Perfect.

I don't mind paying for comfort so I gave this saddle a try based on the reviews and the idea behind it. The bonus is this saddle is light too. As an avid rider/racer for last 20 years, I have about 1.5 years on the Superflow now and it's my favorite of all the saddles i've ever owned.

SLR Flow is lighter, cheaper, and more comfortable

For me, the huge hole did not work. I could feel the edges of the cutout, and there never seemed to be enough saddle there to support my sit bones. The SLR shape, though, works well for me. The regular SLR Flow (i.e., not Super) has a smaller cutout, weighs less and costs less which, for me, has been an unbeatable combination.

Excellent saddle

I have 900 miles on this saddle so far. I got this for my new Colnago given that my old SLK is no longer available.

I like that this saddle comes in two different widths. I use the 145. This saddle is much lighter than my old SLK but is just as comfortable. If you like a flat saddle this one is for you. Some people complain that they slide on the saddle. I haven't had this problem.

The only complaint I would have is that it is very expensive.

Very nice saddle

This saddle ain't cheap, but it feels good and looks good. Though its got a large channel, its pretty light. The workmanship is great. Its pretty flat, so its easy to slide to different positions and I like that (but not everybody will). Not a lot of padding, but there is some.

This saddle didn't meet expectations.

After reading the Selle Italia ads about this saddle, I was expecting this to be the best of all worlds-a quality product which would relieve pressure and provide comfort for long rides. It was also a daily special which made the price more reasonable. After trying it for a few weeks, I have come away disappointed. It is well-made and the large opening does relieve pressure but cushioning is minimal. However, the worst feature was the leather surface which is so slick that it made for unpleasant riding as I was constantly struggling just to stay in place on it. Perhaps treating the leather with something to give it a little tackiness would improve it dramatically so I may try that next summer. In the meantime, I'll just continue my search for that elusive ideal saddle.

I am impressed!

I am impressed with this, at the price plus the points discount. It's light, very comfortable, elegant, etc. It should be, at its retail price. It's very comfortable on long rides. I've only had it installed for one really long test ride to date. It's the second Selle Itallia saddle I've owned, used. I'm 6'2 and 210 lb. Carbon fibre, Italian leather and titanium are the materials you normally associate with Italian supercars. Know the dimensions and buy at a price. My overall rating is at 4 stars because I haven't ridden it enough yet

Feeling Numb? There is hope!!!!

I bought this saddle to replace the Fizik Anatares I previously had. Don't get me wrong, the Fizik was a great looking and low-weight seat, but I then started to have problems... Down there, if you know what I mean... I figured the numbness was just apart of cycling, so I just dealt with it. Little did I know that my broad seat was causing pressure on my perineum area resulting in the numbness. Turns out this numbness can lead to erectile dysfunction, which at 25 I do not need (may be TMI, but hey, its the truth.

A little research found that this a common problem among cyclist, and there are many saddles made to fight this. I decided to go with the SLR Superflow because of the relatively low weight and profile. Upon receipt of the product (which was promptly shipping by Bike Tires Direct) I was amazed on how big the cut-out actually was... Its massive! It took no time at all to get use to the saddle and I must say that I immediately noticed a difference. I've been riding with this saddle for a couple months now and I can gladly say that the numbness is gone and I am back to my former self.

This saddle combines expert craftsmanship from Selle Italia while providing ample comfort and relief from perineum pressure. I have nothing but praise for this seat, and I highly recommend it if you are facing this problem yourself.

Cheers
