    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromNot comfortable or durable! I originally purchased the WTB Pro Gel saddle and had high hopes after reading reviews. Unfortunately, I was really disappointed with the comfort (i.e. The WTB "love channel" does not cut it) and durability (my brother-in-law had his fall apart on him). I purchased the Respiro Soft A-5130 and could not be happier. The cut out design really relieves pressure from your nether region and the "Royal Gel" is not too soft or hard. The vent design keeps your boys cool. Make the switch...I did!

    by fromSaddle Up? After reading the reviews on this seat, I decided to try one out for my road bike. The seat is a bit on the heavy side, but this does not bother me. The gel padding is nice and comfortable. However, the seat is not made for an aggressive road bike sitting position. It is comfortable for short rides (5 miles) after about the 6th mile, I can feel my sit bones starting to hurt. I completed an uncomfortable 50 mile ride with this seat, but this is my breaking point. On the plus side, when I ride on my top bar and more upright, the seat feels perfect, but when I go down to my hoods, the seat loses its comfort. I believe, this seat would make a great mountain bike seat, but I would not recommend it for a road bike. I upgraded to the WTB Laser V Pro and this saddle works much better for road riding.

    by fromMountain or Road I bought a mountain bike but also bought tires and extra handle bars to use on the road. This seat is much better than the stock seat on my Giant XTC. This seat is fine for mountain biking and is good for short rides on the road 10 miles or less. But if you are going longer distances on the road it is not as comfortable. I don't have much padding when I sit down so I need a comfortable seat to ride long distances. After riding for 10 or 11 miles the comfort of this seat starts to go down. My seat bones start to hurt and I get a little discomfort where my thigh hits the seat. This seat also makes you sweat a lot even during the winter here. I am going to try and look for a seat that has an air channel after I take this seat back to REI.

    by fromGood cushioning and not too heavy. Some of the reviews said this seat was heavy. I disagree. It provided more cushioning than my original OEM seat on my Trek Fuel 6 and the weight wasn't any heavier. You will still need some cushioning but overall it's a nice upgrade.

    by fromGood-quality saddle, reasonably priced Choosing a saddle is a personal thing, so it's hard to make specific saddle recommendations for others. However, if this saddle fits you, it's a good choice. The materials and workmanship are excellent for the price.

    by fromComfortable Saddle This seat works great for me. It beats out my factory K2 seat by a long, long shot. Gel padding is good and after some seat adjustments and positioning I'm very happy with it.

    by fromGreat saddle - you won't regret it I've now used this seat for more than 3000 miles, and I can say I am still very happy with it. I tried 6 different ones, and this is the only one I could live with. At the end of a century ride, I was not in pain - a major accomplishment for me! As others have said, it is not the lightest seat out there, but if you're riding in pain what difference does it make if you have a lighter one? This seat is only showing very minor wear, mostly just the lettering, otherwise it is holding up very well.

    by fromNice and comfortable I bought this saddle to replace a stock saddle on my hard tail. So far It has proven to be really comfortable and worth the expense. It's not lightweight, or a racing like saddle, but if you are looking for extra comfort especially on a hard tail this will help a lot!!
