I weigh 83kg. Would it be safe to ride a carbon combo with a weight limit of 70kg? . I know it seems a silly question but I also know that you can push the boundary a bit .
To risky?

If you lift your weight up for every bigger bump, you'll be safe.

But in the end it will fail when you'd need it the most.

why risk it? sure it could work 99.9% of the time, but that .1% is going to suck.

Do you like the feel of doctors pulling carbon out your butt with tweezers?

No?

There's your answer!

Coming from an 80kg mtb rider who's destroyed 3 seatposts with 85kg limits by landing hard on the tail of my saddle.

You could use a combbination of a carbon saddle and seatpost that has a higher weigt limit. How about a custom seatpost/saddle combo?

Lots of options out there.

Thanks krzysiekmz. I already have a light carbon post and carbon seat well under 200grms .I had the chance to get a AX combo that weighed 125grms but It had a weight limit and I wanted to find out if it would be safe or not .
I will not be taking a chance on the combo . :thumbup:
