Your shorts will thank you.

If you're the cyclist who notices you consistently can't get through a full season without the inner thighs of your bib shorts or sides of your saddle wearing prematurely, then you may be part of the 40% of riders that Selle Italia claims aren't getting enough thigh clearance from a traditional saddle. The company created its popular SLR racing saddle in a Friction Free version, which was designed with a much narrower width from the wings to the tip of the nose than traditional saddles. This shape aims to lessen chafing, cut down on pilling shorts, and improve efficiency for a select group of riders.

The SLR Friction Free is built on lightweight titanium rails and is covered with Selle Italia's easy-to-clean Fibra-Tek, which resists wear from the elements over long training miles. Weighing in at a claimed 185g, the saddle's sleek design fits right in among Selle's minimalist SLR racing saddles, even if it is slightly heavier than some of its carbon-railed siblings. The saddle's narrow 131mm width won't suit everyone, but for riders with narrow hips it offers a solution that could save you valuable energy while pedaling.

It just works

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Basically I don't think about my saddle and that's probably the best thing a person can say about one. Even on a double metric I haven't had any concerns. I've been riding Selle Italia for a lotta years and their design just fits my butt.
