Yep, maybe it's my weight...but I've found that a decent saddle has enough flex on top to be reasonably comfortable.

....given my old fave, teh Specialized Alias, uses titanium rails...but I didn't feel the difference in those rails and the rails in the Specialized Avatar....I just liked how the Alias had almost no padding....padding tends to just shift the pressure to softer tissues, which was rather unpleasant for me, so even my mountain bike saddles are minimally padded (SDG S7000 for mountain).
