Generic Plastic Saddle

Generic Plastic Saddle

This saddle weighs only 189g, saving up to 193g over a stock OEM saddle. It resembles a Spyder saddle, but the shell is normal plastic, so it is not very stiff, and has no padding. It is ideal for bikes stored outdoors because of the lack of a cover to damage, but all the holes mean you have no protection from road spray. As always, a saddle should be picked for comfort first, then weight, but this doesn’t cost much to try out. At $5 and saving 38.6g per dollar, it represents an extraordinary value, very low cost upgrade. It can be found on eBay.
