The Selle Italia XR Gel Flow Saddle is made for off-road cyclists in need of comfort at a fair price. The XR Gel Flow is comfortable because of its Gel Flow construction. This combines gel padding with a cut-out. This offers a soft perch to sit on and reduces pressure on soft tissue areas. As it's a saddle which you'll be using off-road, it needs to be a little more robust so there are two additional technologies incorporated into this saddle. The Fec Alloy rail is extremely strong but flexible, giving you a little extra comfort. The saddle top meanwhile is made from the durable Duro-Tek material.
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 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.
