Surfing Treks website and found a new saddle on the site for you weight weenies. It's full carbon and weights a claimed 68 grams. Not sure this is ok to post but thought you guys might be interested.

Looks like they copied Berk's Lupina saddle...

Very similar in design and weight. At least made in USA and carries warranty. Not sure on price difference but pricey nonetheless.

Wonder if this is just for the Emonda SLR build or something.

It does look like a Berk saddle. Maybe they collaborated? Hopefully?

Not sure how much it is going for in the States but here in Japan it is priced at 58,000 yen which is around 510 dollars. Think I'll be ordering a Berk Lupina instead

$380 in US it seems. Looks interesting, may see if LBS can get one.

Is it flexy where you would be sitting in it? Let us know if it's comfortable.

Or buy a Berk Lupina for under $240 USD shipped to your door and support a forum member? I hope nobody here buys this saddle.

This one is made in the USA so that's a plus. I'm willing to try one out, I am affiliated with a trek store so...
