    Lorica covering is hard wearing

Built on the platform of the extremely popular SLR saddle, the Selle Italia SLR Gel Flow Team Edition has big shoes to fill.

Featuring a slightly stiffer base, padding that moulds to your shape ensures a comfortable ride.

A cut-out relieves pressure, with no discomfort experienced on many six-hour rides. The nose also has enough padding for comfort.

Build quality and longevity are worth a mention. the Lorica covering stayed in very good condition, outlasting other leading brands.
