The regular SLR is mostly suitable for use on the road, but the Selle Italia SLR X-Cross Flow saddle has been designed for off-road adventures. The SLR X-Cross Flow has the same dimensions and shape, but fitted with extra padding and a Fibra-Tek saddle deck. The extra padding increases rider comfort and the Fibra-Tek saddle deck is extremely robust and durable. The edges of the X-Cross Flow saddle have been reinforced as well to improve durability.
This saddle has a flat rear part, making it highly suitable for riders who remain stationary on their saddle while they ride and whose hips don’t rock from side to side at all. The flat shape provides more support than a round saddle would for these riders.
This is a semi-flat saddle, meaning that the saddle is flat at the front, and raised a little at the back. The shape makes it particularly suitable for riders with a moderate degree of flexibility in their spine. This has to do with how easily these riders can rotate their pelvis: they might need a little extra support when riding upright, but can manage on their own when riding on the drops.
This saddle has a cut-out and alleviates pressure for those who often experience discomfort or pressure to their soft tissue areas.
