What Selle claims that's one thing, reality it's another one.
From the project 132g.
One point had slr, claimed 135g real 151g....

I put one of those on my gf's bike and it weighed 143g... tried it on 2 different scales with same result... no matter what selle say you can count on it being heavier!

I've got one, it's 137 grams. Nice saddle but never trust Selle Italia's weights - they are pure lies. The C64 is at least 20 grams heavier than they claim.

I have the standard carbino (not flow). Claimed 125g, actual 135g.
Not bad and I expected the weight to be more. Very nice saddle.

Mine SLR is 135g. But I saw even 150g ones. Just take your scale to the shop :)

The scales don't lie, the saddle however does. I've been 'testing' that saddle for 5 months now. I'm no fan, but my boss hasn't asked for it back yet, and it's lighter than my other saddles..

Actually, I’m toying with selling mine and going with the carbon Mantra. I need a VERY large opening. :( Anyone interested?
