Selle Royal Seta S1 saddle - in brief review£59.99

Modest-priced performance saddle

BikeRadar score3/5

The Seta's long narrow shaping has somewhat of the look of Fizik's Arione about it, though its not quite as long.

It also shares the more glamorous manufacturer's rear 'integrated clip system' for accessories such as lights – no surprise given that Selle Royal is the parent company of Fizik (as well as Brooks).

The Seta's nylon hull is ribbed to prevent it from twisting – the long rails leave a lot of unsupported hull, which means plenty of flex despite the flat shape. This makes the Seta seriously comfortable for a racy saddle. The textured top and gloss sides make shifting around on its flat surface easy and friction free.

All in all, for its modest price the Seta is a decent saddle for performance riders.
