What Saddle

I have a 07 Selle SLR XC Gelflow saddle, I want to replace it.

Okey its super light and well built but its just too hard for me,
I got it when i was shaving off as much weight as poss from the
bike but i am willing to trade another 200g for abit more comfort.

I was thinking this one here, ... delID=2622

I just want to a little more padding but still have a reasonably compact xc saddle.

What do you think?

    So I bought this Laser V Race as it seemed it would offer some
    more comfort but still allow a reasonable sporty ride and seemed good
    value, Well I am very happy its much kinder on my bum than the SLR was
    okey its double the weight but its also about a 1/3 of the price too

    Recommend it !

    That looks WAY too big for your bike! Like a sofa! Hope it works okay but it's a chunky old thing.

    I have just bought a Spesh Phenom SL that weighs a shade under 200g and it's the most comfy saddle I have ever had.

    Hehe its deffo bigger than the SLR was but not overly to big to look daft
    , looking at that Phenom you like them skinny :D
