SDG’s take on the dirt jump saddle follows a conventional route, shunning gimmicks in favour of a big padded perch with plenty of meat to grab hold of. The body of the Freestyle is broad and amply protected by Kevlar scuff guards on both corners. Hard rubber guards trim the extremities and further cosset the upper from crash damage. The cover itself is extremely grippy, while a scalloped rubber section assists with Superman seatgrabs and toboggans. Although not designed for pedalling great distances, comfort should never be overlooked since most jeans-wearing dirt-bags will be seated in highly inefficient positions on their way to the trails, and for this the Freestyle scores well. It’s only let down by being a bit more expensive than the competition.
MBR RATING: 8/1O
