Gus­set R Se­ries saddle £26.99

Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

Gus­set’s R-se­ries saddle is avail­able for a very rea­son­able £27 with a stitched three-piece cover (as seen here) or an even more rea­son­able £25 if you can live with a one-piece vinyl fin­ish. It’s avail­able in nine colours/de­signs, in­clud­ing this rather fetch­ing camo ver­sion for those who like the jun­gle-stealth look. Hol­low chro­moly rails (rather than the ba­sic steel often found at this price) mean weight is de­cent, at 266g. The shape is quite sup­port­ive, thanks to the up­turned tail, and there’s a good amount of flex in the hull. There’s not much of a pres­sure-re­lief groove though, and the nose sticks up a bit more than on most sad­dles, which we found un­com­fort­able at times when climb­ing. Seb www.ison-dis­tri­bu­
