Is there a top 5? I'm sure obviously these are the most expensive out there too.

I'm guessing it's the likes of Dash, AX Liteness, Tune, Smud-Carbon? Opinions? Are there any no name brands out there that make it to the list?

Lightest production "saddle" of which I am aware: Dash Cycles P.3 http://www.dashcycles.com/products/ with listed weight of 37g (Road reinforcement) and measurements of 172mm L X 123mm W - so it's shorter than a standard saddle. donald reports getting his saddle of this model down to 33g viewtopic.php?f=3&t=99392&p=844329#p844329 .

+1 on the Berk

It's a stella set up. Mine weights in at 147g and I'm 85kgs.
I can't even look at the other light saddle options as they all have weights limits that I'm too Heavy for.

The lightest full size saddles were the Becker Special Edition and the M2Racer, if you can find them there is nothing lighter

"The lightest full size saddles were the Becker Special Edition"

Where did you find the Becker Special Edition? I ride the normal "porky" version at 64 grams and love it. Maybe I can get away with the Special Edition at my weight of 140lbs?

I don' t own one but I know that it was a special edition that some dealers could get. I have also heard that the shell started to lose its shape after some years of use but that's the price to pay to have the lightest. Good luck trying to find one
