Selle Italia Flite Friction Free saddle. The Selle Italia Flite is a saddle that went through a lot of developments over the last five years. This seat is designed entirely ergonomically. The Selle Italia Flite has extra padding for extra comfort around your sit bones. This saddle has a Lorica saddle-cover. The titanium rails are a good combination of a lightweight and a solid rail. This Selle Italia Flite Friction Free saddle has a narrower nose. This reduces the friction between the insides of your leg and saddle. The Selle Italia Flite is placed in the L1 category. Meaning this saddle is made for riders with wide sit bones and a low flexibility of the pelvis.
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.
