It is 3.0Kg net.

This is the metal nut that I use for the fitments


For my size, I need to add extra padding

Charlie, the seat is gorgeous. We're all awaiting weight! It's the wait for the weight.

The weight wait.

Amirite?

Guys?

EDIT: Woops, saw that it was posted above. Was hoping that was weight INCLUDING padding and nuts/hardware...

Thinking of K-swapping? Here's an idea of the cost involved.

The current prototype is 3.0Kg net. As it has too many metal insert built in.

The future will be 2.8Kg net.

Nice! The new padding looks great! Comfortable? Final costs? Or did I miss it in an earlier post?

Man, this along with the TransForged seat are one of the best options out there for the Eliges.

Don't forget about Greg's offering. His is fully customizable too. I wish I had these options back when I was in the market for CF seats. Maybe I will sell my Technocraft seats. Decisions...decisions.

Crap, you're right. Greg's seats are pretty awesome. Thanks for pointing that out in this thread.
