Hollow Ti rails on saddles(1 post)

Hollow Ti rails on saddlesBergMann

Does anyone know how much weight hollow Ti rails save over a normal set of solid Ti rails?

20-30 grams?

I recall having seen a claimed weight difference between hollow-Ti SLR and hollow-steel SLR XP models of around 50 grams, but that's not an analogous situation, and I'm not sure if all that weight difference is in the rails.

Was wondering the other day how much weight Avocet could take off my favorite saddle, the O2 40R, just by changing the rails...
