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.
