Vibration Absorption
Aerodynamics
Looks
Weight


Weaknesses:    Price (but it's worth it)
Fore-aft adjustment is minimal


Bottom Line:   
I decided to buy a much more decent saddle after my previous one snapped in half. I tested several saddles, such as Fizik's Arione, Aliante and Antares, and Selle Italia's Flite, SLK, and SLC. But the saddle I found most compatible to my rear is this SLR. I was supposed to buy the one with Titanium rails, since I find it more reassuring than carbon, but what the heck, the shop owner offered me the Fibra at the same price. All said and done, this saddle has proven its bang for the buck. Although very slim and hard, this saddle will feel quite comfy, absorbing much road vibrations, and its pretty darn aero, although it's not exactly for everyone. It's very light at 135 grams, and it makes your bike look fast. You MUST try it before you buy it. If it doesn't fit you, it hurts. Period.

Just wanted to see what riders thought of either of these saddles. I recently got a Antares but am thinking about switching to the SLR. The Antares just doesn't sit comfortably. Any thoughts?Read More »

Selle Italia SLR Fibra saddle mounting-need help

So, in a fit of weakness, I bought a new Selle Italia SLR Fibra saddle for my 2009 Specialized S-Works SL-2. Needless to say, the carbon SLR rails are a different size than my older saddle. The S-Works seat post uses a side clamp/mount and looks to be designed for a 7mm rail. My existing saddle ... Read More »
