Selle Italia SLR Flow review
Its shape isn't as supportive, in the sense that the rear end is narrower than others, and there's no rise to push back against, which was noticeable on longer climbs. With a keen price, low weight, and comfort, in every other area, it's a great choice.
Selle Italia fit system finds the match for you
Rear end narrower than other models on test
Selle Italia offers an ‘ID Match' system to help you find the perfect perch.
It requires a fairly scientific procedure involving certain measurements and data input, and can only be accomplished at an associated dealer.
The process resulted in my designation as an ‘S2' fit, and the best recommendation was this, the SLR Flow.
A low profile design is great to move around on and the pressure relief channel seems to be successful, as I never had any cause for complaint. In fact, it's a saddle that manages to disappear underneath you, offering total comfort.
