I used a Exped AirMat UL on a weeks touring I did a couple of weeks ago. Pack size is excellent as is weight and I think it might be a bit cheaper the Neoair. I found it very comfortable.

The solo with all the parts and a wheel build is £675. The unmodified cadenza 8 is £680. I'd probably still want to change the handle bars on that though.

The cadenza frame is the same for the cadenza 8 (an alfine geared model) and the solo. They also sell the same frame with dérailleur fitted. I guess they must use a 135mm on the solo.
