    I bought a Selle Italia SLK Man Special Edition Saddle with Manganese Rails, in White. What a great saddle (and at a great, PlanetX price too! Thanks chaps). The claimed weight for the saddle is 225 gms. I weighed mine on digital scales. It weighed in at 209 gms. So good looks, comfort, leather cover luxury, a bargain and light enough to make most pro's (and all every day cyclists) very happy. Thinking about buying a Selle Italia? Look at the range, pick one that's good for you but above all do it! Buy that Italian baby. It really does make sense.
