^That a road seatpost so I dont know if that is your best option. Honestly for a seat post close to 200g for Mountain use you should look at Thompson. But be prepared to be upwards of 90 dollars.

Sorry I missed the Carbon Part.

How important is Carbon to the OP? I just looking around the lowest MTN Carbon post I have seen is around 240g. A Thompson Aluminum one that will cost around 90 bucks weigh 201g.

So...you can't figure out how to find a seat post.
Then you post in the "Racing and training" forum( instead of , let's say"weight weenie" forum)
But you can find solid gold cheap toilet seats?

If this is going on a HT, I'd get a 27.2 or 26.8 carbon post and shim kit for the added flex of the seatpost. I did this on my HT and went from a race face 31.6 alum post to a Bontrager 27.2 RXL post and it became much more comfy.

Sorry, more flex = higher chance of failure?

102 grams heavier than he wants. Its not even real Carbon Fiber. Its aluminum wrapped in carbon fiber. My 24 dollar APX Seat post is on 255 grams.
