Description

Next stop: pro team time trials.

Did you know that Selle Italia sponsors 20 teams in the Pro Tour and Pro Continental ranks? Hands down, the SLR is the saddle of choice for many of the riders on those teams. Why? It's perhaps the ultimate meeting ground of breathtaking lightness and comfort. And for those sponsored teams, Selle Italia has given them this special SLR Team Edition Saddle. The white leather cover and red accents make it easy to pick out amongst the sea of riders as they stand and weave up the grinding climbs in the Giro or Tour, and this is the exact same saddle your favorite riders will depend on.

This SLR Team Edition Saddle uses braided, long-fiber carbon rails to save weight and give it a wicked 21st century look. The rails aren't alone in using carbon fiber. The injection molded shell is made of 30% carbon as well. The self-modeling Perfect Fit foam padding is lightweight and offers enough support without leaving your soft parts feeling pressure from a too soft nose.

The carbon fiber rails are plenty strong and are definitely lighter than steel or titanium. They do take, however, a bit more care when setting them up. The rails are designed to withstand loads over the entirety of the rails, not take extreme force in extremely small sections. This is to say, that as strong as they are, the rails can be damaged by excessive seat post clamping force. Selle Italia recommends going by the seat post manufacturer's recommendations in terms of maximum clamping torque. If you can't find these, or if they don't exist, Selle Italia says no more than 8Nm of force.

The SLR Team Edition Saddle is available with a White Lorica cover with red accents. It is 131mm wide and 275mm long. Selle Italia vets for the fact that it's tough enough for both road and off-road usage.

just an awesome look to complete the total package that came with my '12 FP Team the carbon fiber rails give it a super exotic look super comfortable even after riding a 4hour ride.
