The stock seat on my CX bike is no good. What do you run on your CX? I take mine out on some long road rides and also on some bumpy trails but don't race so it doesn't see very many running mounts. I would like something that cuts down on vibration and I prefer a thin and flat profile.

I was looking at the Selle Italia Fluid which has a nice shape and would appear to dampen vibration. Anyone tried one of these? How durable is it?

Saddles are too personal for me to be able to make an easy recommendation.

I Have a Fi:zi'k Pave on my 'cross bike these days. It's light and comfortable, and fits many of your criteria. It's also a bit shorter in the nose than a SI Flite... something I appreciate in mounts and dismounts.

Like Velocipedio said, a saddle is too personal too recommend, except to say that the SI saddles I've had (Flite, Flite Gel, Flite Trans Am) have held up well and been comfortable.
