I'm always in search of a realy good saddle and of course that's which ever one fits. I was wondering from any current Aliante users if it is as durable as most saddles or is it cheap. also, is their a weight limit to this saddle
I weigh 180lbs, currently I use a Selle Italia gel flight and a Fizik Pave both seem to fit about the same.

I weigh 200# and have had no problems whatsoever with the Aliante.

They recently release an Aliante with Ti rails for heavier riders...I believe they recommend this for riders > 180lbs. It is also $30 cheaper. :-)

I have an Aliante and weigh 185. My buddy is about 210 and also rides the Aliante. No problems to date. I switched from a Selle Italia Trans Am (and also have a Flite Gel on my mountain bike). At first I wasn't terribly keen on the Aliante, but after a few rides, I really like it.
