I am looking for a new saddle, as my current one weighs the same as a ship anchor. :(
idealy it would be similiar to a selle italia slr.
so far i have found these.

I found all of these on aliexpresss, and they all cost around $30

I dont think that they will snap, or crack beneath me, as i only weigh 43kg

Do you guys have any experiences with such saddles. Are there any that are particularly good?

thank you

You weigh 43 kg?

They are ok for the price.

They will be pretty damn hard to sit on, thats for sure. Your 43 kg's wont be able to flex them enough to get any comfort.

yeah, that is a good point.
maybe i should opt for one with a cut out, so it will be esier to flex under my weight

I bought this one recently. It's not carbon, but light (142 gr) and gives some comfort.

I had one of these Chinese carbon ones. It didn't flex at all, and I'm close to 80 kg. A stripped SLR is much more comfortable.

I bought: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-FIT-3K-Fu ... 1c3ad7b156

But when it was at £30, not £40. It is pretty comfortable if you set it up properly, it just had a real sweet spot, but anywhere away from that I found it pretty bad. For off road it was fine but on road transfers I got uncomfortable pretty quickly. So I would recommend for long periods in the saddle.

Also at 43kg, you aren't going to flex any saddle!

I weight 77 kg, snapped mine in a MTB XC race, had to retire, not worth it.
