This is the Spoon saddle from Charge. It's a favorite among the staff here at Tree Fort Bikes. It''s a slim, lightweight saddle that''s great for road and mountain biking. The high-density padding and pressure relief channel will keep you comfy for hours. The perforated, pliable cover has proven to be durable and keep its good looks!

Saddles are personal. This saddle works well for me. For the price, I don't believe there is a better saddle out there; very comfortable so far. I had to get accustomed to the rough saddle texture, but no big deal.
Incredible value for the money. Looks fantastic. Feels nice too. The suede like surface is pretty grippy when used with lycra shorts. That can be a good or bad thing depending on what your trying to do (stay put and grind or slide front/back).
For the price, you can't beat this seat. I've tried many expensive seats and none of them compare to this. Not only is this seat comfortable, it looks awesome too.
Everyone is different when it comes to seats. I measured to be a 140mm seat width, so this seat fits me perfectly.
I do have to say, that all my Asian friends who ride MTB, including myself, love this seat. Maybe it just fits Asian butts well.
Great seat, comfortable, and light for the price. I have been using one for a year on my 2x9 geared hardtail mtb, and finally picked up another for my rigid ss 69er mtb.
I would only advise that the original one I bought (black) has a smooth perforated cover, where the second one I got (also black) has a slightly more textured suede-like non-perforated cover. Both seem fine, but they are definitely different; the suede-like cover tends to "hang up" a bit more on my baggies. Overall, not a big deal (some may prefer the cover with more grip) as it just comes down to personal preference.
Very nice comfortable seat. It has somewhat firm padding, but a nice flexy shell to make for a very comfortable ride. When using it for more aggressive out of the saddle riding, it takes a couple rides to get used to the grippy suede like cover, but its only a minor trade off for the in saddle performance.
The first seat arrived with a slight defect. I phoned TFB and they were on top of it. They got a replacement shipped out ASAP.
As for the saddle, I researched a number of saddles before selecting the Charge Spoon. First test ride turned into a 30 mile road trip. You're probably thinking, that's crazy right... It was. I put nearly 120 miles on the saddle in the first 3 weeks and it remains extremely comfortable.
Saddles are very rider specific. Do your research, test ride if you can, and hopefully you'll find your match. This one works for me.
I installed this on my Diamondback Vinson, budget saddle for a budget bike. That said I like this saddle almost as much as my usual Selle Italia SLR XC, which is about 5 times as expensive.
I'll be recommending this saddle to my buds.
I bought this for my Diamondback Vinson, budget saddle for a budget bike. Its' a great saddle though, light and comfy, especially at this price. It pretty much as good as my usual go to saddle (Selle Italia SLR XC) a bit heavier yes, but one-fifth the price.
Nice quality saddle. Awesome saddle for the price. Looks fantastic... stylish, but not crazy over the top either. I got the dark brown and it really is a nice color with the white stitching and the logo up front. Rails are marked for positioning, which is nice.
Great saddle. Amazing value for the price. I got the brown one, at it looks great with the white stitching and understated logo up front. The positioning marks on the rails are nice too. Comfortable saddle, fairly light. Looks great.
Awesome saddle for an awesome price. Checked out and rode a few different saddles before finding the Charge Spoon. Spent a lot of un-needed money on those other ones. As long as they make this saddle, I am going to buy it.
I don't race, so weight is not a big issue for me. This saddle is not the lightest. But for me it is very comfortable for rides that range from 14-65 miles.
