|Which means that it is not a gram lighter than a Flite, e.g.
But my backside enjoyed the first ride so no regrets.
(My Thomson post probably would not have accepted the carbon rails, thus I bought the Ti version)

The weight is listed on page 3 - keep clicking "next page"
The real world weight looks to be closer to 180-185 grams.
I hear these seats are amazing. The price tag scares me at $180. The Ti rail version is about $140 though.

|From memory, my Selle Italia Flite is supposed to be 230 or so grams. I weighed it a while back and it came in over 250.
I also weighed a new carbon seatpost recently and it was 30 grams over published weight.
Anymore, I use the published weights as a relative indicator of weight - comparing one product to another. I've given up relying on the vendors for accurate numbers.

|I agree with the above post. I bought Vitesse, Twin Tech, for my girlfriend. They say it weigh 230g, but when I actually weighed it, it was much more than the given number. I think something like the TUFO style weight guarantee is necessary in this industry.|

|Amen to that rengaracchi - the bike industry is one of the most poorly regulated and independent testing is hard to come by.|| |
