    I have the gray seat with the weight adjustment but not sure if I have the "flex seat". How can you tell if you have it or not?

    Also I only weigh @150 or so. Would it even be worth it? I mow pretty rough lawns and already have flex forks but it's still pretty rough ride.

    You have the suspension seat, not the Flex seat.
    The Flex seat is actually the platform the seat bolts to and you would have had to of bought it as a add on.
    It would be worth it, the Flex option helps with the back slap from mowing rough ground.

    The Flex Seat platform option is not available for the X-One.
    It was / is available for the 2010 and older Hustler Z and Super Z.

    I just got a new plush Super Z with the suspension seat and flex forks.
    I'm used to a full size Z with no suspension and my method of handling bumps then was to lean forward off the back of the seat.
    I still have to do it over pretty rough ground because the back will slap me around.
    I find it works pretty good that way.
