A slightly-wider Flite.

Selle Italia’s venerable Flite Saddle has long been a favorite of road racers, mountain bike riders, and just about everyone else in between, but it doesn’t fit those cursed with wider-than-average sit bones. Enter the Max Flite Gel Flow. The Max Flite takes the classic Flite shape, and hits the ‘enhance’ button a couple times, resulting in a quite long, mid-width saddle that’s every bit as comfortable as its more streamlined brethren. Final measurements are 146x290mm, which put it about 10mm wider than your average, narrow-width saddle.

The extra width, combined with firm gel under the cover, and the Flow pressure relief channel, make the Max Flite ideal for long rides over less-than-ideal tarmac, or even gravel.

  • Wider version of the long-running Flite
  • Gel inserts to reduce vibration
  • 146mm width

Ischial tuberosity pain, GONE!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Keeping this short. Looked for a seat that would fit my medium to wide seat profile, not an easy task. Went in for a bike fitting and this seat was presented to me. Can ride all day on this seat and my hands give out before my bumm does. Love it!

I'm concerned about the side strength and...

I'm concerned about the side strength and possible sagging. I weigh about 300lb.


heavier but much more comfortable

    i'm 5'9 and weigh 165-lbs, and i rarely have issues with seat comfort, yet i found this saddle to be a noticeable improvement over my prior SI's. i bought this saddle for a new build due to extremely attractive pricing (found on sale) and i am incredibly happy with it.

    pros - comfort is amazing, gel padding really works. thickness takes a little getting used to, but streamlined shape helps avoid a bulky feel.

    cons - the only thing i can think of is that it adds 50-100g in weight vs. most other selle italias, but that's more than offset by the increased riding comfort in my opinion, especially if you can find it for just over $100.

    Great value in an incredibly comfortable saddle when you can find it on sale.

    i've ridden it several times, but not enough to be able to comment on wear/tear, so will update later if needed.

    Hello there Rickshaw.

    ¿Have you tried the SLR Max Flow? and if you have, ¿which do you prefer and why? Thanks a lot

    I haven't tried the SLR max flow, so can't compare/contrast. sorry.
