The third edition of the WCS Streem saddle from Ritchey simply highlights what is important to many riders. The Streem is light at 200 grams; yet durable due to its high quality microfiber cover and its carbon-injected nylon shell. This minimalist saddle has been the choice for many riders over the years because the flex built into the ‘wings’ of the saddle. Ritchey has patented this design as the Vector Wing, and it works extremely well, allowing the muscles of the hindquarters to travel throughout the pedal stroke without bounce, keeping contact with the saddle for maximum power transfer, while evenly reducing pressure across the contact area.
Riders who favor the WCS Streem design tend to prefer narrower (132mm), firmer saddles with just the right amount of padding. Ritchey uses a moderate layer of mid-density superlight foam that hits the Goldilocks measure for many riders. The 278mm length allows the rider to move fore and aft easily, defining the pedaling position best suited for the immediate effort. As a very affordable saddle with high end features, the WCS Streem V3 is ready to perform.
