Strength:

Tune’s best saddle creation. When you look closely on the saddle shell, it is made of super strong carbon in front and back of the frame. The rails is quite unique and i havent seen such saddle rails on other saddle which it was made by aramid fiber to support the rails. Mine was a marathon model and i didn’t expect it to be as very comfortable to ride. Found this saddle a gem because according to fairwheelbikes, tune speedneedle is extremely hard to find. Given this 5 hot chillis

Weakness:

This is the best saddle i have so i will not comment any weakness

Light, comfortable(!!), strong. I weighs 99 grams.

Weakness:

nothing

This saddle is the very ticket. When I bought it for the Rocky Mountain Element TSC bike I was not really sure if I could use it for long trails. But after my first try I went and ordered a second Tune Speedneedle for the other bike (S-Works).
Wow, is it light. But at the same time this saddle is the most comfortable saddle I ever experienced. I can use it for a day without any problems whatsoever.

Strength:

Comfortable (YES is true), Light, Carbon, Cool Looking

Weakness:

You need a special adapter from USE to use this and it is not compatible with all seatpost

Amazingly comfortable, the first time I sat on it it reminded me of the Selle Italia Flight. I use this saddle daily 70km commute, my rear hasn't complained once. It seems that the saddle sits just under your t bone. The only down side is that you would need a special wide diameter rail from some seatpost, as in the USE Alien.

Strength:

Light(marathon= 109g),enough comfortable,killer looks,strong(yes indeed!)

Weakness:

Leather wears fast and begins to come loose at the tip,that's all after some time thinking...

First impression when i held the saddle:wow,am i going to sit on this!?!Super light feeling,quite strong but the shell is pretty flexy,so comfort is guaranteed.I'm talking about the Marathon.It has a thin leather cover but after several muddy and wet bike conditions it begins(after a year) to wear a bit.At the nose of the saddle there's also some leather coming loose.This is because when i bike i hold my legs pretty close to the toptube,so it scrubs a bit.
After all a very comfortable saddle and a good investment for them who are looking for a lightweight saddle that still is comfortable.
