C2 Genuine Gel Saddle

Sometimes you need more padding than a rock-hard racing saddle is able to provide. If this scenario sound all-too-familiar, you'll take a liking to Selle Italia's C2 Genuine Gel Saddle. It has manganese rails and a leather cover for durability, while the supportive gel padding keeps you comfortable mile after mile.

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.

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 Genuine Gel Saddle is available in a 136x276mm size and in the color Black.

  • Gel saddle that changes how you think about gel saddles
  • Comforts to take the edge off harsh pavement and gravel
  • Slimmer design to reduce numbing and unnecessary bulk
  • Lightweight rails are capable off-road
  • Perforated leather covering for long-lasting use and breathability
  • Tuned to move you towards the rear of the saddle for more comfort

Bought this for my “barn find” 90’s Bianchi that will be my around town bike so I wasn’t looking to spend a lot and didn’t need a high end saddle since I wouldn’t be putting in long rides with this bike. Good Selle Italia quality at a great price point - I don’t think I can go wrong with this. I have higher end Selle Italias on my other rides and the quality of this one seems just as good.

Not sure what happened with my C2 but there were signs of wear and fading of the covering in the back half within the first 500 miles. At around 6000 miles one of the rails just failed. Might sound like a lot but if you put miles down that’s less than a couple years of use. A saddle should last longer than that. Pretty narrow, channel is not very wide and very little support in the back of the saddle. In spite of that it was pretty comfy. Appreciating all that now with my replacement saddle.
