    Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

    I'm 6'2" and 180 lbs and have only had this saddle for a few weeks but feel confident it will stand the test of time from the way it's designed and constructed. Just as an experienced golfer/tennis player can feel the difference between a beginner's set of "oversized" clubs or racquet and quality fine-tuned equipment, I could immediately feel the difference from my stock saddle. Gratzi Selle Italia!

      Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

      I have a Flite Flow on my road bike. Solved male comfort issues. When I wanted to upgrade my mountain bike I went with this saddle that was 1/2 the price and only a touch heavier. I figure the extra grams should make it more durable for the mountain bike as well. The SL Kit Carbino Flow is the same wider (~145 mm) fit as the Flite compared to the regular Kit Carbino Flow (~130 mm), which is a better fit for my sit-bone width.

      Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

      No complaints with this saddle. Most comfortable I've owned or used. I've had an issue with perineal numbness but this seat wiped it out! My ONLY complaint is that the day it arrived, Bike Nashbar put it on sale for $15 less than I paid. This will definitely cause me to wait longer to buy in the future.

          Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

          This is my 3rd seat including my original. I am used to the pain of breaking in a seat, and I've borne with seats that cause discomfort from time to time. But the first time I tried this seat out, I couldn't believe how comfortable it is! I felt like I was riding on air. And subsequent rides have been no different, I am so glad I have a stylish looking and practical seat; makes riding a breeze!

            Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

            I was using a SI-SLR saddle (160gr) but found it slightly uncomfortable on rides longer than 3 hours. This SI-SL Kit Carbonio Flow saddle is heavier (235gr), but still reasonably light and the additional padding does help on rides over 3 hours. I was leary of the microfiber cover but it seems to be holding up so far (6,000 miles) and I cannot feel much difference from the leather covered saddles I'm accustomed to. On sale, this is a good purchase for people who ride a lot and don't need a heavily padded saddle.

              Comments about Selle Italia SL Kit Carbonio Flow SE Saddle:

              After years of riding my beloved well broken in Brooks B-17, I got to the point in life where I needed a little soft tissue relief. I tried a couple other saddles before this one and although they all had the required center cut out, they were hard on the sit bonz. This saddle seems to fill the bill on both areas. Not sure of long term durability yet, but I like the fact that it does not have a leather cover, as it will not be get ruined by being caught in an occasional rainstorm. Only wish I had found this one sooner.

                I have about 1000 miles on the seat now. Took a hundred miles or so to break in. Now fits very well and have no issues with 40 - 80 mile rides. Keep in mind, it is still a little, lightweight saddle.

                  I was looking for a good value with a solid platform. Wanted alloy rails for durability and safety and was willing to add a little weight. This saddle fits the bill and is well made.
