    I've bent the primo big-rail seats. They're tough, but still rely on a system that can separate.

    Also, don't go with anything too wide. You won't be able to get behind it on the steeps.

    I've bent them too, but even though they are built in a similiar fashion to normal seats, the plastc is almost twice as thick and with the giant rails, I've never heard of one coming apart.

    If anyone can, it seems this man can. Bender drops to no-footer uphill landing might do it.

    Pivotal?

    hell yes :)

    as a long time BMX and Freerider I have broken more than my fair share of saddles and posts!!

    broken many Easton / Race Face / Truvativ / Kalloy / USE / Selcof posts and SDG / WTB / Titec / saddles...including I-Beam

    never broken a Pivotal setup on either my BMX or Mountain Bikes....used many Pivotal setups on the BMXs and Pivotal setups on hardtail and short travel mountain bikes used for very abusive riding environments like Dirt Jump, Street, Freeride and Slopestyle riding

    Pivotals get limp dick syndrome and the backs snap, mostly from missing pedals and landing on the seat. They aren't the strongest seats out there.
