Selle Italia takes the race proven SLR shape to a new level of comfort with the Max SLR Gel Flow.

In this new design, the minimalist SLR has been outfitted with an oversized Flow cutout to relieve pressure and prevent numbness. Gel inserts of varying thicknesses provide ample cushioning where need and self molding padding provides body contoured support everywhere else.

The lightweight shell is designed using 10% carbon fiber composite modified using a unique Co-Molding technique. In this process Selle Italia adds a special co-polymer rubber/nylon to the carbon along with an springy elastomer, increasing the saddle flex and suspension without compromising strength.

The Max SLR Gel Flow features a durable and breathable Lorica synthetic leather cover. Tubular Vanox rails provide additional weight savings and uncompromising strength. 145mm x 275mm. The claimed weight is 270 grams.

Jury is still out

No more numbness in the man parts, but my sit bones feel like someone has spent two hours kicking me in the ass after my rides. Still tweaking the seat angle and it has gotten slightly better. But the jury is still out on this one.

Comfort and Style

Switched my stock saddle with Max SLR and immediately noticed a huge improvement. It was my first cut out saddle and they really do work with blood flow. The gel still has the firmness needed for longer rides. Lastly, the saddles looks sweet on my bike. With BTD prices, this saddle is a great value.

The right shape with a little give

This saddle is the right shape for me and the gel provides just enough give without being soft. The big cutout works for me, too. I'm 6'1 and 185 lbs. Fairly flexible, can touch my toes, and ride in what I'd call a moderately aggressive position.

great saddle for a fair price - not inexpensive but these products last and provide good performance for the bucks

have used selle italia gel saddles both off and on road for years and have found they consistently deliver comfort, high performance with long lasting durability. they handle mud, wet, sand and sweat and still look great after a clean up and air drying.

most of my riding is now on the road for recreation and commuting so would expect my selle italia saddles to last for quite sometime.

This seat was not for med. Because of my old age I need a seat with more padding.. I reordered a different seat from tires direct.

I still have a 5 year old Selle Italia seat that I still use. However I purchased a new Full carbon bike and the seat that comes with this bike is not comfortable for me. This particular seat that I ordered from Tires Direct was a little too firm for me. So I talked to an associate from the returns dept. who was very helpful in suggesting a seat that might be more comfortable for me. So I ordered it and his advice was excellent. I really like this new seat. It is Selle Italia L2 Man Gel Flow, a good fit for me and meets my comfort needs. Great company to do business with, quality products at very fair prices. I have been road biking for 60 plus years but my passion for the last 20 years is mtn. biking.

Great saddle, just not for me

I brought the Selle Italia SLR Gel Flow to replace my Selle Italia C2 Gel Flow since it was wearing out. I shift my riding position a lot on 200K and 300K rides, thus I thought the Max SLR Gel Flow's flatter profile would suit me better than the curve shape of the C2. It is a lightweight saddle with a larger cut-out than my C2 which I thought would relieve pressure point from my seat bone area of my butt.

Unfortunately, the mid-point on the both side of the saddle is too shallow compared to the C2 and did not have enough support for my seat bone on my 5'6, 142 lb frame, causing some major bruising after one ride. I wind up exchanging it for the Flite Flow which is a wider saddle with even flatter profile on the recommendation of one of the sales rep. It is just as light as the Max SLR Gel Flow but with much more support for my seat bone. Thank you BTD for great customer service in product knowledge and hassle-free exchange. It is few of the reasons why I continue to shop from BTD.

Great Road Saddle

This is my second SLR. I have not found a performance saddle for road riding that matches the SLR's comfort, suppprt and overall killer cosmetics. Other saddles I currently own Brooks Cambium B17 and WTB Silverado.

Awesome

This is the most comfortable road saddle I have found. I bought a second one. The newest one has a pointless piece of carbon fiber sewn into the top that I dislike, but other than that I highly recommend giving this saddle a try

Well built saddle that improves the discomfort guys don't want to discuss.

I switched from a Specialized saddle that I thought was very comfortable. While this new saddle has caused some saddle soreness because of different sit bone contact, overall I find it to comfortable and made with very good quality.
