I currently have two S-Works Power saddles and want something under 100 grams. Also looking for the best and lightest brake cable housing.

Going to have to be more specific than 'Clydesdales' when talking lightweight saddles. Highest weight limit I know of is Gelu Carbon Creations - they list at 110/115, depending on where you look, for the 1&2 versions. All versions are well under 100 grams.

There is no getting around the fact that almost all your body weight is supported by your saddle. So when you are heavy, it is a greater load per square inch.
But I don't think there are specific qualities of a "clydesdale saddle", it is just that a flyweight can tolerate and imperfect fit more easily, while a heavy guy has to experiment more to find what fits more precisely. My weight has fluctuated a lot over my riding days, and I don't require a different fit when heavy. It is just more critical that I have a perfect fit. Small "incompatibilities" become intolerable agonies during a long ride.

Berk or Bontrager XXX. The latter has no weight limit.

I really like the look of the Gelu S2 with the cork, but all I can think of when looking at them is bathroom tile!

Plus, I can't find any vids showing flex, if any.
