    Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

    The description of the saddle material says microfiber, but to me it is more of a synthetic leather. The saddle surface is smooth, which allows you to slide up and down the saddle depending on how you are riding, but not so slick that you slide when you don't want to. Only have ridden it about 150 miles so far, but I feel it will be a durable saddle. It is not heavily padded, but it is comfortable. So far so good, and Nashbar is always a good source from which to purchase cycling equipment. Very happy with the purchase and the service.

        Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

        I've been riding a stock Stelle on my Scott CR1 Pro and researching, talking and trying a few different saddles courtesy of my neighbor. However, it was time to purchase a saddle with a cut out. On my routine/daily ride, after the initial 13-15 miles, I was finding my southern hemisphere going numb. However, with this inexpensive purchase problem resolved. I plan longer rides and will update with any change in comfort.

        Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

        I have 2 of these saddles on other bikes. My racing Orbea needed a new saddle so the SL was the perfect choice. Two bonuses for buying this from Nashbar: 1. It's the first I've been able to buy one in all black. My other two are white/red and black/red. Really prefer the all black.
        2. The price!! This isn't a second or off brand item. This is a top shelf saddle! Nashbar was $30 less then the closest competitor.

        Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

        As a small guy who likes to slide back on the saddle and needs a cut-out for tailbone, this is a great supportive, comfortable, but not heavily padded saddle. I have used for 6 months on my road bike and bought a new one two weeks for my mtn bike riding drops to upright position. Nice saddle for mid-priced.

            This replaced a worn out saddle and was comfortable from the beginning. It is rigid enough that it is a solid foundation for power transfer. Great price!

              Nice overall should be noted it is a fiberglass base not carbon, there is no mention in the specs about this. I have only ridden this about 2 months so it will be interesting to see how durable this is

              This is a light well made seat. It just didn't fit me well and I couldn't get comfortable on it. Maybe it would fit you better. Seats are pretty personal.

              Smaller than Nashbar Specs

              Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

              The specs on Nashbar state the width is 145. I compared it to a 140 width saddle and this seat is more narrow, probably 130. The cushioning is tolerable as long as I wear shorts with a chamois. I probably would not have bought it if I had known how narrow it really is. I will eventually replace it with a wider seat. I would recommend this to someone who wants a lightweight, narrow seat with some cushioning and cutout.
