- Lightweight mtb saddle?
It’s not super light- 200g or thereabouts- but I like the Charge Knife, I’ve had them on most bikes for ages. I think probably they have to be exactly the right shape for your bum but I find mine all day comfy- actually comfier than the Spoon for me. And pretty well priced.Posted 5 years ago
Didn’t get on with a Speedneedle (though only tried it on the roadie), but still have it, so should probably sell if anybody is interested…
Tempted to try one – how much Chris? Leather, or alcantara?
Problem I found with SLRs wasn’t so much that they were fragile, but they did wear out very very fast, I’d be through the cover in 6-9 months, which wasn’t great IMO, found everything else to last longer!Posted 5 years agoamediasMember
for cheap and reasonable weight try these:
*not in stock at CRC but available elsewhere if you look
I happened upon them by accident when one came on a bike I bought, didn’t recognise it but found it really comfy, then took it off to put on another bike and was surprised by how light it was.
I’ve got 4 of them now on various bikes, love them to bits as they fit my arse perfectly, and at < 200g for ~£35 with Ti rails and a nice comfy carbon base with a bit of padding on top they are a bit of a steal!Posted 5 years agopixelmixMember
I also have an SLR which I find comfy – though it’s not the most durable.
I have a couple of SLRs. A second hand SLR at 135g (claimed, actual is more like 150g) looks a bit worn and tatty but is functionally fine.
A secondhand SLR XC is wearing much better. Slightly heavier at 185g or so though (claimed at 170g according to their website).
Next time I need a new saddle, I think I’ll juts pick up another 2nd hand SLRPosted 5 years ago
