The new Selle Italia Flite is a classic saddle updated. Most of us will have perched upon a Flite – seemingly the saddle of choice during the nineties – at some stage. With the evolving shape of saddles though, the Flite has been left behind. Until now.
Keeping the essence of what made the Flite a popular saddle, the revised shape is certainly more distinctive. The dropped nose houses a recessed logo, the sides are more flared and the rear section of the saddle is more dropped than before, detailed with a loophole – answers in the forum as to the purpose of this feature…
Four versions are available; standard, Gel Flow with a cut-away channel, the Genuine Gel picture here and the carbon railed Carbiono – the lightest at 140g. All saddles share a full leather cover with silicone gel inserts and padding that takes the shape of your rear.
Prices from £69.99 to £109.99
