Selle Italia SLR Friction Free Flow Saddle. Featherweight and plenty comfortable are not mutually exclusive traits in a saddle - as long as you're riding a Selle Italia SLR Friction Free Flow saddle, that is. The saddle savants at Selle Italia are true innovators and they've once again developed a saddle that equates to performance gains on the bike for even the lengthiest of ride. Firstly, the iconic SLR saddle has been updated with Selle Italia's Friction Free design. The narrower shape extending along the nose to the rear of the saddle - as advertised - reduces friction between the inner thigh and saddle's side. The benefit? Increased comfort and performance. Secondly, the Flow cutout protects your soft tissue and makes even mega-miles a pleasure. The SLR is a staple in the Euro pro peloton - Monuments and Grand Tours have been won on this saddle - and its minimalist design, titanium rails, plus synthetic Fibra-Tek cover most assuredly mean business. And Selle Italia saddles are still lovingly made by hand in Italy, the spiritual home of cycling.
