Strengths:    Comfortable, light, looks great, high quality

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Very happy with this saddle. I probably am approaching 1000 miles on it, and it is my favorite so far. I have a Specialized Toupe on my other bike, and like it as well, but I think the Selle is maybe even more comfortable. I usually ride between 20 and 35 miles at a time, with up to 70 on occasions, and have stayed comfortable with it. I mounted it on a Ritchey Super Logic post with the clamp for the wider rails, and it is a great light!!

Strengths:    Weight, design and build

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Very comfortable for a light saddle. The cutout really works, no more numbness during long rides and uphills. Shifted from Fizik Antares carbon which had a similar design except for the cutout. Bottomline, this is probably the best lightweight saddle out there in terms of comfort. I love you Selle Italia for thinking of putting in that cut out. I'll never go back to one that doesn't have a cut out.

Strengths:    More comfortable for flat top lovers. Cut out helps and not overdone. Actually very comfortable for such a light weight.

Weaknesses:    Pricey, but my rear appreciates it.

Bottom Line:   
New 2011 version with flatter top. 115g. Much more comfortable for me due to flat top and cut out over my previous slr carbonio. If you like a more flat top saddle so you can freely move around, this is for you. It reminds me of my old rolls or regal saddles in ability to move comfortably about. Great for me!

Strengths:    lightweight;
the right amount of padding in the right places;
looks great

Weaknesses:    expensive - but worth evey penny

Bottom Line:   
Best saddle I've ever used. My Trek Madone 5.5 came with a bontrager saddle which numbed me out on longer rides plus gave me an ED issue.
This Selle Italia SLR Carbonio saddle is just incredible - just enough padding in the right places plus the cut-out made my rides, and home life, very much more enjoyable.

SLR Kit Carbonio Flow Vs. 2008 Selle Italia SLR Flow

Was wondering if anyone knew if there was a difference in padding in the two saddles. All the descriptions, seem to say that the padding is the same, just the carbon rails is the difference? Searching for a new saddle and I have narrowed it down to these two. Anyone comment on the comfort of the two ... Read More »
