its hard to say whether its comfy. Everybody's sit bones are so different. I have a friend that rides a saddle he loves, to me its like sitting on razor blades.

But yes, the benefit here is its light weight. 190 grams is pretty light. But considering a "normal heavier saddle" weighs like 275 grams, its really not that much weight for normal bike riders.

I would say for 20$ its worth trying out and its likely better then any target level bike seat.

The few reviews that discussed comfort say it was not comfortable. I also found 2 review that say this saddle exceed the spec (219gram).

if you're going to try to shave weight (i.e. you are a "weight weenie" and counting grams on building a light carbon road bike), then it may be worthwhile. (Unfortunately, I'm currently in that mode... trying to get under 17 Lbs with pedals,bottle holder, bar tape,etc)

You mind as well get this if you want to shave weight:

I find this saddle to be comfortable versus the stock Specialized saddle of my 2017 Allez. The cut out keeps my perenium out of harm's way. Rides over 50 miles usually would cause some type of ED, but after I got this one it seemed to help.

So it causes you some ED but using this saddle help you out?
Can you elaborate more about this
I have heard some riders about issues with ED too but I found it hard to believe

Sitting on a bike saddle puts pressure on the blood vessels that supply blood to the penis.
