Saddle recommendations for dahon folder please

I recently purchased a Dahon Mu SL......am upgrading to a thudbuster seatpost and was looking to put a new saddle on it....obviously i am looking for a combo of light and comfy.

Any suggestions?

Some have recommended Spiderflex...lokks interesting and comfy, but a bit heavy at 680 grams.

Thanks, Mike

I would not be overly concerned with the weight of the saddle .It is the comfort of the saddle that really matters.If your bottom hurts you will not want to ride.I recommend a brooks b67?0r a similiar saddle that is sprung.I have a lepper 65.

Check the Specialized series with Bodies technology. I'm a big fan of them, significantly cheaper than Brooks.

I second the specialized saddles. I went through several saddles before being measured and buying a Specialized Saddle. It turns out my bum is wider than most road bikers. I've been happy ever since.
