C2 Gel Flow Saddle

The Selle Italia C2 Gel Flow Saddle blurs the lines between a firm race saddle and a comfort-oriented setup. The anatomic cutout and gel padding reduce the incidence of hotspots, while the manganese rails and leather top ensure that the C2 Gel Flow is built to put in the miles. So, if you find a rock-hard racing saddle to be too minimalist, but you still want a supportive saddle, you've just found a match.

The comfort of the C2 saddle starts with its nylon shell. It's designed to provide plenty of support for pedaling all-day, but it has enough flex built-in to cancel out most chatter and road vibration. The targeting padding tells a similar story -- it's supportive, but with plenty of give. It starts with an extra dose of foam as compared to Selle Italia's race-driven saddles, and it's topped off with a thin layer of gel. The gel used here is a far cry from the seat covers that you've seen. Instead of feeling like a bar stool, the C2 uses just enough padding to take the sting out of the roughest roads and bumpiest trails. However, it's still firm enough to protect you from hot spots. Additionally, the shape of the saddle naturally directs your body weight towards the rear of the saddle where your sit bones are able to take the brunt of support. And to make this more comfortable, the C2 features a 136mm width -- that's around 5mm wider than the SLR linen of saddles.

Differentiating itself from the standard C2 Genuine Gel saddle, the Flow features a respectably sized cutout. As a result, that pressure is directed to your sit bones (ischial tuberosity), which are far more adept at supporting your body weight. Additionally, they're able to do so without causing numbness during long rides. This principle is further supported by the wide cut out, as it removes pressure from the pudendal nerve. Essentially, this is a nerve that runs from around the third vertebrae, all the way down towards your foot. And when compressed at the perineum region, it is one of the major contributors to numbness. So, by relieving the very threat of pressure, your blood flow remains consistent, eliminating numbness.

Supporting the saddle itself are Selle Italia's Manganese Tube rails. These rails are lightweight, but they're also strong enough for off-road use. And on the topic of durability, the perforated leather cover not only breathes to keep you cool, but it's hard wearing and naturally abrasion-resistant.

The Selle Italia C2 Gel Flow Saddle is available in a 136x276mm size and in the color Black.

  • Extremely light, comfortable saddle for both on- and off-road
  • Breathable cover helps prevent hot spots
  • Targeted padding with gel inserts cushions where you need it
  • Manganese tube rails are light, yet tough enough for off-road

Replaced my stock saddle with this

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have a Scott Addict 20 Disc and it comes with a Syncros RR2.0 which for me gave my butt so much pain, yes it's a cool looking saddle and is fairly light but it doesn't have much cushioning and doesn't have channel relief. When people think of gel saddles they think of thick heavy mushy seats that are more uncomfortable on long rides than anything and look like something your grandma would use. The C2 Gel Flow saddle is by no means the Lazy Boy of saddles but is so much more comfortable than most stock saddles with this leather cover, gel inserts, and channel relief while only being at 260g. I would say the saddle does need some breaking in but afterwards it's pretty awesome. Shipping was fast with the free 2 day option and the sale price is great.

Good saddle

    Comfortable, and not too much cushion.

    It’s the cut!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a narrow sit bone width and have always had difficulty finding a seat that make my rear happy. Borrowed a friend’s bike with this seat and I was sold immediately. The middle cut-out portion is also appreciated. Just the right amount of padding, firm but comfortable. 5 hours on a very hilly ride yesterday and this saddle did not let me down.

    I love it!

    Upgraded from stock saddle to this and rode over 700 miles on it without a single problem. Not too hard, not too soft, no numbness. I think Selle Italia is gonna be my brand :)

    I agree with this reviewer completely!
