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
