The Selle Italia Flite is a saddle that has seen a lot of developments over the last 5 years. The saddle is fully ergonomically designed. The Selle Italia Flite has additional padding for more comfort around the sit bones. The saddle has a Lorica saddle deck. The titanium rails provide a compromise between a light-weight rail and a solid rail. The Selle Italia Flite is placed in the L1 category. This means that the saddle is suitable for a rider with wide seat 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.
