    Corima carbon saddle: 96g

    i just read a comparison test of different ultralight carbon saddles in a french roadie magazine (Le Cycle) and found an interesting saddle:
    Corima, best known for it's tubular carbon wheels on the road peloton, now also offers a light saddle:
    http://www.corima.com/corima/gb/prod...res/selle.html

    at just 96g and getting the best rating also for comfort and having an acceptable price too (120 Euro / 155$, that includes french tax which should also be around 20%!) it really seems to be an interesting option. the rails are attached with elastomers and said to really make for added comfort of the whole structure.

    I thought Corima was best known for its carbon frames...

    The factory is not far from us, Nino, it's in Valence.


    For the non US readers, the test say that this saddle is very long and very curved.

    I assume this is only for road then? I sent them an email and have not got a response. Very interesting though...

    That looks pretty good, but I wish the relief channel was bigger. Are there any carbon saddles that have an anatomical cutout in it like the Aspide Arrowhead from San Marco?

    Cheers,

    looks good

    about half the cost of AX-Lightness and almost as light

    i like the elastomer idea to hold the rails ...could be very comfy indeed

    We the people ...

    the elastomer / rails idea is far from a new idea. been done a few times in the past. are the elastomers replaceable? as they noticeably degrade with time.

    I contacted Corima...

    these saddles are only for road use.
