Selle Italia has something for everyone in 2019

New road, MTB and e-bike saddles

Selle Italia's 2019 range has something for everyone

This video was produced in association with Selle Italia.

Selle Italia makes a vast array of saddles and for 2019 the highlights are the new SP-01 Boost road saddle, the X-LR for MTB and 'cross, and the e-bike-specific X-Land.

The SP-01 Boost is a new variant of the SP-01, which launched last year, offering 'wings' that can flex independently as you pedal. 

The X-LR is a new model for off-road riding, whether that's MTB, gravel or 'cross. It's got a slightly dipped nose and a shock absorber up front for comfort, along with an abrasion-resistant covering. The X-Land has a similar remit but is designed specifically to meet the needs of e-bikers. 

Watch our video for full details on the new seats, straight from the horse's mouth.
