Selle SMP Glider Saddle
In the age of ever-lighter everything, it's intriguing to see so many riders switching over the slightly heavier Selle SMP saddles and loving them. Well, after looking at the Selle SMP Glider saddle, we get it. This is no carbon fiber plank that you can barely sit on. It's a pinnacle of science and engineering that really looks at how the body interacts with the saddle. The Glider, like all the other Selle SMP saddles, has a unique shape that decreases pelvic floor pressure and helps you stay more comfortable on the bike without any numbness or soreness.
  • All Selle SMP saddles feature a unique, "beak" saddle nose that acts as a flat base for efforts while sitting during long climbs; and as a relief during the descents, offering better control of the bike with the thighs
  • Raised rear gives saddle a more aerodynamic shape for those times when speed is the name of the game
  • Endorsed by physicians as a saddle that limits compression on the pelvic floor for increased stability and a lower, more comfortable position on competitive rides
  • Extra wide, central channel eliminates pressure in sensitive areas up front and in the rear
  • Lots of foamed elastomer padding throughout the saddle and a breathable synthetic cover ensure ultimate comfort
  • Nylon 12 carbon fiber shell provides lightweight strength
  • Tubular steel rails add durability

    Comments about Selle SMP Glider Saddle:

    I've used Prologo and Fizik saddles before, even though they're good, I was not very satisfied with them. There was always something which made me adjust my sitting mid-ride. The Fizik saddle was even worse, the contact between the saddle and my inner thigh while I was pedaling wore off my short material at the contact area. Until I switched to Italia SMP Glide, I couldn't be happier.

    First off, it's so comfortable. Thanks to the padding, I don't feel much of blows from bumpy roads. Secondly, because of the curve, the saddle kind of embrace your bottom perfectly, spreading the contact as well as pressure evenly from front to back, so after a long ride, I don't feel any particular part of my bottom take too much of hit from bumpy road. And also because of the curve, my bottom doesn't move out of right position during the ride, which requires less to no adjustment, so good. I don't have problem with the saddle rubbing and damaging my short anymore.

    Fitting the saddle requires a bit of patience though. Leveling the saddle from front to back won't guarantee a perfect position, you will feel the saddle nose against your crotch. You must tilt the nose down to a certain degree to get to your right setup, since it also depends on how you sit on your bike (more up right or lean forward). However, it's not a big hassle.

    Comments about Selle SMP Glider Saddle:

    I was looking for a saddle to alleviate numbness in the family jewel. This saddle did that...no numbness at all and quite comfortable.The quality leather cover prevents slipping and sliding around the saddle.The padding is just right and fast pedaling causes no chaffing at all. I must admit it is costly but worth every penny--Trust me on this one and enjoy the ride!

    Comments about Selle SMP Glider Saddle:

    I had a selle smp extra. The plastic cover on that seat cracked. So I purchased this Selle SMP Glider saddle. This saddle is skinnier than the extra (less padding) but it has a leather cover and therefore should last much longer than the smp extra model. Despite the fact that it has less padding, I've been extremely comfortable on the seat. I would recommend that you purchase.

    Comments about Selle SMP Glider Saddle:

    My old saddles are no longer made so I had to find a new fit. The Glider fits the bill. SMP stood out after my research so I gave it a go. I'm glad I did. I just finished a 2 hour ride and didn't have to adjust or even think about the saddle. Always a good sign. I used some great resources online to decide the proper size. The saddle really bleeds quality. Only down side is price.

      Comments about Selle SMP Glider Saddle:

      Reading all of the great reviews, I decided to get this saddle. After 4 rides I found it very uncomfortable and wound up returning it. Bought a $50 gel Selle saddle and found it to be so much more comfortable.
