@ russianbear: true, they may well be overpriced, there are plenty of much cheaper and much lighter carbon saddles out there, but don't know hoow many of those I would like to have under my butt on a 2hr trainer session...or hard 4hr+ ride...
...the question for me is whether the skycarb strikes a good balance between weight and comfort
the guys who created it apparently are designers , which slightly worries me, as you'd hope for a decent knowledge of anatomy/kinesiology/biomechanics/ cycling, but I am hoping some technical people were involved too...or maybe i am just too much of a geek...
is it still comfortable on long/hard interval/power sessions on the trainer?
how does it compare to other padded saddles on long hard rides?
thinking on replacing my arione 00
EDIT: It seems that the design has some rubber bumpers between the saddle rails and the shell, which may be the cause of this free float. I will give it a shot. If it does not work for me or I get impaled, you'll hear back. If it works, you won't hear from me. Typical... Haha

It's all about finding the right shape for your body, it has no correlation to price or weight.
That said, I use my SMUD saddle on ultras and doubles as well as interval training. So that's, at most, 14hrs down to 1hr sessions.
