I know that saddle recommendations are very personal preference due to specific body fit. I currently find the most comfortable saddle for myself is the WTB Speed V Comp due to its greater support for the sit bones. I have tried many other saddles such as the Avocet Air, Selle Flight, Bontrager Comp, etc. and just haven't found the support as the Speed V. Has anyone found a saddle similar to this one that is more geared toward performance? Perhaps one of WTB's more performance models? The Speed V is on the heavy side and I would like to trim the weight. Thanks.
Yup, I run a WTB on all my bikes now. They have a great range now. Everything from light, and tight to more substantial stuff. Check them all out here:

The Rocket V Team is supposedly 240g, but I weighed it closer to the SLT weight at 210g.
The Speed V is 400g.
So with the Rocket you'll get a saddle that's 1/2 inch narrower but almost 1/2 pound lighter. I'd give it a try...I highly recommend it.
Thanks for the recommendations!
