The differentiated cushioning zones give progressive absorption and TI 316 rails present energy and guarantee consolation on each pedal stroke. This high-tech road-specific saddle with Carbon DLS™ Know-how is likely one of the most superior in the marketplace and is the right solution to end your dream construct.
I’ve all the time favored Selle Italia saddles, I’ve tried others, however have all the time come again to the Italian model. In the mean time I’ve the Flite Group Concern on each bikes and I’m fairly joyful, so making an attempt one thing new is all the time a bit scary.
Our high tech man, Chuck Peña, has been utilizing the SLR and recommended I attempt it and the 3D saddle wanted testing, so…
The ‘Superflow’ cut-out
I’ve not had the ‘Selle Italia SLR Increase 3D TI 316 Superflow’ saddle for lengthy and solely managed a few rides as a result of warmth and work, however as I obtained a 3D saddle earlier than Chuck, I needed to inform you about it.
It wants an excellent lengthy trip
I used to be despatched the L3, which is barely wider than I’m used to, however there was such a big demand for the saddle that they’ll’t make sufficient of them. White can be my favorite saddle color, however you don’t see the saddle if you end up driving it.
Black saddles – Not as unhealthy as black footwear
The technical particulars about how the saddle is made, you’ll be able to learn on the Selle Italia web site or from individuals who perceive these items, ultimately it comes right down to the way it feels. It being barely wider (as I stated above) than my current saddle was no downside and to be trustworthy it felt like there was extra assist for the ‘glutes’ and fewer stress beneath, which might even be helped by the minimize out, the ‘Superflow’. In truth I didn’t really feel any stress on these elements.
Seems like a vibration damper beneath the nostril of the saddle
The cushioning is completely different at sure factors of the saddle and I might say Selle Italia have gotten that proper, however an extended trip is required to check that absolutely. The SLR 3D is slightly shorter than the Flight, so setting it up was slightly tough. I first set the space from the nostril of the saddle to the bars to the identical size because the flite, however this was too shut as the center of the saddle was now additional ahead. I seen on the Selle Italia web site that the newer Flite can be shorter than those I’ve. Anyway, one centimetre additional again and all was good.
So how does it really feel to trip? Very good. I shouldn’t have frightened about making an attempt an SLR (thanks Chuck). Climbing sat down, there was one thing to push again on, descending you could possibly transfer from side-to-side for bends. With different saddles I had seen they impinged the motion of my thighs on the down stroke, which gave me again ache, no downside in that division. No numbness in any ‘personal elements’, however I’ve by no means had that downside. There was no uncomfortable stress factors or chafing, sure very comfy, strong the place it must be and smooth at these different elements. I’m happy with the texture of the 3D, there was no slipping round that you just get on ‘leather-based’ topped saddles and the know-how in a 3D printed high have to be superior to foam on plastic.
Softer the place you want it and firmer elsewhere
The massive take a look at for me was the subsequent day, even with a saddle you might be used to, that first kilometre can really feel uncomfortable, however all was good with the SLR 3D. My downside now’s that I might want to get one other one for my second bike.

I examined the titanium railed model, it is usually obtainable with carbon rails, which saves about 30g, for round an additional €/$/£100. It is a very comfy saddle, made by cutting-edge know-how. Fashionable to have a look at, will probably be centre of consideration on the cafe and light-weight, what extra might you ask for?
