I have also heard that the Arione is very good. I have the SLR Carbon and it is more comfortable than it looks, very light (I think like 135g.?)
but it is, well, hard. I never think it is uncomfortable but I do a lot of 120mi+ rides and I sometimes wonder if the Arione or something else might be better. The SLR looks good so I tell myself better to look good than feel good.
I noticed that Sella
has a new seat on the web that is supposed to be like, 85grams? Seems that good newer high quality shorts and chamois cream matter as much as anything. That and if you ride hard the weight is on your feet and not the seat. One last thing and this has probably been beaten to death here before-foregive me I'm new here-I ride tubular tires and I find that on the long rides good tires change the whole experience! Keep crankin!
