Strengths:    It is typical Sella Italia, well built and designed. It is very light weight at 150 grams and a great edition to any pro road bike. I probably shaved 70 grams over the SLK saddle.

Weaknesses:    Hard, flow foam would help, but may not be necessary. I will give a extended report after I spend more time in the saddle.

Bottom Line:   
I have the SLR Team Contador spl ed. it has his signature and more graphics otherwise it is physically identicle. White Lorica cover, carbon composite base w carbon rais. 150 gms. I initially felt very hard. I wore padded shorts on my first test ride and it felt firm but comfortable. No hot spots for 2 hrs ride. The narrow nose allows very easy movement forward and aft. There is a small indentation where you set for the perfect fit and feel. I chose the SLR because I used a SLK flow model for 4 years and it is my favorite saddle so far. If you have any experience with Selle Italia, I recommend this saddle.
