Our review

Soft, plush, and comfortable for upright riding positions
Skip to view product specifications

Selle Italia‘s Max SLS Flow is part of the maker’s biologically tuned saddle IDMatch system. Providing a set of measurements gets you a number and, with SI’s whole range having corresponding numbers, it should be easy to find a saddle to suit.


The firm also offers a no-quibble 30 day exchange, so if you buy a saddle and it doesn’t suit you can change it.

The SLS is extremely deeply padded and the fibreglass hull has a huge 105mm cutout. It makes for a very plush perch, ideally suited to more upright riding positions.


Indeed, our racier test riders found the SLS a little too plush – it’s a saddle you sit in rather than shift around on. But if stiff saddles don’t agree with you then the luxuriant SLS just might be what you’re looking for.
