High Tail it down the trail.
As bikes get more and more travel-happy, components and accessories
have to evolve to keep up. Saddles, though, are largely immune to
changing bike design — a seat's a seat, right? WTB disagrees, and so
it teamed up with Chris Cocalis, the founder of Pivot Cycles, and Dave Weagle, inventor and namesake of the DW-Link suspension, to designed the High Tail Pro Saddle specifically to accommodate
long-travel bikes that might otherwise buzz your saddle when the
suspension is fully compressed.
By shortening the saddle to 255mm and including a rear cut-out, WTB made sure the High Tail won't get buzzed on bikes with compact rear frames, big wheels, and plush suspensions. A shorter tail
makes it easier to get your weight off the back when you're descending, and WTB's signature DNA padding and responsive-but-comfortable Flex-Tuned shell provide personalized and high-quality comfort.
While the High Tail was made with DH and enduro riding in mind, it's
light and comfortable enough to work as a trail, XC, or even road saddle, so don't
hesitate to throw it on your ride of choice.

Supportive Functional Shape
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Installed on my Transition Patrol. Not the lightest but the shape seems supportive/comfortable so far which is the most important aspect of a saddle.
