Bicycle Saddles Examined and Explained

WTB Rocket V Saddle

The WTB Rocket V saddle is a versatile saddle that is just as suited for road riding as for mountain bikes. Apart from the versatility of the saddle, the comfort factor that is built in ensures that it is the most popular saddle in the WTB range. Where this saddle differs from some of the others in the road and MTB range is in the saddle’s dimensions. Not only is it a very lightweight saddle but it is smaller in both width and length making it compact.

The comfort that is built into the Rocket V comes from some of the standard WTB innovations such as the “Love Channel” and Flex-tuned Comfort Zone dual density shell. The Love Channel is a pressure relief groove that is sliced out of the shell to alleviate possible pain points and the surface of the saddle is firm without feeling too hard.

The saddle is shaped in a sweeping curve that dips down at the nose and flares up at the tail to provide the rider with a power platform from which to work. It is also padded in strategic areas to increase the comfort factor just enough to make the longer road rides as comfortable as the roughest short ones.

The WTB Rocket V saddle is available in four different trim and price points and are, from most expensive to least: SLT, Team, Pro and Race. The features and differences of each of the styles of the Rocket V can be found at the bottom of the page.
