Jettison that boat anchor of a saddle you've got now in favor of the featherweight Selle Italia SLR Titanium. Weighing in at a scant 125 grams you'd be hard pressed to go much lighter unless, uh, you opted for no saddle and that's just not too practical. Italians know saddles and the complete package of a carbon shell plus tubular titanium rails wrapped in a leather cover simply radiates class. Euro pros win Monuments and Tour de France stages atop Selle Italia SLRs, what can you accomplish with one of your own?
Genuine leather cover over lightweight EVA padding
Tubular titanium rails for the perfect balance of strength and lightweight
I tried nummerous saddles (5 or 6)trying to find one that is comfortable. I'm 5'11" and 173lbs. My rides average 30 to 50 miles. I don'like saddles with a dip. To me, they feel like your riding a swayback horse. Another words, I like a flat saddle and this one is. If sliding off the back has been a concern for you, you may want to consider others. It is a little slippery and because there is no up curve in the back, you do need to be carefull, but I am very happy with is saddle with regards to looks, weight, comfort, and no nummbness.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
