None that i can see. i don't care about weight

Being a bigger guy seat are a pain to find. i'm riding at about 220 prob 230ish when riding with gear. I have a wider seat bone. the Selle flite's are nice but the little extra width did it for me and riding is totally different know. For anyone looking to buy a seat i suggest getting sized. Bontrager and Specialized both have systems. at least it will give you a starting point to helping you out.

Strength:

More comfortable than most other saddles I have tried, wider than traditional saddles and longer.

Weakness:

Heavy.

I just started riding again and my butt was killing me after about two hours. After dealing with being sore each weekend I decided to just get a better saddle that was comfortable as a priority. I settled on this because it has a wider than average and longer than average. Not that I am a big guy, but the width makes a difference to me and I have not been sore since using this saddle, including on rides in excess of 4 hours. The only downside is it is a really heavy saddle and expensive to boot.

Bottom line is get this if you are looking for comfort over weight. You won't be sore and I think that is well worth the few grams of weight.
