    What to replace Power V with?

    Love my WTB Power V, only saddle that fits beautifully and hasn't broken a rail in years of use.

    Just went looking for a new one and see they are long discontinued

    Is there any equivalent saddle out there now?

    WTB replaced it with the Aviator, don't know if it's any good.

    thanks for that, had a look at it on the website and it seems a bit smaller now, still got the 8mm rails though which is good.

    just measured my power V and it's: 145mm wide x 300mm long

    the aviator they say is: 137 x 272 which is a lot smaller..

    Why WTB? WHY???

    I use the WTB Pure V and Love it. Most comfortable saddle ever.
    Some days I want to kick my own A$$ twice.

    As others have stated, give the Pure V a shot. Its uber comfy if you like larger sized saddles.

    thanks for that Guy, I've got a pure v and it is comfy (had many many saddles over the years, and broken them all), but the power v was in another league.

    It was the clyde industry standard saddle just 3 years ago. If anyone up and coming clyde came on here asking what saddle to get it would be 90% power v responses.

    oh well...
