Update to my prior post:
I discovered that the Pro Turnix Carbon fits me very well.

BTW just got found Selle Italia SLR Tekno on sale, 93.1 grams, not bad. C130 is a lot more and has no flex whatsoever so I imagine this will be as comfortable if not better and at least 40-50 grams lighter.
Kit Carbonio flow it may replace comes in at 134 g
My wallet is the lightest thing on my bike.

Still the Speedneedle Marathon on my caad9. Had 143mm Toupes on the other bikes but just recently pulled them all off and dumped all 3 on eBay. Back to original Selle Italia Flites on those bikes for now (commuter, track bike and a Kevlar shouldered one for the MTB)

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

My road bike has this Merek carbon piece. They do some clever designing on where the rails attach to give it some spring. It came in at the claimed weight of 110g. Besides the low weight, I found that the slickness of the carbon makes changing position a lot easier than the grabby leather of my selle italia.

On both bikes Selle Italia Flite 233g w/titanium rails, kevlar corners. Those have served me 10 years.
