When you’ve been making bike seats since 1897, you learn a thing or two. Selle Italia started life making bicycle seats that were more marketed towards the “I ride my bike everywhere because those new-fangled horseless carriages are too expensive” crowd…which was pretty much everybody back in those days. But by the 1970’s they got into making racing saddles and that’s where they truly excelled, introducing one of the first sub 200g saddles ever. Today, Selle Italia has a well-deserved reputation for quality and comfort in their wide range of mountain bike, road and commuter saddles. If you demand comfort and quality materials and construction, you can’t go wrong with Selle Italia.
