    sub 200g non-carbon rail saddle?

    Are there any mid-width (142-145) non-carbon railed weight weenie saddles?

    My old favorite Bontrager 142 with ti rails is on its last leg. Weigh is 195 grams.

    Someone gave me a Fabric Scoop Shallow Race ti, and it's a brick: 256 grams.

    Read many posts about 145 grams carbon rail from Aliexpress. Again not looking for carbon rails, but sub 200 grams would be nice.

    Thanks in advance.

    WTB Devo Ti is 195g. It's discontinued but they're usually not hard to find lightly used or NOS. By far my favorite saddle.

    Replaced my Bontrager Evoke RL with a Selle Italia SLR Flow that turned out to be a perfect fit and even more comfortable for me. Lists at 170g.

    I wonder if you should try to stick with Bontrager, if they offer a similar new model. Saddles are so unique that you're playing a guessing game in terms of fit/comfort with these recommendations.

    My favorite too. Iím still pissed they discontinued it. They wrote me at one point and said they were bringing it back, but they never did. I did recently find a NOS one to put on the shelf when the current one is done, but they are getting more scarce.
