Do you mean SLR? If so, I love it. Believe it or not, it is the most comfy saddle I've had since my trusty old Selle Italia "Turbo" saddle. The only complaint I have is that the leather seems to be wearing pretty fast. Other than that it is great. I got a steal on mine for $45 brand new at Cambria Bicycle Outfitters. Otherwise, you can find them anywhere like Excel Sports, Colorado Cyclist, Nashbar etc...

One word of advice: Take the time to find the correct position and then give it some miles.
The SLK is new. Not as minimalist looking as the SLR.Fez

Ok, for the real weight-weenies - the Selle Italia SLR C64 - At only 64 grams +-8%, how long can you ride on this seat? What kind of seatpost do you need for carbon rails? Not the USE Alien clamp!

The Belgian distributor told me that the SLR C64 was suited for time-trials or rides of maximum 30 Miles. Carbon rails have a titanium or aluminium collar to protect it against pressure from the seatclamp. Really light is the combination of a seatpost and a saddle, just look at
