Selle Italia Flite Titanium team edition L1 saddle - in brief $209.95

Latest Flite keeps the flag flying

BikeRadar score 4/5

The early iterations of Selle Italia's Flite were the first true modern race saddles. Longer and lighter than previous shapes, the design proved incredibly popular, to the extent that the original 1990 model is still available today.

This 2014 version is flatter than its ancestor and wider too. Its carbon reinforced hull offers plenty of flex, and the flat top is plushly upholstered.

The classic swan neck-shaped nosepiece with its flat padded sides remains, the smooth top section is seam free and the textured surface holds onto Lycra well even when wet.

It adds up to a saddle that offers impressive comfort for a high-performance race perch.
