Weighing 229g, WTB’S titanium-railed Volt Team saddle is designed primarily for road and cross-country racing. It has a dipped centre and slightly raised tail, and offers great support and comfort when tilting your hips forwards to put power down.
The Volt Team’s forward-forcing profile makes it easy to get into a chest-down climbing position, and also means it a great saddle for slack seat-angled trail bikes too. The titanium rails, leather cover and Kevlar corners mean it’s very durable, and we found the shape very supportive. For the added weight penalty of a packet of crisps though, you can nigh-on halve the price by choosing the alloy-railed Pro version.
