First off this is not your standard cheap saddle. It is minimalist, well made and comes in at a very low 135 grams. The weight is achieved through a cocktail of exotic materials and design ideas including, carbon shell, closed cell foam padding and feather weight tubular titanium rails. This all as expected comes at a price, around £100.
This sable looks very small and you would think it would be uncomfortable. This really isn’t the case the padding has been stripped down to a minimum but to compensate the saddle flexes to give the comfort needed on a long ride. After putting the saddle through its paces we really were impressed often with light weight saddles you sacrifice comfort but Selle Italia have really got it right here.
Apart form the price there is not really much to hold you back here its super light, super comfortable and looks cool! We have heard a few reports that the leather rips easily but that’s about the same for all saddles, our advice is just don’t crash….. easy right?!?!
