Ok guys I like light saddles so 2 months ago I bought a 2012 Selle Italia TT (143g on my scale) and I use it till it broke just in the middle in that "carbon fibre" shell in a race. this saddle was little hard but I could stand it.
I love that tune speed needle saddle but I think is too hard.. and I have a kcnc lite pro seatpost so I can't install a carbon railed saddle there!!
Now I want a Selle italia SLR XP vanox rails saddle for my new building, a 2013 SW stumpy ht, and the slr XP have a extra padding so I think is going to be great.
But this weekend me and my sister went to a race and I installed my road bike's saddle a 2010 specialized toupe ti..... is a thin saddle like the slr's.
Bad Idea!! I could only stand that toupe for 2 hours and the terrain was very very bumpy with a lot of holes roots and stones we were riding for 6 hours!! It hurt me too much and it was a 2 day race so the next day was a hell 4 1/2 ride!!!
NOW!! I don't know if I really want that SLR XP... I think is too hard for endurance races
I'm looking for a comfortable saddle but not too heavy I have two options in my mind the specialized Phenom EXPERT or the Romin Expert, I like much better the Romin and is the saddle that the pros like Christoph Sauser and Stander use!!!
I want to know wich is better.. the Romin is more light but I think is little hard and the phenom is too heavy 243g!!!!!
I want some suggestions and if anybody have some experience with this saddles going to be great thanks!!!
