Winner of our Best Buy Award, the Speed Comp is a great saddle at an even better price. Universally liked by nearly all of our testers, it seems to have the unique ability to fit almost anyone. Its length and width fall right in the middle when compared to other saddles in the WTB line up, such as the WTB Pure and the WTB Rocket. Generous padding and an anatomical groove round out the flat shape. If you are a fan of the old version of the Speed saddle, known as the Speed V, you are going to love the new version that is now known simply as the Speed. The changes are subtle in appearance, but the cover material is greatly improved with minimal exposed stitching.
The Speed is our go-to saddle for the daily driver mountain bike or commuter. It is, however, a bit too soft and heavy for the gram counters and serious racers. If you are looking for a lightweight racing saddle, we recommend you look at the our Editors' Choice Specialized Phenom Expert or the Top Pick Fabric Scoop.
