The Selle Italia SLR Friction Free Flow is an anatomically shaped saddle with cutout for the sensitive parts. The cover is durable and the light padding offers plenty comfort. The round titanium rails keep the weight low.
Friction Free saddles are smaller in the front, which reduces the friction between your thighs and the side of the saddle. The energy that is saved can be as high as 0.7 W per pedal stroke, which is 70W/min. The energy that is necessary for the last 20 degrees of the pedal stroke is reduced. There is also less pressure on the nerves in the hip and the popliteal arteries and veins (to the lower leg and foot).
This saddle has a semi-round rear part, making it highly suitable for riders who move a little while they ride and whose hips rock a little from side to side. The semi-round shape provides plenty of support for those riders while maintaining sufficient freedom of movement compared to a flat saddle.
This is a completely flat saddle which provides plenty freedom of movement. The shape makes it particularly suitable for riders with a high degree of flexibility in their spine. People with a flexible spine will have no trouble rotating their pelvis, meaning they won’t need any additional support to maintain their optimal riding position.
