Despite its thin profile, the Deity Pinner DH saddle is surprisingly comfortable on longer rides as well as the downhill or enduro use it's designed for.
The channel through the centre of the saddle is minimally padded, which helps to relieve pressure down below. There's thicker padding at the sides that helps improve the saddle's overall comfort.
When you’re really railing the descents, the long, thin profile of the Pinner sits well between the legs. It doesn't get in the way and gives enough room to get right over the back wheel when you need to. It's still wide enough to be used to help control the bike with the inner leg.
The microfibre cover has put up well with a large amount of grit and grime being rubbed into it on every ride, and the brightly coloured graphics are still bold as ever.
Even with chromoly rails, the Pinner weighs in at a respectable 255g and, at a penny under £45, it won’t bankrupt you either.
