    Full Carbon Saddle with KCNC Ti pro Lite-8000 seatpost...

    I bought a full carbon saddle(110grams) earlier and would like to mate it to my KCNC Ti Pro Lite-8000 seatpost but the KCNC clamping system is not carbon rail friendly.
    I think I need a carbon cradle or something.
    Any suggestions ???
    Where I can get one ?
    My weight is 140LBs.

    Thanks......

    AFAIK the seatposts that aren't carbon rail friendly are the ones that clamp from the side like old Ritchey one bolt system. Most hi-end seatpost have the system yours have.

    What he said, your fine. For extra peace of mind your could take a pencil file lightly to the edges of the cradle to make sure they aren't sharp.

    I've found the KCNC saddle to be carbon rail friendly. Works well with my San Marco saddle, although it's supposed to have some internal Ti (or Alu?) reinforcement in the rails.

    You can always order a carbon cycles lower cradle. It will provide more length of rail support.

    Carboncycles now have full spares for their seatposts. Lower cradles, ti bolts etc.

    Dude my 190lb A$$ has been Rocking that post with a Cycle King carbon saddle with carbon rails on a rigid carbon bike for over 2 years with ZERO Problems. I ride everything too, even the BMX track and if it's OK for my Fat Butt you should be fine.
