    The WTB Volt saddle is not a new saddle. New aesthetics aside, the shape and construction remain unchanged. Thank heavens for that!

    Have you ever compared the Volt to the Rocket? My Rockets on both MTB are dying, the oldest one is 14yrs old

    At first I thought this was a bit of a strange review because I needed to replace my WTB Rocket last year and could not find any UK stockists but there are a few now which is great news.
    I have been using WTB saddles for as long as I can remember and they are just right for my backside. I have tried other makes but can never get along with them.

    I always got on with my Volt but the colour stripe on it didn’t go with a new bike so swapped it for an Ergon Enduro. I immediately liked the Ergon for the bit extra thigh clearance it gave when peddaling seated but it does chafe a bit after many hours in the saddle. Never had the same chafing with the volt so I’m thinking I might switch back.

    I had a rocket saddle in the past and liked it. Tried a volt and thought it could do with a bit more padding to be honest. Maybe I got the wrong version. Currently favouring a charge spoon. Seems a very similar style.
    I wouldn’t call £70 rrp or £50+ on eBay a good price though. My spoon was £29 from merlin recently.

    I’ve literally bought an XL volt in the past as that’s all I could find and it was ridiculous 🤣 , I love them though and now have a M one which is much more suitable now it’s not whacking me on every drop!

    I have a Volt that came as stock on my Ibis Ripmo. Not felt a need to change it for my default option of a Madison Flux, so it must be alright.

    My bum has been raised and moulded on WTB rockets and always thought they lasted well. However the new volts appear to use a cheaper covering that doesn’t last as well.
