I am in need of a new saddle and am curious as to what people would recommend? I'm looking for something that is comfortable without being too heavy.

thanks for the input.

Argh, this thread has come up a lot lately...check the archives to see what was already said about it but I'll tell ya now that the final answer is "depends on your butt." Personally I like the Flite but that's just me...

gel is 340gr. without gel is 280gr. would also recommend the san marco rolls.

I've tried about a half dozen saddle and keep coming back to the turbo. But, as the first poster wrote, every butt is different

They have one with Ti rails for the seriously weight concious, but really, the difference in weight between a Team Pro and a Selle is, what, 150 grams? That's a whole 4oz? Hell, that's, what, 1/3 of a water bottle's cotents?
I'll say it once again-if you value your @$$, buy a brooks, and save the flyweight butt-killers for the days you actually race.

My fave is the Terry Ti-Race Liberator. It has a donut-hole cut out in the middle for your private parts, and it's lightweight, with titanium rails. It's on sale now for $45, down from $72. I can't remember where-- maybe sierratradingpost.com, or did I see it in the latest Terry catalog?
