The Native One from Selle San Marco’s off-road offshoot, Dirty, is a firm perch. Actually, that’s putting it mildly – it feels really hard and is definitely more XC race than all-mountain plush in terms of padding.
That said, the shape is extremely comfortable, with a wide rear section and a contoured profile that’s claimed to relieve pressure on your sit bones. This makes the Native One a pleasurable place to sit on long spins despite the firmness of the surroundings.
Weighing in at just 232g, riders who are looking to shed every available gram will be satisfied, especially at this price. Selle San Marco’s legendary build quality is here in spades too, and all of the tidy red detailing (three other options are available) is still in place after a couple of beastly months of riding and washing.
