I'm 6' 2" 190.

Is it better for me to get the carbon version or the TI version.

By the way, is this saddle that much better than the Arione or how are they different.

The Arione is longer and flatter and has the new "wing flex" that has gotten good reviews to this point. If you're not a weight weenie, buy the Ti rails as there is no difference save a few grams and a lot of money. I own both versions.
I saw the Arione tonight at my LBSDave Hickey

During spin class, two people had the Arione and 1 had the mountian version. I was amazed at the flex. Does the raised strip down the center of the Arione bother you? The mountain saddle isn't quite as long and is completely smooth.

I'm going to try them both. I really like the concept

190 is on the border of being too large for carbon rails. My bike shop won't sell it to anyone 200 or more. I have both the Aliante and the Arione in Ti version. Love both of them. Arione gives you a few more sitting position options due to bigger platform.
