Maybe Selle weighs their saddles in lower gravity environment :D

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.
