The least uncomfortable saddle at last.
I can't say that any saddle is comfortable because they aren't completely during a ride. No chair is for two or more hours either, no matter how soft. This saddle comes the closest though, and is the least uncomfortable for the duration of rides. I have Fizik Aliante R3, R5 and Gamma saddles and they come close as well but the leather on this saddle makes a positive difference I think. More breathable or something. Firm and yet yielding somehow. Not bouncy because of foam. I will be keeping my Aliante saddles but this leather old fashioned Selle Italia is my new favourite for my bikes.
This has been my saddle for 25+ years. Comfortable and durable. Don't mess with what works. And this Brit company takes care of business. Fast shipping. Good job.
Can't get any better than a comfortable classic
My original lasted 20 years of XC and DH. Patched up the knocks over the years but finally wore through. Tried 3 or 4 modern saddles in quest to replace including a 2017 Selle Italia gel but nothing matched the feel, stability and comfort of the original Flite so decided to go back to the Flite. Matching it against the old saddle it is EXACTLY the same in shape and size and construction and after two rides my rear end thanks me!! Only wish I didn't waste money on trying others. Simply irreplaceable and as comfortably classic as ever!
Selle Italia Flite 1990 Saddle
Still ergonomic, and comfortable after all these years. This is a classic, dependable, durable saddle for your weekend ride or commuter. I especially appreciate this saddle for my two '90s era bicycles. And always for a great price at PBK. Recommended.
Vintage Saddle Revisited
I have been using these saddles since 1990 when they came out. Currently, I have three of these on my bikes. Considering I have narrow sit bones the saddlefitsme perfectly. I am not surprised Selle Italia continues to manufacture them. They still show the same quality as the original and the hold up well. Last year I finally replaced my 15 year old saddle. I just hope they keep on making them.
Selle Italia Flite saddle
An excellent retro style saddle with strong titanium rails and leather cover
Selle Italia Flite Saddle
It is as advertised: almost an exact duplicate of the Flite saddle that I had been using since 1997. Only the texture of the leather has changed - less glossy but just as comfortable. The price was reasonable; delivery was prompt.
The best saddle ever!!!
It's still the best saddle, non of the new saddles on the market are as comfortable and long lasting
Great classic saddle
Excellent narrow hip/sit bone saddle with comfortable round contour. I have been riding with this saddle since the 1990's and have it on all my bikes as well as a spare that I take when traveling to use on rental bikes.
A clasic that stands the test of time!
To find the same vintage saddle today in a brand new condition is truly a joy! Now the vintage bicycle project can really get going. It's beautifully shaped and in my opinion, as having the best balance between lightness and comfort. At 230g it's not the lightest around compared to the ones you get these days, but it's the saddle that started it all. There is a slight difference though, the new titanium rail is more horizontal at its base compared to the older saddle's rail which is more sloping. This changes some settings on your seat post. Simplistic and minimalist, this must be one of the best cycling saddles ever made. Selle Italia's continued production of this evergreen saddle is testament to it's enduring appeal.
