Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Magma Saddle

What are your thoughts on this seat?

http://www.sellesanmarco.com/products/magma_mgc.asp

I held it at a local shop and it feels like tin foil stretched over carbon fibre...

But it still looks like it has potential for comfort.

It isn't the padding that matters, more the shape.

A few people over at weight weenies had tried it out if I recall. There didn't seem to be much flex in the shell but paired with quality shorts/bibs a few of them found it comfortable.

my LBS has one, it has been returned 3X.
It's not carbon at all, its a sheet of magnesium.
Stupid price.

Oh, the exposed rivets tear lycra shorts.
