Contrary to the item description, this saddle is not identical in shape to the SLR. It is substantially narrower through the middle of the saddle with a quicker flare out to where your sit bones will reside. This is the very reason that I have come to love the SLS Monolink. I've ridden the Flite (older versions), various SLR's, all of Fizik's models, a couple of Prologos, and Specialized Toupe saddles. I've found relative comfort on the narrow version of some of these but always felt like the saddle was cutting into the inside of my legs at the point where the saddle begins to flare from the nose. So, anyone with narrow hips that has struggled to find a saddle that is narrow enough and always find their seatpost clamp polished from leg rub, do yourself a favor and give the Monolink a try.
