And all night.
Like other Selle Italia saddles that bear the Flow designation, this SL XC Flow has a generous cut-out in the middle third of its length to alleviate pressure on your delicate parts. The SL XC Flow Saddle is wider than Selle Italia's Flite and SLR models. This makes it great if you have wider sit bones and don't feel like those narrower saddles offer the right kind of support.
Even though it's 143mm at its widest point, the SL XC Flow is made for hard riding. The side profile is marked by a generous curve that leaves it no wider than the SLR through the mid-section and towards the nose. This way, you can have the support you need and still have plenty of room for your legs to cycle up and down without chafing or pinching at the edge of a too-wide saddle. And in comparison to the SLR, the edges of the saddle roll down more acutely, more along the lines of the cross section seen on the Flite.
The Selle Italia SL XC Flow Saddle is available with a durable Lorica covering in Black and White. Underneath the topsheet, Selle Italia's Perfect Fit self modeling padding ensures comfort over the bumps and a customized feel right out of the box. Though the SL XC Flow is tailored for comfort, it's relatively light due to the fiberglass reinforced nylon shell. The manganese tubular rails are also lightweight, yet plenty strong for a lifetime of service over rough terrain. It measures 143mm wide by 275mm long.
