Regale Carbon FX. Its not quite WW at 195g. Suits me better than the Romin Evo it replaced.

There are a lot of options in the 90-120 gram range. As with any item like this, I question its overall quality, durability, etc. Thoughts?

Or indeed any of the 4 or 5 models repeated ad infinitum on Alibaba.

I use a Fizik Arione

Not the lightest but I've tried others but for weight v long distance comfort I find it unbeatable...


Yeah me too! I went from a Regal to Aliante, then an Arionne and now I'm back to my 21 year old Rolls...

I've been riding my San Marco Rolls for 18 years now. I'm wondering if I should just get another one for my new bike or use something lighter. I've seen the San Marco Due out and about, it seems to be a slimmed-down Rolls. Its just under 300 grams.

I've been a fan of the Arione for the last few years. Always found it distributed my weight pretty well (no noticable pressure anywhere and comfortable for 4-5 hours).

Recently though I've moved to the Antares and the difference is dramatic, big shift from broad weight distribution to completely on the sit bones and it's working really well. Amazing how sometimes you only realise that something you thought was great isn't.

The worst saddle I've had. Selle Italia SLR, I couldn't believe how much that damn thing hurt.

Tune Becker. The most comfy saddle I have ridden and light too.

I'm going to replace the Selle Italia X1 saddle that came on my 2012 Scott CR1 Elite with either a Merek Mega and matching seatpost from Ebay or a Selle Italia Turbomatic Gel Flow, both suggested in this thread. They seem to represent new and old technology for comfort.

I would get both but I get wildly varying weights for the Turbomatic from 220 grams to 310 grams on the internet. I don't want to replace the X1 with something heavier so 310 grams is a no-go.

Does anyone have an accurate weight for the current Turbomatic Gel Flow :?:

Another Concor user here. At 300g+ its not exactly WW though.

Anyone try the new carbon FX version of the concor? At 160g it would be a nice way to drop some weight if the feel is similar.
