I know the saddle is a very personal choice, but I would be interested to know what other racers are using.
Which ones have you found take the stress of re-mounts,clean up well,and are comfortable and light ?
Flite. Smoothe and comfy. (nm)pauly

I went through a LOT of saddles, even the fizik pave, but this one has definately stood the test of time.

Actually, there's a San Marco Aspide on there right now, but I'll switch back to the Ti Flite before racing season. I wrecked a nice Selle Italia Mythos last year with magnesium rails, which bent under the pounding of me finally getting rid of my stutter step...

It's the only saddle that ever mattered...

The flite is my favorite saddle of all time. Especially the one on my cross bike (it has about 30,000 miles so its really broken in nicely)

Oooof--you wanna buy the ones I have? I hate 'em...The Walrus

...the first thing I've always done with any bike with a WTB saddle is tear it off and throw it in the box with the others. Gimme Flite! Gimme old Vettas! Hell, even gimme an SDG Bel-Air...

Not sure what the SST.k's were (k=Kevlar?). I have three SST XR's that are pristine, except for dust and some rub marks. If you're interested, I could e-mail a photo of 'em...

Thanks but the XR's are narrower than the k's, and yes, k=kevlar.

I have 3 SST XR models, unused and pristine, except for dust and a few very light rub marks. I never met a Specialized saddle that I liked, so if you're interested, how's $25/each? I can e-mail a photo, if you'd like.

I am trying the aspide
1) all day comfort reports
2) lorica cover, durable and I try not to buy leather
3) weight claimed 160g, actual 172g
4) my friend loves his.
Anybody got a spare Flite?snwbdrhoon

I love the Flites as well. Does someone have a used one that they are looking to offload?
