Jump saddles can make or break how you feel about your bike, with options of Pivotal, I-Beam or twin rail as well as choices to be made about a padded or plastic perch.
The Gusset Fat Jack is of the traditional padded, railed variety, something this tester was pretty happy about. The padding is good enough to let you actually sit down and relax on the way to the jumps, without sacrificing weight and style.
The chromoly rails are strong enough to withstand pedal blow-out landings and the vinyl cover, with its tastefully subtle Union Jack detail, is grippy enough that you don’t go sliding into the back wheel.
