Merckx Flite Gel Saddle $0.00
Ride a Classic.
Italian designers are known for creating classics. And although Eddy Merckx was not Italian, he too is a classic. Just like its namesake, the Selle Italia Merckx Flite Gel is no exception. The traditionally shaped saddle has been refined for the discriminating rider.
The Selle Italia Flite was one of the first lightweight saddles. The saddle was built upon Ti316 tubular rails, which are both strong and lightweight. At a narrow 145mm width, the saddle allows for ample sit bone contact while also reducing the friction that's caused by your hamstrings rubbing against the saddle. And while the saddle doesn't feature anatomical cutouts, silicone gel inserts have been placed in sensitive areas such as the perineal region in order to reduce pressure. The length of the saddle is 275mm, which further provides support over position changes for climbing and time trials.
The Merckx Flite features a perforated leather cover that softens with age. These perforations also allow air to circulate beneath the cover in order to keep it dry through a long ride.
The Selle Italia Merckx Flite Gel Saddle is available in the color Orange and in a 145x275mm size.
