Looking for saddle recommendation: which sub 100g saddles would fit/feel closest to my Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio? I'd like to replace it w/ one that's ~50g lighter but with approximately the same shape. I weigh 156lbs so no issues with weight restrictions. (This is the final component I want to upgrade on my current ride. I guess once I get the new saddle, it will be time for a new frame, and the process begins again.)

Thanks for your advice/experience...

I love the Selle Italia Kit Carbonio fit and also find the AX 1000 saddle very comfortable. Mine weighs 59g and has a 75kg weight limit. A very beautiful bit of kit too.

What does the "H" stand for? Is it something like Jesus "Hector" Christ or is it something more biblical, like "Holy"?

Any input on these saddles? Ride quality, comfort, durability?

if the shape fits your behind, then its confortable. i have some friend who dont like it since they fit the fizik arione type shapes, not the slr type shape.
been using it for almost 2 years already.

Just get the C64, but please notice that the shell is less flexible than those with plastc shells.
