhill burns with a tough exterior that is going to survive the harshest of treatment. When the downhill maniac gets going there is every chance that things are going to end poorly and a lesser saddle is going to be ripped up almost every time. The Aviator is going to survive the big impacts and rough treatment.

The saddle cover of the Aviator is a synthetic material that is tough and is surrounded by a rubber strip to give the rider the maximum possible grip when tearing around corners. The rails are oversized 8mm and will also withstand the bumps while also giving the best possible ride. Padding on the seat comes from the Comfort Zone cut-out technology combined with a flex-tuned shell ensuring comfort during the longest of rides.

The dimensions of the Aviator find it coming in a little wider than comparable cross-country saddles and this is important for the rider who likes to move around a lot.

The WTB Aviator saddle is available in a couple of trims and price points model making it a little easier to make a selection. They are from most expensive to least: DH Race and Comp. The features and differences of each of the styles of the Aviator can be found at the bottom of the page.
