It looks a little bit flatter than the KHE.

So it's a pivotal seat and not the stealth?  Why the hole at the top of the seat?

The post is stealth, the seat is the regular pivotal.

I have to say that I am a little bit disappointed by the weight. Flatlandfuel says 389 g. So with about 200 g for a longer pivotal seatpost the setup is even heavier than a regular seatpost with the KHE (or Infinity) rail seat (about 300 g and 250 g).
I always thought the pivotal system would offer really light options. Hm...
Besides that I think it is a good seat.

The Minato-Seat is for shure heavier and should not be compared to any regular Pivotal Seat on the market.
Because it offers more Material to be lasting and strong enough.
It also is really great to handle in the back.

After over 20 Years of using Primo Steroid-Seats i finally have found a working alternative with the Minato Seat for me. It is also a great alternative to the KHE / Infinity / Autum  rail-plastic seats.
Great Job ARES, Thank you!
