I'm looking for a light saddle for my Crux build. Have a Power Mirror on the road bike and it's the best saddle I've ever ridden. Now that they have 2 versions, would you guys opt for the carbon rails or ti rails for CX/gravel? It's around a 60g weight difference. But mainly I'm worried about carbon rails for CX remounts. I'm big at 85kg and I know it's not a full jump but I don't get it perfect every time and worried I'd snap the carbon rails at my weight. Are the ti any stronger?

I weigh 95kg+ and have used carbon saddles for years with no issue. You're good.

The Bjorn looks interesting but probably weighs the same as the sworks and is way more money. Plus I don't know if it fits.
Not the same weight.
3D printed top cover saddles:
S-works Power - 205 g
S-works Romin - 185 g
Setka - 135 g

Bjorn Sedlo (without 3D cover) - 90 g
How was your test on the Sedlo? I'm interested in the Setka...and currently riding a Berk Lupina on one bike.

It's pretty good in feeling, but it's no all ok with surface structure. I have some troubles with bib's scratches by 3d cover.
Jump to traditional (non 3d). It's very comfortable for short rides, but too firm for long (over 2 hours) rides.
