Bontrager inform RXL, very tough, very comfy (for me) and only 197g, not flyweight, but hardly heavy!

All I got told that all selle italia saddles have no limit on them. Including the C-64. I send them an email to make sure.

FWIW, just something to check out, Perfomance Bike has a TT saddle (Forte brand?) that seems to be very supportive,
about 230g, comfy, and yes it's very cheap. I have 3 of em, and put alot of pressure on my saddles with no probs.

I weigh around 95kg and use a Bontrager Evoke RXL. It's pretty light at 145-150g, and really comfy. Not too expensive either considering the weight and comfort guarantee thing they offer.
