SLR Kit Carbonio Superflow S Saddle
Selle Italia has a way of defining the future, releasing saddle shapes that seem extreme at the time and later go on to become icons. Take the Flite for instance and more recently, the SLR. The minimalist design still provides enough support for the pros who don't dare skimp in an effort to shave grams, given the amount of saddle time they put in. The SLR keeps evolving and we now have various sizes, rail and shell materials, as well as shell cutouts and even the size of those openings. For those looking for a super lightweight option with the largest pressure reducing cutout, have a look at the SLR Kit Carbonio Superflow S Saddle.
This saddle has a 135mm width and 275mm length, the same as the original SLR, making it a perfect platform for most cyclists. However, where the Kit Carbonio Superflow deviates is pretty obvious with its larger than average cutout helping to relieve pressure on the perineal artery and soft tissue. So the areas that do receive pressure are your appropriately named sit bones, or ischial tuberosity if you remember Latin, which are adept at supporting your body weight. Say goodbye to numbness on long rides and no more fidgeting around sacrificing a powerful position in an effort to find comfort.
The Kit Carbonio lineup also differs from the rest of the SLR line in its padding. It's a little less dense than the Team Edition but thicker than the Tekno. However, it's nowhere near as dense as anything in the Flite or SLS families. And along with a modest amount of padding, the saddle has been wrapped with a hard-wearing and smooth Fibra-Tek cover.
The SLR Kit Carbonio Superflow hovers on CarboKeramic rails. This material drastically drops grams and helps reduce and dissipate road vibration. It comes in around 145 grams further aided by the hybrid 70/30% nylon/carbon fiber shell construction.
The Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Superflow S Saddle is available in a 135x275mm size and in the color Black.
