Saddle maker Selle Italia has launched a new saddle called the SP-01 that moves the brand’s SuperFlow cut-out to the rear, offering pressure relief and ‘wings’ that can flex independently of one another.
Alongside the SP-01 range, the Novus Boost is a comfort-focussed addition to the existing Novus range, with double padding for maximum squish and a SuperFlow cut-out in the more familiar forward position.
Selle Italia has also debuted a new cleat setup system, which comprises an app and an alignment jig that uses a laser for precise adjustment.

Matthew is an experienced mechanic and an expert on bike tech who appreciates practical, beautifully-engineered things. Originally a roadie, he likes bikes and kit of every stripe, and he's tested a huge variety of both over the years for BikeRadar, Cycling Plus and others. For a long time Matthew's heart belonged to the Scott Addict, but he's currently enjoying Trek's lovely aluminium Emonda ALR and having a torrid affair with a Giant Trance e-MTB. At 174cm tall and 53kg, he looks like he should be better at cycling than he actually is, and he's ok with that.
