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..

Maybe Selle weighs their saddles in lower gravity environment :D


Edit: please don't repost pictures from the same thread, thanks! Powerful Pete

I think what it really is...It is marketing push to the limit.

On the good side this is one of the most comfortable seats on the market (for mine behind :D )

They print "=/- 8%" on a lot of their marketing material but 8% is an unheard of margin of error for manufacturing. I think like you said Robroyski is right, it's marketing... :evil:

Very graciously lent to me by Primera Sports in Bournemouth. I'm going to buy it if its as comfy as my team edition SLR.
