    Matt, I’ve heard anecdotally that carbon saddle rails are great for absorbing road vibrations. However I’ve never seen this promoted by saddle companies, and I’m hesitant to spend money on carbon rails without knowing if it’s actually true or not especially when the rail design could be quite different between manufacturers. In your experience have you ever found carbon rails eliminate more road buzz, or are they comparable to titanium rails?

    • I’ve never tested the same model of saddle with different rails but I doubt carbon does much to reduce road buzz. I’ve seen some data showing that different stem materials have very little impact on the transfer of buzz and shock to the hands, so I can’t see the rails having much of an impact.

      The key to damping and comfort appears to lie with the design of the component rather than the materials employed. There are saddles like Fizik’s Kurve design that have been designed to flex and there’s no need to use carbon used for the rails.
