The latest Flite is much flatter than the original. Combined with a slightly dropped nose, it works well for stable riders and big saddle-to-bar drops, but if you need a saddle that helps you stay in position it isn’t the best choice.
The padding is firm and a broad nose provides reasonable comfort ‘on the rivet’. The Flow version has a pressure-relieving cutout in the centre, but if you don’t get on with holes, the standard Flite is the same shape but solid.
It’s beautifully made and hollow titanium rails keep the weight down.
