on the carbon aspide, the joint between the rails and the saddle became creaky and loose (as hornedfrog says), but only after several years and many, many miles. (I can't remember the exact mileage, but it was around the mfg's projected lifetime for the saddle).
the full carbon SMP didn't fare as well. one of the carbon rails cracked after 2 1/2 years. the saddle itself was fine, and the joints were still good.
I replaced it with a carbon SMP w/ steel rails.
on balance, I would advise against the Ax lightness. but if you want to take the chance, you can probably get away with it for awhile. I don't think the saddle itself splintering is very likely. the rails may go sooner for you than for an <85kg person.
