Selle Italia Evolution3 Saddle

3.67/5 (3 Reviews)
Weight : 110 grams


Product Description

Weighing in at 110 grams, the EVOLUTION 3 is the lightest saddle available. In terms of pure technology the Evolution 3 is the results of several years research and trials using a Carbon/Kevlar braid in conjunction with a tubular Titanium rail. A special “shock absorber” at the forward end reduces road vibrations.

Who's gonna buy this thing? Navy seals who are in torture endurance training and have a lot of expendable income?
