The Dash Strike Gen 2, like all products from Dash Cycles, are handmade in Colorado with a focus on style and extremely light weight. For less than half the cost of a fully custom Strike saddle, the stock Strike Gen 2 weighs in at only 155g. The light weight is thanks to a minimalistic design that, even in its most padded form, is still light on cushioning. The Strike is remarkably similar in dimension to the ISM PN 3.0 and 3.1—with a fraction of the padding—so this is a good choice for those looking to shed as much weight as possible while sticking to a shape they know. No saddle works for everyone, and to this end Dash Cycles has a generous saddle test program that allows potential purchasers to try out its various products with minimal commitment.
