Strengths:    Nice saddle !!! After a year of really bad crotch feeling with previus flite gel flow and fizic airone, finally I borrow from a friend an SLR flow with carbon rails and tested.It was a big improvement for me.

Weaknesses:    Be sure that your seatpost much with wider rails...

Bottom Line:   
As many of you might allready know,there are no bad or good saddles. Its something personal ! Thats why each brand have a varity of products. Crotch vary form people to people.Anyway this saddle is in my hardtail and also in my road bike .Firstly I didnt knew that there is a titanium rails version so I stack with carbon rail version.The bad thing is that in some seatposts might dont fit.In my roadbike I had to bought separately a Ritchey specific adaptor for those rails.It was a nightmare to install the saddle on a FRM blackhole seatpost too and I had to make some modifications on the seatpost... Selle Italia claim a 125 gr bat I measure it at 132 gr

Strengths:    Comfortable and seems to stay that way no matter how long I'm on the bike. Looks cool.

Weaknesses:    White seems to fade a little around the edges.

Bottom Line:   
Best saddle I've ever ridden on. Been racing since '85. Highly recommend it to anyone that is shaped like me (160 lbs/6 feet), rides like me (aggressively), I've ridden saddles that cause numbness after a while. This one? No problem in that area.

Seatpost for SLR Kit Carbonio Flow

I recently acquired a Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow saddle, and found that I had a great deal of difficulty clamping it into my Airborne Laidback Ti seatpost. With a lot of filing and sanding, I finally got it to fit, but it still loosens after a few miles of riding. Does anyone absolutely ... Read More »

Selle Italia SLR Kit Carbonio Flow Saddle

I was wondering if anyone is using this saddle - the one with the carbon rails. I heard they don't mount in the Specialized S-Works carbon seat post - is that right? If so, what seat post are you guy's using? ThanksRead More »
