I have 5 Tune Kom Vor's since they are the only saddle I've found after many years that truly fits my sit bones perfectly. Only problem being I'm now buying more and more bikes/seat posts with single bolt clamps and Tune's "boutique" craftsmanship with the rails being less than perfect, is causing creaking.

So, as a result I'm looking for other light saddle options with as close to the same shape as possible. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried wrapping the rails in something like teflon tape to stop the creaking? I have no experience but it seems like it would work.

I like the Kom Vor, and the other saddle I like is the old Flite with bare carbon deck and titanium rails.
Wouldn't mind finding a similar shape as Kom Vor, because the Tune item isn't cheap and the Flite has been out of production for a very long time.

Thanks guys. I'm looking into the Fabric stuff and would love to find one of their shapes that works for me.

Still one of the most comfortable saddles I've ever ridden, even though I'm quite happy with the Berk Lupina right now.

the flite isn't out of production for a couple of years anymore. They are building and selling it like mad. Another saddle that is based on the old elite is the AX Lightness endurance. the build quality is better then the kom for in my eyes.
