Selle Italia SLR Tekno Flow Saddle $612.00
Perfection with a touch of padding.
The Selle Italia SLR Tekno Flow Saddle is an exercise in minimalism, and surprisingly, that's a good thing. You're looking at a saddle that only weighs around 115 grams, but despite its light weight, the Tekno Flow takes advantage of an anatomic cutout and a low-profile Lorica cover in order to deliver far more comfort than you'd expect out of this decidedly firm racing saddle. Basically, if you have your eyes on the checkered flag, this saddle will get you there without compromise.
The SLR Tekno Flow starts off with a 100% carbon fiber base, which is stiff, supportive, and lightweight. True to the SLR designation, this saddle has a 131mm tail width and 275mm length, so it accommodates those with medium width sit bones comfortably. A possible misconception about this saddle is that only the perimeter of the saddle has been constructed of carbon fiber. However, it actually shares the standard Tekno's 100% carbon construction, only the Flow features a touch of padding and a low-friction, hard-wearing Lorica cover.
This saddle is supported by Selle Italia's carbokermaic rails. Not only are they durable and light, but they also provide vibration damping. And although its claimed weight is a ridiculously light 115 grams, this seat is, in fact, rated for off-road use.
The Selle Italia SLR Tekno Flow Saddle is available in 131x275mm size and in the color Black.
