Not exactly Old School, but I love these.. Been looking for a while for one, and got this NOS 8)

Will look nice on an Orange or Lime Green C16R me thinks :wink:

bet its wayyyyy more comfortable than the carbon flite (still don't understand that on a road bike, let alone a MTB :shock: , although they do look cool )

(like the avatar 'orientation' :lol: )

Never tried one - I've got one Bontrager Kevlar saddle and it's like a sponge when it rains :?

Are these any better?

I haven't used anything else for years so wouldn't know about the bontrager. It rains by the truckload here and I haven't noticed that the SDG gets particularly waterlogged.

Mine's an X-Lite Kevlar/Ti 'Pilot Support System' (PSS). Light as an original Flite and pretty much as comfy too, looks very similar in profile also.

SDG are still making comfy saddles today.

I got one too. :) Got it with a high-end bike (XTR 950, Syncros Revolution, Ringle) and it is in great condition. Produced in July, 1995. How do they compare to the classic Flite Ti in terms of quality, comfort and value?
