Rated 4 out of 5 by Nautiboy Performance @ a Price
I bought this to replace the Selle Italia SLR Techno (95grams) although the Selle is extremely lightweight and well built, it will hurt your butt if you use it for more than 50km ride. It is purely for racing. Wanted something more versatile that I can use for race as well as century ride and yet weighs feather light. This Astute SkyCarb is the answer, the quality is second to none.
The only reason is not getting full 5 stars is due to the high price.
