The Selle Italia SLR C59 saddle is fully made of carbon fibre with an extremely low weight of just 63g! This way you can save up to 150g compared to an average saddle and makes it easier to climb. This saddle is not only lightweight, it is also stiff and comfortable. The SuperFlow cutout offers unequalled comfort by taking away pressure points, and the carbon rails are stiff so the saddle doesn’t sag. Because it is 100% carbon, it also reduces friction in the groin.
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.
